Rob Thomas takes over Big Shots

Great news! You might recall that Rob Thomas, creator of Veronica Mars, was on board to run ABC’s Miss/Guided, starring Judy Greer. Then he jumped ship, citing “creative differences.” Makes sense, considering that Miss/Guided sounds like a broad Ugly Betty-ish comedy, and Veronica Mars was dark and snarky. Anyway, ABC wisely offered him the showrunning gig on Big Shots, otherwise known as Michael Vartan’s Glorious Return to Series Television. Now, I’m going to watch this show no matter what, but TV Guide’s Michael Ausiello has hinted that the pilot sucks. Sounds like the show needs some new creative guidance, and there’s just nobody better than Rob Thomas at making things awesome.

Interviews with the cast of Big Shots, including my beloved Vartan, are viewable here and downloadable here.
