Rose McIver's Liv gets some zombie company in the first of two new clips from the Pilot episode of CW's iZombie, debuting March 17. David Anders plays Blaine, a fellow member of the undead, who explains to Liv that the man he was chasing in her vision tried to mug him, causing him to "rage out." Blaine also wants to know if she has a special term for what happens when she sees visions of dead people's lives, by eating their brains, which she calls "full-on zombie mode." Unfortunately for Blaine, Liv doesn't exactly take to his catch-phrase "raging out." The second clip shows Liv and her boss at the coroner's office with Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti (Rahul Kohli) discussing the possibility of a zombie outbreak, before Detective Clive Babineaux (Malcolm Goodwin) bursts in.
The series centers on Olivia "Liv" Moore, a rosy-cheeked, disciplined, over-achieving medical resident who had her life path completely mapped out... until the night she attended a party that unexpectedly turned into a zombie feeding frenzy. As one of the newly undead, Liv has devised a way to resist her baser urges to devour fresh human brains - she's taken a job in the Seattle coroner's office. In this appropriately dead-end job, she can secretly snack on the brains of the many Jane and John Doe corpses that make a final stop in the morgue.
Liv remains resigned to an eternity without hope or purpose, until she realizes that with every brain she consumes, she retains a portion of that person's memories, and she begins to experience visions from the point of view of the murder victims. It's not the same as being alive again, but at least she can find purpose in her undead existence by helping to solve the murders of those who are indeed fully dead. Take a look at the new clips from iZombie's first episode, before it debuts Tuesday, March 17 on The CW.
