Sources are confirming that ex "Veronica Mars" creator Rob Thomas has booked a gig as consulting producer on ABC's new fall series "Big Shots." Just recently Thomas left ABC's midseason comedy "Miss Guided" for creative reasons. The "Big Shots" pilot has taken a beating from the press and they just started working on the season. The news couldn't come at a better time for the series as they land a proven producer who can offer input to hopefully right the creative direction. Perhaps "Big Shots" will be this years "Brothers & Sisters"? A pilot pretty much hated by the press, but a series that managed to turn itself around creatively prior to season launch.
