After wrapping his fan-funded “Veronica Mars” movie, Rob Thomas is reuniting with the film’s co-writer Diane Ruggiero for a zombie drama series project based a DC property. Deadline reports that the CW has put in development “iZombie”, which Thomas and Ruggiero will write based on the characters created by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred and published by DC Comics’ Vertigo imprint.

“iZombie”, from Warner Bros TV and Rob Thomas Prods, “is a supernatural crime procedural that centers on a med student-turned-zombie who takes a job in the coroner’s office to gain access to the brains she must reluctantly eat to maintain her humanity. But with each brain she consumes, she inherits the corpse’s memories, and 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.

    Warm Bodies meets Tru Calling?

    Maybe this will fill the hole in my heart that the cancellation of Tru Calling left.

    This announcement is interesting because I just started rereading the series the night before last. I was missing the 13th issue and finally got it in the mail and started the whole thing over. I love Mike Allred’s art but don’t know if I’m sold on the writer (Chris Roberson I think). The idea of a show is interesting, but I’m not sure if I’ll like it much or not. Maybe I”ll enjoy the comic the more I read it.

    They’ll have to change the title or Apple will sue…
