First Brief Footage From iZOMBIE Features In CW "First Look" Vid

We still await a full trailer, but you can get your first few snippets of footage from the CW's take on the DC/Vertigo comics title from Chris Roberson and Michael Allred after the jump. There's also a few brief shots from The Flash.

Olivia “Liv” Moore was 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 is doing her best to blend in and look as human as possible. Her appearance now passes for “Goth,” with shockingly pale skin and nearly white hair, and her demeanor has gone from exuberant to exhausted. The change in Liv is baffling to her mother, her former fiancé, Major, and her best friend and roommate, Peyton, who still has the high-energy, Type-A personality that Liv has completely abandoned. Despite her post-traumatic ennui, 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, Liv can secretly snack on the brains of the many Jane and John Doe corpses that make a final stop in the morgue. Despite carefully covering her tracks, Liv’s boss, Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti, discovers her secret and is surprisingly excited about the scientific possibilities. Even with her boss’ enthusiasm, 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. Liv begins to experience visions from the point of view of the murder victims. Much to the surprise of Dr. Ravi and homicide detective Clive Babineaux, Liv often has detailed knowledge of crime scenes and motives that she can’t easily explain. Posing as a psychic, she works with Detective Babineaux to investigate these crimes and discover who is responsible. It’s not the same as being alive again, but at least Liv can find purpose in her undead existence by helping Clive solve the murders of those who are indeed fully dead. The series stars Rose McIver (“Masters of Sex,” “Once Upon a Time”) as Liv, Malcolm Goodwin (“Breakout Kings”) as Clive Babineaux, newcomer Rahul Kohli as Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti, Robert Buckley (“One Tree Hill”) as Major Lilywhite, Alexandra Krosney (“Last Man Standing”) as Peyton Charles, David Anders (“Once Upon a Time,” “The Vampire Diaries”) as Blaine DeBeers and Nora Dunn (“Entourage,” “Saturday Night Live”) as Eva Moore. Based upon characters created by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred, and published by DC Entertainment’s Vertigo imprint, iZOMBIE is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Spondoolie Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Rob Thomas (“Veronica Mars,” “Party Down,” “Cupid”), Diane Ruggiero-Wright (“Veronica Mars,” “The Ex List,” “That’s Life”), Danielle Stokdyk (“Veronica Mars,” “Party Down,” “Cupid”) and Dan Etheridge (“The Carrie Diaries,” “Veronica Mars,” “Party Down”). The pilot was directed by Rob Thomas.

Not only do I not see the footage, but the music made this extremely hard to watch.

Neil deGrasse Tyson invalidated the entire zombie genre.

@whysoserious54, that's just your mind playing tricks on you. Humans see faces in anything.
MexicanSexyman - 5/15/2014, 4:23 PM
@ Joe, Oscar wining?
HBarnill - 5/15/2014, 4:25 PM
Made by the creator of Veronica Mars. You'd be a fool not to have high hopes.
JediPhilosopher - 5/15/2014, 4:31 PM
You know in the Kill Bill movies, that pulsing music sound whenever she'd see one of the bad guys for the first time since she woke from the coma? I get that whenevr I see anything about the CW. CW, dark gloomy soap opera central. We dwell in the darkness of characters, because our audience likes prolonged pain, suffering, mental anguish, and soap operas. And once in a while we let our heroes do the right thing, to thwart the complainers. Seriously though, mostly teen-focused violent or supernatural soap opera crap. Okay then, I won't watch it.

i love arrow and will love flash, but why cw? why?? why so teeny and happy and bullshit???

@whysoserious54, If you save the pic and enlarge it and look at it properly is just part of the car like a wheel guard

macfint - 5/15/2014, 5:12 PM
Wow, they are consistent with the insulting sh*i they put out. They are McDonalds.

McGee - 5/15/2014, 5:54 PM

Where was the iZombie footage?
case - 5/15/2014, 10:07 PM
Hahaha McGee! I think they're just wearing a bit too much clothes...

Saw more Flash in this than iZombie.
Humperdink - 5/15/2014, 10:15 PM
Where was the iZombie footage?

You blinked.
Try not to and you'll catch it.
Mothchild - 5/16/2014, 12:28 AM
just saw Godzilla. Blown away. Gareth Edwards ( Ithink) is an amazing director.

McGee - 5/16/2014, 1:01 AM
See it in IMAX or GTFO!
DrunkenNukem - 5/16/2014, 7:39 AM
Im barely interested about this show...
Nivekian - 5/16/2014, 8:13 AM
I really doubt I will watch this show, the Zombie genre is being overplayed right now, they should invest in more superhero stuff.
JeighJeigh - 5/16/2014, 12:09 PM
It'd actually be pretty sweet if this was in the same universe as Arrow and Flash.
