The 'Nancy Drew' Pilot Was 'Too Female' for CBS? Twitter Reacts

16 May 2016 6:20 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Girls have cooties anyway, right? According to Deadline, CBS decided to pass on the "Nancy Drew" pilot starring Sarah Shahi ("Person of Interest"), because the wrong half of the population was into it. Here's how Deadline's Nellie Andreeva described the rejection:

"'Drew' is not going forward at CBS but is being shopped to other outlets by CBS TV Studios. I hear the pilot tested well but skewed too female for CBS' schedule. In the end of the day, I hear the network had no 8 Pm or 9 Pm slot available.

Written/executive produced by [Joan] Rater and [Tony] Phelan, 'Drew' stars Sarah Shahi as Nancy — now in her 30s — 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. Anthony Edwards, Felix Solis and Rob McClure co-star in the project, also executive produced by Dan Jinks. »

Sarah Shahi to Star in Nancy Drew CBS Pilot ‘Drew’

29 February 2016 12:45 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS has found their Nancy Drew in Sarah Shahi, who will play the titular role in “Drew,” the network’s modernized spin on the classic detective character, Variety has learned.

Since ordering the pilot, CBS has been very vocal about wanting to cast a diverse actress in the lead role, with network president Glenn Geller saying the star would not be Caucasian and the search would be open to all other ethnicities. Born in Texas, Shahi is from Iranian, Persian and Spanish ancestry.

Titled “Drew,” the potential series is described as a contemporary take on the character from the iconic Nancy Drew book series. The pilot will center around a 30-something who is a more mature version of Nancy than the one in the popular novels. Nancy is now 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. »

Sundance Film Review: Ellen Page in ‘Tallulah’

23 January 2016 5:03 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ellen Page lands her best starring vehicle since “Juno” in “Tallulah,” a very different story of a young woman coming to terms with the idea of being a mother. The feature-length scripting-directing debut of “Orange Is the New Black” staff writer Sian Heder offers juicy roles not only to Page but also to Allison Janney and Tammy Blanchard, in a strong showcase of female talent both behind and in front of the camera. Netflix acquired Svod rights prior to the pic’s premiere in competition at Sundance, but Heder’s compassionate, audience-friendly dramedy deserves a shot in theaters, too.

Vagabond Tallulah (Page) lives out of her van and drifts from city to city with no ties to anyone or anything, except her boyfriend, Nico (Evan Jonigkeit), and that’s just the way she likes it. When Nico surprises her one night by suggesting they go back to his hometown in »
