What’s on TV Wednesday: ‘Nancy Drew’ and ‘Goliath’


NANCY DREW 9 p.m. on the CW. Sex, darkness and a dash of the supernatural are added to the Nancy Drew formula here, in a series that reimagines that classic young sleuth for a contemporary audience. The hourlong drama raises Drew’s age to 18, and it relocates the action to Maine. The show also gives Drew (played by Kennedy McMann) a tough back story: In this show, she has a strained relationship with her father, and her mother has recently died. There are also ghosts, an element that factors into the show’s first major case, which involves the murder of a socialite. “At the core is the idea of a young woman who believes in righting wrongs and finding the truth,” Stephanie Savage, a creator of the series, said in a recent interview with The New York Times.

FAMILY TIME 9 p.m. on Bounce TV. Six seasons have gone by since this sitcom introduced Anthony Stallworth (Omar Gooding) and Lisa Calloway-Stallworth (Angell Conwell), a married couple who started off the series by winning the lottery and relocating to the suburbs. The seventh season sees the couple transitioning into empty nesters. That lifestyle should support more quips among their fellow adults, like Cheryl (Shanti Lowry), whom, in Wednesday’s season premiere episode, explains a new home “security system” to Lisa. “Basically, it’s just a recording of a couple arguing,” she says. “That way it always sounds like there’s someone bickering at home.”
