'Veronica Mars' Spin-Off In The Works, Riding Coattails Of Kickstarter Movie
Veronica Mars first got a second life after the series launched a successful Kickstarter campaign to get a feature film made. Now, the show about a young private investigator is set to get a digital series spin-off.
'Veronica Mars' Web Series Spin-Off
Series creator Rob Thomas will be heading the new project alongside CW Digital, according to Variety. As of yet, it’s unknown whether the batch of webisodes will hit the internet before or after the Veronica Mars movie starring Kristen Bell debuts Mar. 14.
The web series, which will reportedly be comprised of six to eight 10-minutes episodes, will star Ryan Hansen as himself, working to make a Veronica Mars spinoff centered on Dick Casablancas.

CW president Mark Pedowitz talked about the spinoff series at the Television Critics Association event on Wednesday. “Rob and I spoke last night. He's very excited about doing this for CW Seed. It may not appear before the film comes out,” Pedowitz said. “He told me about his schedule, and I said, 'We'll take it whenever you're ready.”
"I have great faith in Rob that he will deliver something fantastic and should it ever turn into a TV series again, hopefully he'll think about us," the CW president added.
Thomas has his hands full with Veronica Mars projects. In addition to the web series and feature film, he’s started writing a book series starring the female sleuth.
