‘Veronica Mars’ Gets Digital Spin-Off Series
During press tour, the CW revealed that the beloved Kristen Bell-vehicle is getting a spin-off — online.
“Rob [Thomas] and I talked last night, and [the show] might not appear until the movie comes out,” President of the CW Mark Pedowitz explained. “But Rob is very excited to do something with the CWC.”
Pedowitz, who said the deal with Thomas came around “by happenstance” said, “We heard from one of his digital people first,” then said the deal was finally set when “I picked up the phone and told him, we’ll take it whenever you’re ready. He likes the quality of the [programming here].”
Obviously, Thomas is busy with the feature film of Veronica Mars, in addition to other projects, so it may be a while before we — or anybody — gets details on what the spin-off will be like. “We talked a little bit, but he’s not locked in [to ideas],” Pedowitz shrugged. “He talked about potential people being involved, but he didn’t commit to anybody.”
Details are scarce at this moment, but I have faith in Rob Thomas for being able to create something amazing.
