Sarah Shahi Is Nancy Drew In New CBS Detective Series 'Drew'

Sarah Shahi (photosSarah Shahi photos) will play an older Nancy Drew in CBS' detective series based on the popular mystery novels.

Shahi will portray Drew in her 30s as an NYPD detective solving crimes. Vanessa Ferlito will star as Nancy's former NYPD partner, Anthony Edwards as her father and Felix Solis as a lieutenant who often butts heads with her.

The Nancy Drew books originally began with the lead as a 16-year-old. However, she's been since rewritten to be an 18-year-old high school graduate and detective. In the series, she lives in the fictional town of River Heights with her father, attorney Carson Drew, and their housekeeper, Hannah Gruen.

She lost her mother at an early age in the books and you can be sure that will hold true in this reimagined version with likely an ongoing story thread about her death or murder, as is the case with most CBS procedurals.

Shahi most recently appeared on 'Person of Interest'. Her character made a dramatic exit last season which was necessitated by her maternity leave.
