Exclusive: Veronica Mars Boss Now an ABC Big Shot

ABC's buzz-challenged new drama Big Shots just got tossed a life preserver. Sources confirm that Rob Thomas — he of all things wonderful and Veronica Marsy — has landed at one of my least favorite fall offerings, Big Shots, as a consulting producer. The news comes a week after Thomas vacated his post as show-runner of the Alphabet net's midseason comedy Miss/Guided due to creative differences. Thomas will be in familiar company at Big Shots: Former Mars producers Danielle Stokdyk and Jennifer Gwartz were recently named exec producers.Bottom line: If anything can make this series start sucking less, it's these three.
