New CW Nancy Drew Casts Original Nancy Drew: Critical Linking, April 9, 2019

This is a neat casting — the CW Nancy Drew pilot is giving a nod to the TV history of the iconic character by recruiting Pamela Sue Martin. Martin, who will guest star in the pilot, played the brilliant teen sleuth in the first (and most successful to date) TV series adaptation of the Nancy Drew books, The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries, which ran from 1977 to 1979 on ABC. She will appear alongside newcomer Kennedy McMann who is taking on the mantle of playing the amateur detective.

I love this so hard.

When state or civil authorities blacklist books, the act is correctly labeled censorship. But what is the word when parent corporations act out political or ideological dissatisfaction by ordering their subsidiaries to snuff out information in the form of books, magazines, newspapers, radio, television, movies? There isn’t a word or phrase that fully captures this form of censorship, at least not a negative phrase.

An interesting read.

This sounds amazing and I want it now!
