Diane Ruggiero, executive producer of The CW's mystery-drama Veronica Mars, will create a new one-hour show for the network. The action/comedy is being described as "Sex and the City meets Batman," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The untitled show follows two young women who team up to fight crime. The girls are endowed with superpowers that are only active when the two are together, a la DC Comics' The Wonder Twins.

Veronica Mars is in its third season. The series, which received only a 13-episode order from the network, is holding steady in the ratings.

Over the summer, Mars creator Rob Thomas said he was "acting like a man who got a full season."
