CW Seed, the offshoot of The CW that caters to a digital-only audience, has revealed their slate of upcoming programs. Among the web series they will be presenting is that “Veronica Mars” spinoff fans have been eagerly awaiting.
“Play It Again, Dick” stars Ryan Hansen (“Bad Teacher”) as himself, trying to get a Dick Casablancas show made. After all, who doesn’t want that? In the episodes, which are co-written and executive produced by “Veronica Mars” creator Rob Thomas, Hansen pleads with his former castmates to help him get the show made.
There are five other CW Seed projects in the works. “L.A. Rangers” stars Wilson Bethel (“Hart of Dixie”) and Dugan O’Neal as wannabe filmmakers who work in LA’s Griffith Park. They spend the day ignoring their boring lives, choosing instead to live in movie-versions of their dreams, from western to anime.
“Whose Line Is It Minis” is pretty each to figure out. Mini-episodes of the improv comedy show will feature the cast doing what they do best, in bite-sized chunks.
“The Kelly Cutrone Project” will be a talk show hosted by “America’s Next Top Model” judge Kelly Cutrone. The show will give her the chance to talk fashion, pop culture and more.
Alloy Entertainment, the company behind “Gossip Girl,” “The Vampire Diaries” and “The Originals,” are working on a currently untitled comedy for the Seed. It features two roommates, one of which is dating the other’s newly-single mom. That should be interesting.
Finally, “The Real Backpackers” will be the reality show companion of The CW’s upcoming “Backpackers.” The web series will travel to the actual locations of the show around Europe and Canada, finding the best places for backpackers to visit for food, drink and recreational purposes.
Episodes of “L.A. Rangers” and “Whose Line Is It Minis” are already available on CW Seed, with the rest to come.
