Default Cw sets drama based on DC comics' 'iZombie' with Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero

EXCLUSIVE: 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. 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. Thomas and Rugierro, who previously served as an exec producer on Thomas’ series Veronica Mars and Cupid, are executive producing with fellow frequent Thomas collaborators Danielle Stokdyk and Dan Etheridge.



Go CW, since they did such a good job with Arrow I'm game.

CW to announce it's renaming itself to Comics World.

They should, they've invested so heavily into comic series recently.

The concept of this series is at least a new take on zombies and heroes in general. It could be good if they play it with the right mixture of humor and seriousness. My main concern is the name. iZombie? Really?

No interest in the comic, but creator of Veronica Mars? Yes please.

I've never read the comic, but from the wikipedia summary it sounds interesting.

And it will be great to see a female-lead "superhero" (of sorts) TV show, although iZombie is probably closer to Supernatural/Vampire Diaries than Arrow/The Flash.

Sounds like Tru Calling, only with zombies.

I still give it a look though. I love zombies and I love superheroes/comics.

Count me excited. Even though I fell behind reading it I enjoyed the issues I did read. Hope it makes it to series. Plus it has a good creative team behind it.

Never read or heard of the book, but Thomas as the showrunner has me interested.

You should check it out, the Comic was awesome.

Then again, maybe not. It's best to go in with low expectations.

It's disheartening reading the amount of comments online of people saying that they won't watch it unless it's in the DCCU.
