Back in November we learned that The CW was developing "iZombie," based on the Vertigo comic characters created by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred, with VERONICA MARS duo Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero serving as executive producers, and now The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that the CW has picked up the pilot for "iZombie", along with the long-rumored "Supernatural" spin-off titled "Supernatural: Tribes".
"iZombie" is described as...
...a supernatural crime procedural that centers on a medical-student-turned-zombie who takes a job in the coroner's office in order to gain access to the brains she must reluctantly eat to maintain her humanity. However, with every brain she eats, she inherits the corpse's memories. With the help of her medical examiner boss and a police detective, she solves homicide cases in order to quiet the disturbing voices in her head.
"Supernatural: Tribes" will explore "the clashing hunter and monster cultures of Chicago" and hails from "Supernatural"'s writer Andrew Dabb, who will exec produce alongside Eric Kripke, Robert Singer, showrunner Jeremy Carver and McG. Singer will direct the Warner Bros. Television entry.
