From the brains behind Veronica Mars (pardon the pun) comes iZombie, a new series from the CW, following Olivia “Liv” Moore (Rose McIver) a disciplined, over-achieving medical resident who had her life path completely mapped out… until she is turned into a zombie.

Now stuck somewhere between half-alive and undead, Liv loses her drive and ambition. She breaks off her engagement with charming soul mate Major (Robert Buckley), fearful of infecting him with her condition.

Liv transfers her medical residency to the city morgue in order to access the only form of sustenance left available to her – the only thing that allows her to maintain her humanity – brains.

There are side effects to Liv’s new diet: With each brain Liv consumes, she experiences “visions” – flashes of the corpse’s memories – which often provide clues as to how they were killed.

Her boss, the brilliant but eccentric Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti (Rahul Kohli), encourages her to embrace this gift and to work with unproven homicide detective, Clive Babineaux (Malcolm Goodwin), to help solve these murders.

In doing so, Liv finds a measure of peace, and a new sense of purpose in what her “life” has now become.

David Anders also stars.

Rob Thomas directed the episode written by Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero-Wright (#101).

iZombie premieres Tuesday March 17 on the CW.
