iZombie - Episode 1.01 - Pilot - Extended Synopsis

"PILOT"

iZOMBIE is a new one-hour drama co-created and executive produced by Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero-Wright (Veronica Mars), along with executive producers Danielle Stokdyk and Dan Etheridge (also of Veronica Mars). Rose McIver (Masters of Sex, Once Upon a Time) stars as Olivia "Liv" Moore, a 25-year-old medical resident on the fast track to a perfect life ... until she's turned into a zombie.

Now stuck somewhere between half-alive and undead, Liv loses all traces of her former drive and ambition. She breaks off her engagement with charming soulmate Major, fearful of infecting him with her condition. She withdraws from her best friend and partner in overachievement, Peyton. And, perhaps most worrisome to her caring but overbearing mom, Eva, Liv transfers her medical residency to the city morgue in order to reluctantly access the only real form of sustenance left available to her -- and the only thing that allows her to maintain her humanity -- human brains.

But there are side effects to Liv's new diet: With each brain Liv consumes, she experiences "visions" -- flashes of the corpse's memories -- including, in some cases, clues as to how they were killed. Her boss, the brilliant but eccentric conspiracy theorist Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti, encourages her to embrace this gift and to work with an eager, unproven homicide detective, Clive Babineaux, 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.

iZOMBIE is based upon characters created by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred, published by DC Entertainment's Vertigo imprint.

U.S. Broadcast Premiere: TBA

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
