Rob Thomas is the lead singer of Matchbox 20, and a creator of excellent and little-watched television shows. He created Cupid for ABC and Veronica Mars for
UPN The CW. In his spare time, he resides on secluded Ratsawgod Island in the South Pacific with his gorilla valet Chalmsworth, and fights crime as the leader of the world-famous, jet-setting supersquad Thomas Force Five.
Following the cancellation of Veronica Mars in May 2007, an unbowed Thomas renewed his determination to get another outstanding, unseen, and brutally cancelled show on the air, lest Tim Minear further widen his lead in that particular department.
