CAPRA  DOHRINGWell that didn’t remain a secret for long.

Mere hours after CW boss Mark Pedowitz announced (mostly vague) plans for a Veronica Mars web-based spin-off series, franchise boss Rob Thomas has revealed which character will headline the digital offshoot.

“It’s a comedy featuring Ryan Hansen attempting to put together a Dick Casablancas spin-off of Veronica Mars,” Thomas shared on Twitter late Wednesday.
