‘Veronica Mars’ To Be A New Web Series!
Buzzfeed has the story…
The following is an excerpt from The Whole “Veronica Mars” Gang Is Coming Back For A New Web Series
When Play It Again, Dick — a web series revolving around Ryan Hansen’s fan favorite Veronica Mars character, Dick Casablancas — was announced in January 2014, creator Rob Thomas described the project like this: “The web series will have more in common with Party Down tonally, but it will be about Ryan Hansen, or at least a version of Ryan Hansen, deciding to capitalize on the current Veronica Mars heat to get his own series on the air. He’ll try to pull his actor pals into the venture with varying degrees of success.”
In the subsequent seven months, Thomas has been silent on the series. But with filming on the eight-episode series recently completed, BuzzFeed can now reveal the actors who will join Ryan Hansen — who plays Dick Casablancas and a fictionalized version of himself — in the super-meta series.
The Rob Thomas-penned web series revolves around a fictional Veronica Mars spin-off that Hansen has “written” as a star vehicle for himself titled Play It Again, Dick. Like almost everyone involved, Bell plays a slightly skewed version of herself who has — begrudgingly — agreed to reprise her role as the titular sleuth for Hansen’s spin-off.

The following is an excerpt from Kristen Bell, Ryan Hansen return to ‘Veronica Mars’ with a webseries
Titled Play It Again, Dick, the show will feature Ryan Hansen (who appeared in both Veronica Mars and Party Down) trying to rekindle his career by writing a spinoff of the CW cult series and later Kickstarter movie. Hansen will star as himself and reprise his role as resident Neptune bro Dick Casablancas. Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars) and Jason Dohring (Logan Echolls) will also appear as fictionalized versions of themselves and as their characters .
They are joined by a veritable reunion of Veronica Mars cast members, including Enrico Colatoni (Keith Mars), Percy Daggs III (Wallace Fennel), Ken Marino (Vinnie Van Lowe), and Chris Lowell (Piz), who will either appear as themselves, as their characters in Hansen’s imagined spinoff, or as both. There are also two newcomers from Thomas’s new iZombie series: Robert Buckley and Rose McIver, who will fill out Play It Again, Dick‘s complicated universe.
The series will premiere the week of September 15 with episodes released weekly. Each installment will vary in length, but average somewhere between eight and 10 minutes.
