Bouncing off the news that NBC has picked up "Constantine," comes the news that The CW has picked up their own horror show, "iZombie", about the brain-eating coroner who solves crimes. The series will air this fall; the exact date is unknown.
I'm usually rather dubious about any show coming out of The CW, but this one sounds morbid in a pretty fun way. Plus, lead actress Rose McIver is impossibly cute…
Based on the series created by Chris Roberson and Mike Allred, "iZombie" will be executive produced by "Veronica Mars" creator Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero and sees "Once Upon a Time" star Rose McIver in the lead role of Liv. In the series, Liv works in a coroner's office, and in order to maintain her humanity she'll be forced to dine on the brains of the deceased, but in doing so she will absorb their memories and use it to solve their murders, among other crimes.
"iZombie" stars Rose McIver, David Anders, Nora Dunn, Malcolm Goodwin, Alexandra Krosney and Robert Buckley.
