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.
