The first trailer for the Vertigo comic adaptation iZombie is here. Brought to the CW by executive producers Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero and stars Rose McIver (Power Rangers, Once Upon a Time, Masters of Sex) as Liv. The series follows Liv, a zombie working at a morgue who can grasp the memories of any deceased person after she eats their brain.
The concept is a little different than the book, which managed to grow into something zany and epic thanks to Chris Roberson and Mike Allred. The series is heading in a new and different direction. It’s now more of an undead Veronica Mars, which is far from a bad thing. Roberson himself has taken to twitter to express his fondness for the show. So let’s hope for something that captures that brilliant premise while offering a darkly different take on weekly procedurals.
iZombie will debut on Tuesday, March 17th at 9:00pm.
