While trying to navigate the everyday drama of high school, the smart, fearless, 17-year-old Veronica
Mars (Kristen Bell) moonlights as an apprentice private investigator out to solve her wealthy town
of Neptune's toughest mysteries.
Defying her father, Keith Mars (Enrico Colantoni), the disgraced former sheriff turned
private eye, Veronica pursues a late-night case of adultery against billionaire Jake Kane,
only to make an unsettling discovery about her mother (Corinne Bohrer), who abandoned Veronica and Keith a year ago.
Excellent! Veronica bears some similarities to Buffy Summers (the vampire slayer). V is a problem
solver. Also, a hottie who is not one of the cool kids. The main difference is that she
resolves mysteries in a more cerebral, less destructive way. Then again, Veronica is fighting fewer
evil spirits. Probably.
