Joss Whedon has his next TV venture lined up. Whedon is set to executive produce Pippa Smith: Grown-Up Detective for Freeform, according to a new report from Variety. Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Avengers) will executive produce alongside co-creator Rebecca Drysdale, Drew Buckley, Jillian Vogel, and Sam Reich.

Pippa Smith: Grown-Up Detective is created by Siobhan Thompson and Drysdale, 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.

Thompson is set to serve as a co-executive producer on the series, which joins Freeform’s slate including Grown-ish, Siren, and Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger.
