First Trailer for Rob Thomas' New CW Series iZOMBIE
Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas is back with a new show on The CW. iZombie is a witty, original take on the zombie psychic detective genre, and the first trailer for the series has just been unveiled.
To me, this looks a little like a mixture of Tru Calling and Veronica Mars, and with Thomas leading the charge as the executive producer, you can definitely feel that Mars vibe coming from this show. For fans who were disappointed with last year's much-hyped Veronica Mars film, this could be a cool way to recapture some of what we loved about Thomas' earlier series, but wrapped up and displayed in a new package.
Rose McIver (“Masters of Sex,” “Once Upon a Time”) stars as Olivia “Liv” Moore, a rosy-cheeked, disciplined, over-achieving medical resident who had her life path completely mapped out… until the night she attended a party that unexpectedly turned into a zombie feeding frenzy. As one of the newly undead, Liv has devised a way to resist her baser urges to devour fresh human brains – she’s taken a job in the Seattle coroner’s office. In this appropriately dead-end job, she can secretly snack on the brains of the many Jane and John Doe corpses that make a final stop in the morgue. Liv remains resigned to an eternity without hope or purpose, until she realizes that with every brain she consumes, she retains a portion of that person’s memories, and she begins to experience visions from the point of view of the murder victims. It’s not the same as being alive again, but at least she can find purpose in her undead existence by helping to solve the murders of those who are indeed fully dead.
