The CW greenlights 'TOM SWIFT', their first mystery drama with a poc queer lead.



- Tom Swift is a cute black, gay, inventor and his character will be a spin-off of 'Nancy Drew' (for the 3 people who watch it) played by Tian Richards
- Tian said: “We’re going to dive into so many sectors of identity. We’re going to talk about Blackness — and a different kind of Blackness than we’re used to seeing, which is the Black elite, the 1 percent, the billionaires (lol). We’re also going to talk about a queer boy’s journey into becoming a queer man. Not only self-acceptance, but acceptance as a whole, having the community and people around you."
- The character already appeared on one episode of Nancy Drew:
