Participant Media-owned Pivot – the TV network targeting the millenial (age 18-34) generation – has acquired all episodes of Fox’s Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Warner Bros’ Veronica Mars. The series will be joining the programming roster as a Buffy and Veronica Power Hours block, Pivot said today, featuring back-to-back episodes Mondays through Fridays at 10 PM and 11 PM beginning January 13.
Buffy The Vampire Slayer, which ran for seven seasons from 1997-2003, stars Sarah Michelle Gellar as Buffy. The series was created by Joss Whedon, under Mutant Enemy Productions, and later with co-executive producers Jane Espenson, David Fury, David Greenwalt, Doug Petrie, Marti Noxon and David Solomon. Veronica Mars, which aired from 2004-2007, stars Kristen Bell as a student who progresses from high school to college while moonlighting as a private investigator under the tutelage of her detective father. The Kickstarter campaign for the Veronica Mars movie raised $5.5 million from more than 90,000 contributors. The series was created by screenwriter Rob Thomas; produced by Warner Bros. Television, Silver Pictures Television, Stu Segall Productions and Rob Thomas Productions.
