Freddie Prinze Jr. Set to Play Nancy Drew's Dad in CW Series

Freddie Prinze Jr. has joined the cast of the CW’s untitled Nancy Drew pilot!

The 43-year-old actor is set to star opposite Kennedy McMann as Nancy’s father in the classic mystery series.

The series will follow an 18-year-old Nancy Drew and is set in the summer after her high school graduation.

While Nancy thought “she’d be leaving her hometown for college, but when a family tragedy holds her back another year, she finds herself embroiled in a ghostly murder investigation — and along the way, uncovers secrets that run deeper than she ever imagined. When Nancy ends up a suspect in a murder, it rekindles her love for detective work, even though the clues lead her to believe that a long-dead local girl may be the killer.”

Freddie will play Carson Drew, a dynamic attorney who has become estranged from Nancy following the death of his wife and Nancy’s murder investigation reveals unsettling secrets from his past.
