From the executive producers of Veronica Mars, iZOMBIE stars Rose McIver (Masters of Sex, Once Upon a Time) as Olivia "Liv" Moore, a medical resident on the fast track to a perfect life ... until she's turned into a zombie. Now stuck between half-alive and undead, Liv transfers to the city morgue to reluctantly access 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 she consumes, she experiences flashes of the corpse's memories — including, at times, clues as to how they were killed. Her brilliant and eccentric boss encourages her to embrace this gift and to work with an eager, unproven homicide detective to help solve these murders ... and quiet the voices in her head. iZOMBIE is based upon characters published by DC Entertainment's Vertigo imprint.
In the new one-hour drama iZOMBIE, Olivia "Liv" Moore (series star ROSE McIVER) is a disciplined, overachieving medical resident who has her life path completely mapped out ... until the night 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 withdraws from her best friend and partner in overachievement, Peyton (recurring guest star ALY MICHALKA — Two and a Half Men, Hellcats, Easy A), calls off her engagement with the love of her life, Major (series star ROBERT BUCKLEY), and 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 Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti (series star RAHUL KOHLI), encourages her to embrace this gift and to work with an eager, unproven homicide detective, Clive Babineaux (series star MALCOM 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. It's not the same as being alive again, but at least she can find purpose in her undead existence by helping solve the murders of those who are, indeed, fully dead.
