CW Updates Plot Description And Cast for iZOMBIE

Categories Uncategorized
With less than two weeks to go before The Flash and Arrow
return from their midseason hiatuses, the CW Network has turned their attention
hyping their forthcoming third DC-Based Series, iZombie.   This week they
released an updated press release for the series.
The full text of the release is below, unfortunately there
is still no premiere date and most of the cast in the release has been announced
previously.  However, there is a pretty detailed
synopsis for the show so here are some of the highlights:

  1. “Liv” is a driven medical student in the middle
    of her residency until she attends a party and is attacked by zombies.
  2. She takes a job in a Seattle coroner’s office to try to
    resist the urge to feed on human flesh.
  3. Her supervisor discovers this and is excited at the
    scientific possibilities.  He even helps
    her to track down the zombie that turned her.

  4. She learns that she retains some of the memories from the
    brain tissue she consumes.  She poses as
    a psychic to get information to the police.

Watchtower of Babel will keep you up to date on iZombie and other DC Television series
and movies so stayed tuned for more information as it becomes available.

“iZOMBIE”
(Day and Time TBA) on The CW
 

Olivia “Liv” Moore was 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. Now as
one of the newly undead, Liv is doing her best to blend in and look as human as
possible. Her appearance passes for “Goth,” with shockingly pale skin and
nearly white hair, and her demeanor has gone from exuberant to exhausted.
 

The change in Liv is baffling to her former fiancé, Major, her mother, Eva, and
her best friend and roommate, Peyton, who still has the high-energy, Type-A
personality that Liv has completely abandoned. Despite her post-traumatic
ennui, Liv has devised a clever 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, Liv can secretly snack on the brains of the many
Jane and John Doe corpses that make a final stop in the morgue. Despite
carefully covering her tracks, Liv’s brilliant but eccentric boss, Dr. Ravi
Chakrabarti, discovers her secret and is surprisingly excited about the
scientific possibilities. Dr. Ravi even helps Liv in her search for Blaine, the
zombie responsible for her current undead status. 

Even with her boss’ enthusiasm, Liv remains resigned to an eternity as a zombie
without hope or purpose – until she realizes that with every brain she consumes,
she retains a portion of that person’s memories. Liv suddenly begins to
experience disturbing and often violent visions from the point of view of the
murder victims. Much to the surprise of Dr. Ravi and homicide detective Clive
Babineaux, Liv often has detailed knowledge of crime scenes and motives that
she can’t easily explain. Posing as a psychic, she works with Detective
Babineaux to investigate these crimes and discover who is responsible. It’s not
the same as being alive again, but at least she can find purpose in her undead
existence by helping Clive solve the murders of those who are indeed fully
dead.
 

The series stars Rose McIver (“Masters of Sex,” “Once Upon a Time”) as Liv,
Malcolm Goodwin (“Breakout Kings”) as Clive Babineaux, newcomer Rahul Kohli as
Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti, Robert Buckley (“One Tree Hill”) as Major Lilywhite and
David Anders (“Once Upon a Time,” “The Vampire Diaries”) as Blaine DeBeers.

published by DC Entertainment’s Vertigo imprint, iZOMBIE is from Bonanza
Productions Inc. in association with Spondoolie Productions and Warner Bros.
Television, with executive producers Rob Thomas (“Veronica Mars,” “Party Down,”
