CW Seed, the digital programming arm of The CW Network, has agreed to air a spinoff series based on the cult TV show (and upcoming movie) “Veronica Mars.”
The news was announced this afternoon in advance of CW president Mark Pedowitz’s session at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour. No other details were provided, except that “Veronica Mars” creator Rob Thomas will be involved in the online project. During his panel, Pedowitz said Thomas “is very excited about” the spinoff series, and will focus on it once he completes work on the “Veronica Mars” movie, which will premiere in select theatres nationwide on March 14, 2014.
