The CW’s new show iZombie premieres Tuesday, March 17 — yes, it happens to be St. Patrick’s Day, but trust us, this event is nothing about green and all about red. iZombie is fun and squishy and suspenseful — with an intriguing twist.

The CW describes the show this way:

Olivia ‘Liv’ Moore was a rosy-cheeked, disciplined, over-achieving medical resident who had her life path completely mapped out. That is, until the night she attended a party that unexpectedly turned into a zombie feeding frenzy.

Hate it when a party goes south like that.

So now, Liv has to come up with a clever way to resist her urges to… devour fresh human brains. A dead-end (get it?) job at the Seattle coroner’s office is perfect; she can secretly snack on the brains of the many Jane and John Doe corpses that make their final stop in the morgue.

Despite her post-traumatic ennui, Liv has devised a clever way to resist her baser urges to devour fresh human brains – she’s taken a job in the Seattle coroner’s office.

But here begin the intriguing twists. Despite the careful covering of her tracks, Liv’s boss discovers her secret; fortunately, he’s excited about the scientific possibilities and helps Liv in her search for Blaine, the zombie responsible for her current undead status.

But wait, there’s another big twist. Liv discovers that with every brain she consumes, she retains a portion of that person’s memories, which include disturbing and often violent visions from the point of view of murder victims.

So how does a hardworking zombie put herself to good use?

Pose as a psychic and work with police to solve crimes, of course. It’s the least she can do for the undead, seeing as how their brains give her detailed knowledge of crime scenes and motives.

Dr. Ravi even helps Liv in her search for Blaine, the zombie responsible for her current undead status. Even with her boss’ enthusiasm, Liv remains resigned to an eternity as a zombie without hope or purpose – until she realizes that with every brain she consumes, she retains a portion of that person’s memories.

Recently, the Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas Troop 2049 and volunteers got together to screen the pilot episode of iZombie — and they did it in true iZombie style.

 


And we weren’t the only ones cooking. The folks behind iZombie served up some great zombie fixins this week in their Brain Appetit! food truck in NYC.


Here’s a first look, so you know what you’re in for:
