Thanks to the Veronica Mars movie, it looks like creator Rob Thomas is going to be able to launch a digital spin-off series. It was announced by The CW president Mark Pedowitz, and it will premiere on the network's digital arm, CW Seed. At the time of the announcement, Pedwitz said,
“The Veronica Mars movie got it going. Rob Thomas is very excited about doing this at CW Seed… He hasn’t committed to any concept or characters yet.”
Until now… Thomas took to his Twitter and revealed that the series will focus on Ryan Hansen and his Dick Casablancas character.
The CW web series: a comedy featuring @HiRyanHansen attempting to put together a Dick Casablancas spin-off of #VeronicaMars. No date yet.
When asked if the series would be a 'behind the scenes in hollywood' thing? or Ryan Hansen as Dick? Thomas replied with,
Ryan as version of Ryan trying to put together a Dick Casablancas series.
So it's a spin-off about putting together a spin-off? That should be kind of interesting. I guess we'll have to wait and see how it all plays out.
The series will most likely consist of six to eight episodes, with each one running between five and ten minutes. There's no premiere date set yet, but it's expected to hit sometime after the film’s release on March 14th.
