La-rangers-cw-seed

The CW‘s two newest originals have arrived. The TV network has released Wilson Bethel‘s L.A. Rangers and a web companion to Whose Line Is It Anyway? on its digital distribution platform, CW Seed.

L.A. Rangers stars Bethel (best known for his role on The CW’s Hart of Dixie) and Dugan O’Neal as a pair of park rangers who frequently day dream about starring in their favorite films. It’s Bethel’s second starring role on CW Seed–following 2012’s Stupid Hype–and five of its ten episodes have been released at once. The first one includes homages to Westerns and The Matrix.

Alongside L.A. Rangers, CW Seed is also now the home of Whose Line Is It Minis, which features short clips from the revived version of Whose Line Is It Anyway? Each Minis episode runs for just a minute or two and features a few improv scenes from the show’s cast. Bringing Whose Line to a digital platform is a smart decision, since it was the treasure trove of unlicensed clips on YouTube that elevated the original show to cult status and caused fans to beg for its return.

Beyond its two newest releases, the CW Seed will also soon house a number of exciting projects. The platform’s Veronica Mars spin-off now has a name; it’s called Play It Again, Dick and will debut in the summer. Joining it will be a comedy from Alloy Entertainment and a previously announced talk show starring America’s Next Top Model judge Kelly Cutrone. Until those series arrive, CW fans will have to hold themselves over with film parodies and improv comedy clips.
