Nancy Drew is a teenage amateur detective solving mysteries in her small town of River Heights. Nancy is often assisted on her investigations by the "Drew Crew", typically her two best friends Bess Marvin and George Fayne, and on occasion her boyfriend Ned Nickerson.
The Nancy Drew series began with the Nancy Drew Mystery Stories books, with the first story The Secret of the Old Clock published on April 28, 1930. The books are credited to writer Carolyn Keene, which is a pseudonym used for the various authors. The series inspires various continuations and adaptations to this day, with the stories and characters being updated for contemporary times.
The new Tom Swift TV series is currently airing Tuesday nights at 9pm on The CW. The series is a spin-off of Nancy Drew and the lead character Tom was introduced in the Nancy Drew episode The Celestial Visitor.
As an exceptionally brilliant inventor with unlimited resources and unimaginable wealth, the devilishly charming Tom Swift is a man who many men would kill to be, or be with – a man with the world in the palm of his hand. But that world gets shaken to its core after the shocking disappearance of his father, thrusting Tom into a breathtaking adventure full of mysterious conspiracies and unexplained phenomena.
