Last year, Veronica Mars was resurrected via crowdfunding, and it broke the record for the most money raised on Kickstarter to make a movie, a whopping $5.7 million. Mars creator Rob Thomas showed great fiscal responsibility with the money, making the Mars movie on a tight budget and schedule, and it will also be available on VOD.
Now if you’re a fan of Kristen Bell, there’s even more reason to rejoice. The show Heroes, which starred Bell, Zachary Quinto, and Hayden Panettiere, will be returning, this time as a mini-series. As the Hollywood Reporter tells us, the mini-series will be called Heroes Reborn, and NBC has made a deal for a 13-episode min-series that will run in 2015.
As Jennifer Salke, the president of NBC Entertainment, said in a statement, “The enormous impact Heroes had on the television landscape when it first launched in 2006 was eye-opening. Shows with that kind of resonance don’t come around often, and we thought it was time for another installment.”
