    CBS' Nancy Drew Will Be Diverse
    CBS announced in October that it is developing a new Nancy Drew series. The drama, which is in development, is described as a contemporary take on the character from the iconic book series. Now in her 30s, Nancy is a detective for the NYPD where she investigates and solves crimes using her uncanny observational skills, all while navigating the complexities of life in a modern world. CBS Television Studios-based Dan Jinks will exec produce alongside Grey's Anatomy alums Tony Rater and Joan Phelan, who also have deals with the studio.

    The news comes as CBS is poised to launch DC Comics take Supergirl as the network, under chief Nina Tassler, has made female empowerment a high priority.

    Nancy Drew first appeared in books in 1930 and was originally created by Edward Stratemeyer. The beloved books have been ghostwritten by a series of authors and published under the pseudonym Carolyn Keene. The character has evolved in the decades since, though the original series — Nancy Drew Mystery Stories — ran from 1930-2003. The franchise has included spinoff series including Nancy Drew Files and collaborations with The Hardy Boys.

    The character spawned a TV series — The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries — that ran for three seasons on ABC in the late 1970s starring Pamela Sue Martin (and later Janet Louise Johnson) as well as Shaun Cassidy and Parker Stevens. The series was an anthology of sorts, with some episodes focusing only on Nancy Drew, with amateur sleuth siblings Frank and Joe Hardy. The series was produced by Glen A. Larson Productions and distributed by Universal Television. (Larson passed away in November.)

    The 1970s ABC series was the first to air with Nancy though CBS and producers Desilu (I Love Lucy) produced a pilot starring Roberta Shore that was based on the movies from the 1930s that ultimately never aired after author Harriet Adams (aka Keene) objected. Several other attempts to launch a TV series have been made in the decades since, including a failed Canadian series in the late '80s and '90s which was canceled midway through its first season following poor ratings. More recently, ABC aired a Nancy Drew TV movie starring Maggie Lawson that was slated to run as a back-door pilot. Despite ordering additional scripts, the project did not move forward.

    On the film side, Bonita Granville played Nancy in four Warner Bros. films in the '30s and, more recently, Emma Roberts (Scream Queens) played the famed sleuth in a 2007 movie from the same studio.

    Historically, the character is a feminist icon whose cultural impact has been a great one and has influenced everyone from Sandra Day O'Connor, Hillary Clinton, Oprah Winfrey, Barbra Streisand and more.

    The news comes a day after Netflix announced it was teaming with Norman Lear for an all-Latino remake of his classic sitcom One Day at a Time, as networks make diversity a priority in a bid to attract new underrepresented communities and better reflect society.

    During his time in front of the press Tuesday, Geller stressed that diversity is playing a major role in his development season. "We have a lot of new series in development, both series targeted to have full African-American or Latino casts but also many leads that are being developed [as diverse]. We're not casting color blind, we're casting color conscious," he said.

    The character of Nancy Drew will be played by a black male. Diversity == White Genocide.

    Latinos can't be buffoons. They will have to have a clueless white guy to make fun of.

    Diversity usually means black. Never Asian.

    I wouldn't mind a hot Korean Nancy Drew tasting food.
