Variety Breakthrough Awards Veronica Mars

In anticipation of the “Veronica Mars” movie release, the CW announced today that the cult show will have an accompanying digital series spinoff. CW Digital is overseeing the project and series creator Rob Thomas in attached.

It’s unclear if the project will roll out before the film’s March 14 release date. As the deal has just finished, the network did not have any other details available.

The movie, which was famously made with the assistance of online backing through a Kickstarter campaign, will premiere at the South by Southwest film festival. Recently, Thomas told the crowd at Variety’s Breakthrough of the Year Awards at CES in Las Vegas that “getting the film funded was nothing more than a miracle.”
