We finally get to see what is in store for the The CW’s latest DC Comic book project titled “iZombie”. At first glance the promo for the brain devouring Liv is as cheesy as expected but there is a lot of fun to be had still. The show which stars Rose McIver as Liv comes from Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas and “Mars” writer/producer, Diane Ruggiero. We were rather sceptical about the final product but it looks like CW managed to capture the quirkiness that is so well illustrated in the comic books.
In the first promo we see Liv desperately trying to blend in so her friends, family and colleagues won’t find out that she is a zombie. Check out the pilot episode that kicks off on Tuesday, March 17th at 9pm on The CW. McIver is joined by Malcolm Goodwin, Rahul Kohli, Robert Buckley and David Anders.
“Rose McIver (“Masters of Sex,” “Once Upon a Time”) stars as Olivia “Liv” Moore, a rosy-cheeked, disciplined, over-achieving medical resident who had her life path completely mapped out… until the night she attended a party that unexpectedly turned into a zombie feeding frenzy. As one of the newly undead, Liv has devised a way to resist her baser urges to devour fresh human brains – she’s taken a job in the Seattle coroner’s office. In this appropriately dead-end job, she can secretly snack on the brains of the many Jane and John Doe corpses that make a final stop in the morgue. Liv remains resigned to an eternity without hope or purpose, until she realizes that with every brain she consumes, she retains a portion of that person’s memories, and she begins to experience visions from the point of view of the murder victims. It’s not the same as being alive again, but at least she can find purpose in her undead existence by helping to solve the murders of those who are indeed fully dead.”
