CW Seed, the digital-only studio of The CW, said today it has set summer premieres for LA Rangers, created by and starring Hart Of Dixie star Wilson Bethel, and webisodes of the network’s improv show Whose Line Is It Anyway? Four more original series have landed summer bows: an untitled comedy from Alloy Entertainment, previously announced fashion series The Kelly Cutrone Project; The Real Backpackers, a companion to the broadcast series Backpackers; and Veronica Mars spinoff Play It Again, Dick. The new series will join new episodes of returning original series Husbands, The P.E.T. Squad Files, Very Mallory and CelebTV On The CW. Here are descriptions of the new shows:
CW Seed’s Backpackers is making the jump from online to primetime, with 10 original half-hour episodes set to premiere this summer on the CW. In the digital series Backpackers, best friends Ryan (Noah Reid) and Brandon (Dillon Casey) race across Europe in search of Ryan’s missing bride-to-be, while also struggling with the eternal twenty-something question of what to do with their lives. The first four episodes will contain material previously released as digital episodes on CW Seed. The last six episodes specifically will be written and produced for the network. A premiere date and time will be announced later.
