Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas announced today that the eight-episode, weekly web series, Play It Again, Dick, debuts September 16 on the CW Seed.

The web series centers on actor Ryan Hansen trying to get the CW Television Network to greenlight a Veronica Mars spinoff show about his character, Dick Casablancas, as a motorcycle-riding, lady-killer P. I.

Ryan says in his pitch to the CW: "It's like a Veronica Mars that isn't afraid of sex. Rob always called me the dessert of the show. Why not a show that's all dessert? We drop all the who-gives-a-damn high-school-is-a-metaphor-for-something-or-other and just give the people what they want: Dick!"

Thomas promises Veronica Mars actors will appear in the web series as skewed versions of themselves.

CMG Short Film Festival 2014

Love short film festivals? Love knowing a big chunk of your ticket price is benefiting the AIDS Walk Los Angeles?

Then, clearly, the CMG Short Film Festival is perfect for you!

The CMG (California Men's Gatherings) Short Film Festival is four programs of LGBTQ films shown Saturday and Sunday, September 20 and 21, at 4:00 pm and 8:00 pm.

The Festival is at the West Hollywood City Council Chambers, which is located at 625 San Vicente Boulevard in West Hollywood. (Ticket holders enjoy validated FREE PARKING at the Festival.)

Each program costs $10.00.

No film repeats in a second program, so when you purchase a festival pass at $35.00 for all four programs, you won't see the same film twice.

Be sure to jump to the Festival's site to read all about the films being shown.

Tell your friends! Rack up mega-bonus karma points by enjoying a festival, that is an all-proceeds benefit for AIDS Walk Los Angeles (and has been for its entire existence.)

The impressive group of sponsors include The Abbey Food & Bar and CINEMAGIC.
