Joss Whedon to produce new series Pippa Smith: Grown-Up Detective

Variety reports that Oscar-nominated writer-producer-director Joss Whedon (Avengers: Age of Ultron, Justice League, The Avengers) is set to executive produce Pippa Smith: Grown Up Detective, a half-hour comedy series currently in development at Freeform.

Pippa Smith: Grown-Up Detective is created by Siobhan Thompson (CollegeHumor Originals, Bad Internet) and Rebecca Drysdale (The Big Gay Sketch Show, Key and Peele, Baskets) and is described as a dark comedy that follows Pippa Smith, a twenty-something who played a former kid sleuth on television as she deals with relationships, addiction, and being too dang old for the detecting game. Each episode, Pippa solves a new case, while unraveling a bigger mystery and attempting to navigate a messy personal life.

Whedon and Drysdale are serving as executive producers alongside Drew Buckley, Jillian Vogel, and Sam Reich executive producing for Big Breakfast, who will produce. Thompson is set to serve as a co-executive producer on the project.

Whedon’s other TV credits include the highly popular genre series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dollhouse, Firefly, Angel, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. His latest big screen screenplay is a currently untitled WWII horror project that was recently announced.

Freeform’s current slate includes the Black-ish spinoff Grown-ish, the mermaid drama Siren, and the Marvel series Cloak & Dagger that is set to premiere this week. Freeform also recently canceled fan-favorite series Shadowhunters after three seasons, while ordering the Pretty Little Liars spinoff The Perfectionists to series.
