With so much amazing TV on now, a CW show called iZombie might not be at the top of your to-do list. But it’s worth your time. Although it presents a pretty absurd premise to buy into — Liv (Rose McIver) is an ex–medical resident turned zombie who uses visions she gets from eating the brains of cadavers to help solve their murders — each episode is good for a laugh and a gut-punch of pure pathos. After becoming a zombie, Liv breaks things off with her fiancé Major (Robert Buckley) because she’s afraid she’ll turn him into a zombie, her career goals fall away, and she’s left unsure about her future. Vulture caught up with McIver to talk about her character’s relationships, the emotional power of the show, what’s coming, and how she’d survive a zombie apocalypse.The show is so emotionally resonant, »

Based on the comic book of the same name, the quirky and deliciously fun CW series iZombie follows Olivia “Liv” Moore (Rose McIver), as she navigates her life as a newly turned zombie, who also happens to experience visions from the point of view of the person whose brain she consumes. Keeping her new life a secret from friends and family, she decides to pass herself off as psychic, in order to use her new ability to help investigate and solve crimes. While at WonderCon to promote their freshman series, actors Rose McIver (“Liv Moore”), David Anders (“Blaine DeBeers”), Malcolm Goodwin (“Detective Clive Babineaux”) and Robert Buckley (“Major Lilywhite”) were joined by executive producers Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero-Wright to talk about using the comic books as a template and expanding from there, just how many zombies might be out there, what’s still to come this season, and having »

WonderCon took place this past Easter weekend over in Anaheim, California, and we’ve scoured YouTube to track down several of the panels from the convention in San Andreas, Gotham, The Flash, Batman vs. Robin, iZombie and Orphan Black, which we’ve posted below for your viewing pleasure…

A witty erudite blonde solves crimes whilst attempting to overcome the emotional baggage of a previous trauma. For all intents and purposes, Rob Thomas’ iZombie is Veronica Mars - except instead of playing in the shadows of film-noir, Thomas has his feet firmly planted in the ever-popular zombie genre. It’s a welcome mix of the familiar (the aforementioned blonde solving crimes) and the new (said aforementioned blonde is a recently un-dead zombie). Instead of dealing with the murky grey morality of V-Mars, iZombie seems to be concerned with the existential pangs of an existence that has already ended. That the show’s able to ruminate on such meaty topics in between an onslaught of pop-culture jabs and puns shouldn’t come as a surprise. Thomas has always had a deft touch in blending theological musings with a sharp sense of humor. Such was evident at today’s WonderCon panel for the series. »

The Walking Dead has become an incredibly successful TV show on cable television. Now, The CW is trying their own zombie genre series. Will it be a ratings success as well? Cancelled or renewed for a second season? Stay tuned.
Loosely based on a comic book series, iZombie revolves around an over-achieving medical resident (Rose McIver) who ends up as a zombie. She's able to keep her new condition a secret from her loved ones and, thanks to knowledge gained from dining on cadaver brains, is also able to help the police solve murders. The rest of the cast includes Malcolm Goodwin, Rahul Kohli, Robert Buckley, and David Anders.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as »
Poor Major! He's about as perfect a guy as you can find and Liv dumped him without any explanation at all on iZombie. His integration into the zombie world won't be coming from Liv though, but through his job as a social worker.
BuddyTV spoke with Robert Buckley about playing a character who doesn't know Liv's secret, her unique relationship with Major, and how Major finds out about the existence of zombies. »

Hollywood headed down south for the 2015 SXSW film, interactive and music festival in Austin, Texas, for the annual 10-day event, which wraps up on March 22.
“No one wants to go up those flights of stairs over and over and over again. Once you’re up, you kind of just stay here,” star Shane West joked about the jam-packed rooftop soireé, which was complete with aerialists (a.k.a. levitating enchantresses) and apothecaries — better known as multiple bars — as he sipped on a cocktail.
“It’s funky-town,” new cast member Lucy Lawless told Variety, hours after arriving at SXSW with her co-stars (the entire “Salem” cast took a six-hour road trip together from their Shreveport, La., set to Austin, thanks to their flights being canceled at the last minute). “[Austin] has got so much character. »

iZombie, Season 1, Episode 1, “Pilot”
Directed by Rob Thomas
Airs Tuesdays at 9pm (Et) on The CW
Rob Thomas has been known to television fans for a number of shows over the years, from Veronica Mars to Party Down. His newest series, developed in conjunction with Diane Ruggiero-Wright, brings the iZombie comics to the small screen in a show of the same name. The show is centred around a morgue assistant who is also a member of the undead, and whose diet of brains comes with the side effect of absorbing the individual’s memories. The pilot episode proves lead actress Rose McIver is more than up for the role, while introducing some potentially compelling threads about Liv Moore and her abilities, as well as presenting a number of secondary characters and relationships that mostly show promise.

This review is based off the first four episodes of season one, which were provided to us for review purposes prior to broadcast.
A spunky and sharp-witted antidote to grim, gory zombie shows like AMC’s The Walking Dead and Syfy’s Z Nation, The CW’s iZombie is a shockingly well-timed series, especially given its inescapably ill-fitting and already dated title. Arriving in the middle of an unappealing glut of undead-centric projects, the show exceeds any expectations one might have, quickly setting itself apart with a smart sense of humor and gratifying self-awareness. Maybe that shouldn’t come as a surprise though, given its creator: Rob Thomas, of Veronica Mars fame.
Much like that beloved series, iZombie centers on an unconventional detective whose quippy, plucky disposition is swiftly established via charming voice-over. Also like Veronica Mars, she has recently gone through a traumatic, transformative experience and finds herself dealing »

TV show description:
This horror/crime dramedy is loosely based on a comic book series of the same name that's published by DC Comics' Vertigo imprint.
Olivia "Liv" Moore (Rose McIver) was a rosy-cheeked, disciplined, and 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.
Welcome to "iZombie," boys and girls. Earlier today, I published interviews with producers Diane Ruggiero-Wright and Rob Thomas, and I have a review of the series premiere coming up just as soon as I choose not to have a drawer full of fake eyeballs... "It's probably wrong that every time I see a dead body, I think, 'What the hell am I doing with my life?'" -Liv TV adaptations — whether from books, movies, comic books or even other TV shows — are a tricky thing. Ideally, you want to capture what was compelling in the source material without doing a straight-up copy, but if you make too many changes, you risk annoying the pre-existing fanbase who helped your adaptation become a reality in the first place. Unlike a lot of the recent comic book adaptations, "iZombie" plays very loose with the source material. Thomas and Ruggiero-Wright, not wanting to do a "True Blood" rehash, »

Being a member of the walking dead can take the life right outta you, as iZombie protagonist Liv learns in the premiere of the CW’s new series.
Aside from the whole barely-alive-albino-skin-wanna-eat-brains-24/7 thing, Liv (played by Once Upon a Time‘s Rose McIver) finds out that one of the biggest bummers of zombification is that you just don’t care about much anymore. Not about your burgeoning career as a heart surgeon. Not about your super hot, super understanding ex-fiancé, Major (Robert Buckley, One Tree Hill). Not about your friend and roomie, Peyton (Aly Michalka, Hellcats).

The CW’s latest series “iZombie,” which debuts Tuesday night, had its world premiere at SXSW.
Ruggiero-Wright played basketball over cocktails Monday night with her “iZombie” team at the “Jimmy Kimmel Live” SXSW party at the Samsung Studio.
The network also hosted an “Undead” premiere party, along with Buzzfeed, Saturday night in downtown Austin, with zombies tending the bar, pouring “Brain Appétit”-themed drinks.
“I was so into zombies before. I was never really on the vampire train,” Ruggiero-Wright told Variety of the show’s fan-favorite theme at SXSW. “I was just on the zombie train myself, so let’s hope that they’re the new vampire for us and that we have the longevity of ‘The Vampire Diaries’ and the popularity of ‘Twilight. »
