Yay, awesome news for Rose McIver today. ‘iZombie‘was chosen to be a series on the CW! We also had the first exclusive post and learned that the series will be shot in Vancouver (like ‘Once Upon A Time‘). Here are related articles.
The CW split its new series orders between sister studios Warner Bros TV and CBS TV Studios, with two pickups for each. That includes DC Comics-themed The Flash, from Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg, and iZombie, from Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero, produced by Warner Bros TV, and soap Jane The Virgin, from Jennie Snyder Urman, and thriller The Messengers, produced by CBS TV Studios.
A med student-turned-zombie 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.
CAST: Rose McIver, Malcolm Goodwin, Alexandra Krosney, David Anders, Robert Buckley, Nora Dunn, Ruhul Kohli
TEAM: Rob Thomas (w, ep), Diane Ruggiero (w, ep), Danielle Stokdyk (ep), Dan Etheridge (ep)

Rob Thomas’s TV pilot iZombie flew high at the CW network from the start, along with The Flash, and was picked up to series today. What’s it about? Medical-student-turned-zombie Olivia (Once Upon a Time’s Rose McIver with white hair and skin) works in a Seattle Coroner’s Office where she eats the brains of corpses as a way to survive without killing anyone. But after eating the brain of a woman pushed from a balcony, Liv gains access to her memories and decides to help find her killer, passing off her abilities as psychic to work with Seattle homicide detective Clive (Malcolm Goodwin).
Robert Buckley is Liz’s former fiancé and Alexandra Krosney, her best friend and roommate. Nora Dunn is her mother while David Anders is bad guy Blaine. Besides Beatty Street, the pilot iZombie filmed a chase scene near the Vancouver Film School as the Seattle Police Department and overnight shoots near or in Queen Elizabeth Park, Deer Lake Park and Ioco. Braaaaiiiiinnnnssss.
