I suppose it was just a matter of time. I mean the world is in such demand for more iPhones each year why not make a series starring the most over-used monster of the last decade and pitch it as something new with an “i” in the front? Okay, I am just a tad cynical. Okay, perhaps more than a tad. I’m just bored to death of all things zombie. Well perhaps that is just me as the folks over at CW have jut released another trailer for their brain eating, medical detective comedy show iZombie and it looks, well, brains?
Based on the popular Image comic book of the same name, iZombie sees Veronica Mars‘s Rob Thomas as showrunner, so we can probably expect the same edgy humour from Rose McIver (who plays the show’s zombie protagonist, Olivia) and co as the old gang in Neptune, California.
As a recently turned non-air stealer, ‘Liv’ has come up with a way to avoid killing folks and eating their brains… And I thought my morning starter off badly. Working at the local coroner’s office allows Liv to feast on as many brains as her heart desires but in doing so also seems to come with the added twist of allowing her to see the dead person’s memories through visions. Using the memories of the deceased Liv sets off to right the wrongs of the dead.
The trailer certainly seems to appeal to the younger market though so don’t expect any World War Z moments.
iZombie is expected to land 17 March and also stars Malcolm Goodwin, Rahul Kohli, Robert Buckley and David Anders.
