The first bits of casting news have arrived for The CW Network’s latest horror property, “iZombie,” and we’ve got the full details right here for ya on our blood-loving menu! Read on!
Deadline reports that David Anders (pictured) has been cast in Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero’s CW drama pilot “iZombie.” He’ll star alongside Alexandra Krosney and Malcolm Goodwin.
“iZombie” is a supernatural crime procedural that centers on Liv, 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. With the help of her medical examiner boss and a police detective (Goodwin), she solves homicide cases in order to quiet the disturbing voices in her head.
Goodwin’s Clive is a detective who recently received a promotion from Vice to Homicide but has been floundering for his first two months and is in desperate need of making a case. Though dubious at first about Liv’s “psychic” powers, she demonstrates too much accuracy for him not to take her seriously.
Krosney plays Peyton, Liv’s best friend and roommate who is baffled by Liv’s recent behavior and feels like they’re drifting apart. Anders plays the show’s bad guy, Blaine, an entitled rich kid who bites off more than he can chew in the drug business.
We should have more soon so stay tuned!
