Mystery series “Veronica Mars” is moving away from television after The CW network, which aired the show from 2004 to 2007 on the small screen, closed a deal for the show's spin-off onto its digital platform, CW Seed.
The CW President Mark Pedowitz reportedly announced at the Television Critics Association winter press tour on Wednesday about the new venture, stating: "Rob and I spoke last night, he's very excited he's doing it for CW seed. It may not appear before the movie comes out. He's very busy, but we're very excited. I don't have a lot of details yet."
"Having the opportunity to do anything with Veronica Mars and Thomas - who I'm a fan of and worked with at ABC Studios - is just great," Pedowitz said, when he was asked if the digital series would turn into a TV series. "I have great faith in Rob that he'll deliver something fantastic. Should it ever turn into a TV series again, hopefully he'll think about it."
Creator Rob Thomas also took to Twitter to post about the digital series: “The CW web series: a comedy featuring @HiRyanHansen attempting to put together a Dick Casablancas spin-off of #VeronicaMars. No date yet.”
According to reports, Pedowitz said that nothing was yet confirmed but the digital series will likely consist of six to eight 10-minute segments.
The “Veronica Mars” movie is due to release on March 14. Thomas along with star Kristen Bell had launched a crowd-funding campaign to bring the show to the cinemas and raised $5.7 million in a span of 30 days.
