The CW Gives iZombie a Pilot Order and the Supernatural Spin-Off a Title
Back in November we learned that The CW was developing "iZombie," based on the Vertigo comic characters created by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred, and now they've given it an official pilot green light. But that's not all...
In addition to fast-tracking "iZombie" (more on that below), the network has given the tentative title of "Supernatural: Tribes" to the backdoor "Supernatural" spinoff episode set in Chicago, written by Andrew Dabb and directed by Robert Singer. Look for it later this season.
Now, as for "iZombie," it's being written by "Veronica Mars" creator Rob Thomas and his frequent collaborator Diane Ruggiero. Thomas and Rugierro, who co-wrote the upcoming Veronica Mars movie, are executive producing with Danielle Stokdyk and Dan Etheridge.
The potential series from Warner Bros. TV and Rob Thomas Productions, 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. 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.
We should have more soon so stay tuned!
