Actress Kennedy McMann says her show “Nancy Drew” falls in a niche, which comes with a mix of mystery, drama and comedy.
“I would say the genre of the show falls in a special niche. I mean, it’s a mystery, it’s a drama, but there’s a lot of light comedy as well. But then there are elements where the thriller stuff comes into play, which I think will be really exciting for audiences,” McMann said.
“Nancy Drew” is a modern re-imagining of the classic teen novels featuring new mysteries and supernatural hauntings. It is about Nancy Drew, who finds herself involved in a mystery when she and her friends are also involved in a murder case.
Asked why the audience loves the re-imagining of “Nancy Drew”, McMann replied: “I think the history that Nancy Drew has as a character is extraordinary, and she has served as a heroine for generations and generations. I think that this is a modern Nancy. She is relatable. She’s someone that I think that the audience can look up to and relate to the experiences and the struggles that she has. I think that’s what will bring people to love the show.”
“Not only is it funny, but there’s also a mystery, a lot of mystery I don’t even know the answer to. I think that will have people coming back. I mean, at the end of the day, it’s a mystery and there’s a cool supernatural element, but it’s very human. The relationships are human. That’s what I think is so beautiful about not depicting Nancy as this perfect, completely put-together robot girl,” she added, about the Zee Cafe show.
