After 'Nancy Drew', CBS to give a modern reboot to Agatha Christie's 'Miss Marple' series

Los Angeles: Agatha Christie's Miss Marple could be getting a modern reboot courtesy of CBS.

'Spooks' creator David Wolstencroft is teaming with the Tiffany Network to tell the story of a young Marple, a character traditionally portrayed as elderly, reported Deadline.

Marple also moves its setting to a small California town, where the sleuth gives up her job running a book store to solve local mysteries.

The Agatha Christie estate is involved in this modern retelling of the Marple mythos.
This new update echoes CBS's 'Elementary', the long-running drama which moved Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes from London to New York City.

CBS is also working on a new Nancy Drew drama series, which would follow the famous kid detective during her adult years.
