Rob Thomas’s TV pilot iZombie flew high at the CW network from the start, along with The Flash, and was picked up to series today. What’s it about? Medical-student-turned-zombie Olivia (Once Upon a Time’s Rose McIver with white hair and skin) works in a Seattle Coroner’s Office where she eats the brains of corpses as a way to survive without killing anyone. But after eating the brain of a woman pushed from a balcony, Liv gains access to her memories and decides to help find her killer, passing off her abilities as psychic to work with Seattle homicide detective Clive (Malcolm Goodwin).
Robert Buckley is Liz’s former fiancé and [Aly Milchalka], her best friend and roommate. David Anders is bad zombie Blaine. Besides Beatty Street, the pilot iZombie filmed a chase scene near the Vancouver Film School as the Seattle Police Department and overnight shoots near or in Queen Elizabeth Park, Deer Lake Park and Ioco. Braaaaiiiiinnnnssss.
