Little Monk web series to explore big Monk's problems

Monk's mental problems will be explored in the web series, Little Monk.With USA Network's Monk entering its final season, this is as good a time as any to explore how its title character developed his obsessions and ticks.

According to a network press release, USA Network and Sleep Inn Hotels (No, I don't get the connection, either...) teamed up to launch USA's first live-action original web series on usanetwork.com, Little Monk.

The web series seeks to explore the origins of the anal-retentive and obsessive Monk's chronic conditions.

It's all intended to celebrate the eighth and final season of Monk, which kicked off on USA last Friday. Little Monk will debut during a new episode of its parent show Friday, August 21, with a two-minute peek to drive viewers online for the conclusion.

As USA puts it: "Fans of USA's hit series will simultaneously get to 'discover the details' of Monk's childhood neurosis while they discover the many consistent features offered by Sleep Inn hotels."

Now it sounds like a commercial, but let's hope there's enough interesting Monk backstory included so fans don't go insane. Or do Sleep Inn Hotels come with anti-angry mob features?
