Looks like we’ve got a show with brains…
Yes the genius mind of Rob Thomas, who brought us the little slice of perfection that was neo-noir detective drama Veronica Mars
, is back to his old bag of tricks with iZombie
, airing soon on the CW.
Based on the Vertigo comic, iZombie
follows Liv, a college student with a touch of deadness. Liv catches the Zombie virus and gets a job in the morgue to hide from her friends and feast on the formerly living.
However, this is where it gets even more intriguing, as Liv absorbs the memories of the brains she devours, so—under the guise of a “psychic”—she works with police to help solve murders, while trying not to have anybody solve her own mystery: her inherent deadness.
Starring Rose McIver, from Once Upon and Time
and Masters of Sex
fame is playing the lead, we’re sure to be charmed by her and the Rob Thomas snark-with-heart we all know and love.
snark and I think that, ding ding ding, we have a winner.
And with recent success stories like Agent Carter
and Jane the Virgin,
hopefully networks are starting to realize we love a good, well-rounded lady who is a real character and can kick ass when needed.
Check out the trailer below, and let us know what you think, Popwrappers.
Isn’t it to die for?
