Graceland alumna Vanessa Ferlito is set for a co-starring role in Drew, CBS’ drama pilot based on the Nancy Drew character from the classic mystery book series.

Written by Joan Rater and Tony Phelan and directed by James Strong, Drew is described as a contemporary take on the character from the books, with Nancy, now in her 30s, working as 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.

Ferlito will play George, an NYPD homicide detective and Nancy’s former partner on the force who has an innate ability to put other people at ease. She joins previously cast Anthony Edwards and Feliz Solis.

Can't go wrong with Nancy Drew. This seems like a good take.

Rater and Phelan executive produce with Dan Jinks for CBS Television Studios.
