Veronica Mars creator gets new gig

  • 15comments

Veronica Mars may have just recently been officially canceled, but it didn't take long for its creator to find another place of employment.

Rob Thomas has taken on the role of executive producer for ABC's new comedy Miss/Guided, says E! Online's Kristin Veitch. Thomas allegedly confirmed the move to Veitch yesterday, just one day after he confirmed that Veronica Mars was officially canceled.

"I'm the new show runner on Miss/Guided, the Judy Greer half-hour mid-season for ABC," Thomas reportedly told Veitch. "It was created by a talented first-year Office writer named Caroline Williams."

Miss/Guided was officially picked up by ABC at the network's upfronts last month and is expected to debut sometime in 2008. The show follows a high-school guidance counselor who works at the school she once attended. Greer, who played the bosom-exposing secretary Kitty Sanchez on Arrested Development, stars as the lead character Becky.
