"We're making the show for The CW and that audience," said executive producer Stephanie Savage at the TV press tour. "The little ones know that this show isn't for them and they are going to have to wait until they are older. The kids today are very comfortable understanding that there are multiple iterations. You can read the book. You can watch a DVD. You can watch a movie. There's going to be different actors playing the characters, and what they love is the world of the story and the core character of Nancy Drew and the traits that she embodies of being smart, brave, and curious, and wanting to set the world right by figuring out what went wrong." ALSO: Star Kennedy McMann said there's "much less taboo in showing women how they actually are" these days.
