article imageiZombie: new poster promotes new ‘undead’ crime drama

By Mathew Wace Peck     Jun 7, 2014 in Entertainment
Publicity for The CW’s upcoming new zombie drama series has stepped up a gear with the release, via Blackfilm, of a brand-new promotional poster.
iZombie follows the work of a coroner’s office in which, as detailed by Coming Soon, the protagonist — Olivia “Liv” Moore — “in order to maintain her humanity […,] is forced to dine on the brains of the deceased.” Absorbing the memories of the deceased allows her to solve their murders and other crimes asscociated with them.
According to Blackfilm, Liv becomes a member of the undead the night she “attended a party that unexpectedly turned into a zombie feeding frenzy.”
Once rosy-cheeked, she now passes herself off as a Goth, “with shockingly pale skin and nearly white hair.” However, Blackfilm reports that “Liv has devised a way to resist her baser urges to devour fresh human brains” by taking a dead-end job in the Seattle coroner’s office, allowing her to “secretly snack on the brains of the many Jane and John Doe corpses that make a final stop in the morgue.”
Liv is played by Rose McIver (Once Upon a Time). Other members of the cast include David Anders (also Once Upon a Time), Robert Buckley (One Tree Hill), Nora Dunn (Entourage), Malcolm Goodwin (Breakout Kings) and Ruhul Kohli (Alone Together).

Produced for The CW by Warner Bros., iZombie is loosely based on Chris Roberson and Michael Allred’s Vertigo comic-book series of the same name. The TV series is executive-produced by Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero.
