CBS, Saturn Partner on Web Series Targeting Women

CBS has partnered with Saturn to launch Novel Adventures, an original branded entertainment series on the Web centered around four women who participate in a book club.

The show, which stars former Melrose Place regular Daphne Zuniga, will premiere on Nov. 3. Each of the eight planned episodes will first be exclusively available on, and for 48 hours, after which they will be rolled out across the CBS Audience Network, which includes AOL, Yahoo, Veoh and other sites.

For example, in the premiere episode the group takes a deep sea fishing trip after reading Ernest Hemingway
