CW SEED DEBUTS "LA RANGERS" AND "WHOSE LINE IS IT MINIS"

CW Seed to Launch a Slate of Eight Additional Original Series Later This Summer

New Digital Series "Play it Again, Dick," "The Real Backpackers," and "The Kelly Cutrone Project" to Premiere This Summer on CW Seed

"Husbands," "The P.E.T. Squad Files, "Very Mallory" and "CelebTV" to Return With All New Episodes

May 5, 2014 (Burbank, CA) - CW Seed, the digital-only studio of The CW Television Network, has launched L.A. RANGERS, a new digital series created by and starring HART OF DIXIE star Wilson Bethel, and WHOSE LINE IS IT MINIS, exclusive mini webisodes of the hit improv comedy WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY?.

CW Seed also announced four new digital series will premiere exclusively on the platform later this summer, including the Veronica Mars spin-off PLAY IT AGAIN, DICK, and a new untitled comedy from Alloy Entertainment; and the previously announced THE KELLY CUTRONE PROJECT, hosted by fashion maven and AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL judge Kelly Cutrone, and THE REAL BACKPACKERS.

HUSBANDS, THE P.E.T. SQUAD FILES, VERY MALLORY, and CELEBTV ON THE CWwill also return to CW Seed with all new episodes this summer.

L.A. RANGERS stars Bethel ("Hart of Dixie," "Stupid Hype") and his partner, director Dugan O'Neal, as two naïve, borderline delusional, wannabe filmmakers working as park rangers in LA's Griffith Park. Each episode follows them as they are pulled from their regular, boring lives, into the epic movie-versions of their dreams. From western to sci-fi, anime to action, the cinematic possibilities are as endless, limited by the scope of their own creativity...and the constraints of public servitude. Park hours: sun-up to sundown. L.A. RANGERS was written and produced by Bethel and O'Neal.

CW Seed is also debuting WHOSE LINE IS IT MINIS, special mini-episodes of the hit improv comedy CW Network series WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY?, starring Wayne Brady, Colin Mochrie and Ryan Stiles, and hosted by Aisha Tyler, packing 30 minutes of funny into two-minute webisodes, including exclusive bloopers and outtakes.

CW Seed will also launch four original digital series later this summer: PLAY IT AGAIN, DICK, a spin-off of "Veronica Mars," co-written and produced by Rob Thomas, starring Ryan Hansen; the untitled Alloy project; and the previously announced THE KELLY CUTRONE PROJECT and THE REAL BACKPACKERS.

PLAY IT AGAIN, DICK stars Ryan Hansen as himself, as he begs, cajoles, and pleads with his former "Veronica Mars" castmates and friends to help him get his character, Dick Casablancas, his own spin-off show. PLAY IT AGAIN, DICK is co-written and executive produced by Rob Thomas, the creator and executive producer of "Veronica Mars," and will include guest appearances by some of Hansen's fellow "Veronica Mars" stars.

From Alloy Entertainment, the creators of The CW Network hits Gossip Girl, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, THE ORIGINALS and THE 100, comes a new digital comedy series (title TBA). Things get complicated for two best friends and roommates when one of them starts dating the other's recently single mom. The series is written by Richard Keith & Erin Cardillo. Executive Producers are Alloy Entertainment's Leslie Morgenstein, and Tripp Reed.

THE KELLY CUTRONE PROJECT is a fast-paced, one-of-its-kind digital talk show about everything from fashion, to pop culture, to things your mother never wanted to tell you, hosted by public relations maven, New York Times-bestselling author and AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL judge Kelly Cutrone. THE KELLY CUTRONE PROJECT is hosted and executive produced by Kelly Cutrone, with executive producers Liz Gateley and Tony DiSanto, in association with DiGa Productions.

Corresponding with the BACKPACKERS series premiere on-air, CW Seed will launch THE REAL BACKPACKERS as a corresponding digital reality series this summer. Guide Annie Unnold will travel to the same locations as her fictional BACKPACKERS counterparts, going behind the scenes and beyond the set to find the best real-life places to eat, drink and party - first in Europe and then in Canada.

CW Seed will also launch all-new seasons of the award-winning HUSBANDS, as well as THE P.E.T. SQUAD FILES, VERY MALLORY and CELEBTV ON THE CW.

The critically-acclaimed comedy HUSBANDS is the story of tabloid darling Cheeks (Brad Bell) and star athlete Brady (Sean Hemeon), who accidentally got married after a drunken night in Vegas but decided to stick it out to support marriage equality. After re-doing their "I Dos" last season, now they're building their lives together like any other newlyweds - one mini-catastrophe at a time. HUSBANDS is created and executive produced by Brad Bell and Jane Espenson ("Once Upon a Time," "Buffy the Vampire Slayer").

THE P.E.T. SQUAD FILES, created by and starring John Dale and Michael Hobert, follows the misadventures of a ragtag group of ex-community college students, in search of paranormal and extraterrestrial activity. Led by Spencer (Dale) and Courtney (Hobert), the P.E.T. Squad is filming their forays into the world of ghost-hunting, in the hopes of one day landing their own reality TV series. But while Courtney is dead serious in his hunt for the undead, Spencer is only seriously dying to be famous. THE P.E.T. SQUAD FILES is from executive producers Russ Cundiff, Milo Ventimiglia, John Dale and Michael Hobert.

VERY MALLORY, formerly titled GALLERY MALLORY, is an animated comedy starring the over-educated and bitterly under-employed Mallory, a stylish, acerbic twenty-something doing the bare minimum - working at a Soho art gallery - and the real-life celebrities she encounters. This season, Mallory meets her nemesis - an equally disdainful, bored and fashionable manager of a rival gallery - while nursing a crush on a brooding, up-and-coming artist. VERY MALLORY is executive produced by Brad Roth and Mark Feldstein of Stun Creative, an LA-based advertising agency/production company whose previous digital credits include "The Single Life" (Conde Nast/Glamour.com), "Jen & Barb Mom Life" (Specific Media), "The Writers Room" (Crackle/Sony) and "Obamourage" (Atom). Roth and Feldstein also won the 2013 Webby for Best Writing for their digital series, "Presidential Clippings."

CELEBTV ON THE CW is a daily short-form entertainment series that gives fans the inside scoop on their favorite CW shows and their stars. From the latest in casting and storyline news, to what the actors are up to off-screen - whether red carpet appearances, new projects or magazine cover shoots. CELEBTV ON THE CW is hosted by Kelli Zink.
