The Rob Thomas-led adaptation of Chris Roberson and Mike Allred‘s Vertigo comic “iZombie” is finally ready to sink its teeth into prime time. And with The CW‘s series arriving on March 17, the network has released the official poster for the series which will doubtlessly be covering buses and subway cars soon.
CBR News spoke with series star Rose McIver earlier this year, and the actress summed up the series, saying, “I always think of the tone as zombie, comedy and procedural. That, to me, sums up what we are. I think we have elements of drama and adventure. We’ve got genre stuff with zombies. There’s an innate humor when your lead character is a zombie and pretending to be a regular human. And then it’s got a real procedural element where we solve crimes each week.
“I feel like everything Liv hung her identity on has been swiped out underneath her,” McIver added of her character. “I think we do feel that to an extent, when you come out of school or a system where we’ve had certain things we can associate ourselves with. Just even normally it’s like, ‘What do you do?’ ‘Well, I do this…’ When you first come out of school and you’re finding yourself and your identity, add on top of that you are an undead zombie it steps up those stakes a little.”
