The CW’s Nancy Drew pilot has cast Freddie Prinze Jr. as Nancy’s estranged dad. Prinze was arguably one of the most well-known teen stars of the 1990s and early 2000s, starring in a host of popular rom-coms and horror films, including a stint as Fred in the Scooby-Doo live-action films and a small role on Friends.
Based on the long-running series of novels about a young girl who excels at solving mysteries, the Nancy Drew TV adaptation will follow the famous teen sleuth as she works to crack a harrowing murder case that holds her back from her first year at college. Though the books began in the 1930s as a female counterpoint to the Hardy Boys series for young male readers, the passing years have seen Nancy Drew stories updated and reinvented again and again. There is apparently much life in the character, as well as the IP, and The CW appears ready to take the famed super sleuth to new heights with her own TV series.
