(SOURCE) iZombie ended up not screening its full pilot at Warner Brothers TV’s Preview Night because it’s not complete. Some re-casting has been done since showrunner Rob Thomas (Veronica Mars) shot the pilot in Vancouver and three days of re-shoots will be scheduled. Instead, fans saw a 15-minute preview of iZombie, showing 25-year-old medical resident Olivia “Liv” Moore (Once Upon a Time’s Rose McIver) turned into zombie and struggle to find a way to feed on BRAAAINS without killing people. She breaks her engagement to Major Lilywhite (Robert Buckley) and takes a job at the Seattle Coroner’s office where she eats the BRAAAINS of murder victims, gains their memories and assists medical examiner Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti (Rahul Kohli) and homicide detective Clive Babineaux (Malcolm Goodwin) to solve their deaths.

At the iZombie panel on Thursday, July 24th, showrunners Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero-Wright said their comic zombie-procedural will have an overarching storyline about Liv being key to the prevention of a zombie apocalypse, no doubt involving evil zombie Blaine (David Anders).

Producers said Rose McIver was the last actress of about 100 to audition for the role and the one they chose.

iZombie is back filming n Vancouver on August 25th. Wonder if the cast will lurch down Robson Street in our annual ZombieWalk on September 6th.

Exclusive: Kristen Bell, Jason Dohring, and a dozen other Veronica Mars alums will co-star in Play It Again, Dick.

When Play It Again, Dick — a web series revolving around Ryan Hansen’s fan favorite Veronica Mars character, Dick Casablancas — was announced in January 2014, creator Rob Thomas described the project like this: “The web series will have more in common with Party Down tonally, but it will be about Ryan Hansen, or at least a version of Ryan Hansen, deciding to capitalize on the current Veronica Mars heat to get his own series on the air. He’ll try to pull his actor pals into the venture with varying degrees of success.”

In the subsequent seven months, Thomas has been silent on the series. But with filming on the eight-episode series recently completed, BuzzFeed can now reveal the actors who will join Ryan Hansen — who plays Dick Casablancas and a fictionalized version of himself — in the super-meta series.

To read the full article, follow this link. There is at least one other familar name on the list of celebrities set to star in it for us Rose fans…

(SOURCE) It’s everything you never knew you wanted: Veronica Mars with zombies. Hypable got the chance to check out the iZombie panel at SDCC this weekend, and Rob Thomas’ anticipated new pilot didn’t disappoint. Here are seven reasons why you should get excited to check out iZombie this fall.

Rob Thomas

Rob Thomas is probably best known as the showrunner and creator of the indie darling turned Kickstarter-hit Veronica Mars. His penchant for turning out intelligent, well-written leading ladies is what got him the iZombie gig in the first place. The studio pitched the iZombie property to Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero with the full intention of getting back to the network’s old-school roots with a show centered around a strong, fascinating woman.

And from the moment the trailer starts rolling, this show feels like a Rob Thomas show. His signature witty, pop-culture influenced dialogue pops off the screen, and several Veronica Mars and Party Down alumni have already made guest appearances. So let’s just say if you’re feeling a little nostalgic for the loveable lying lawyer Cliff, you better turn on the weather channel.

A sassy heroine

No more taser needed; this badass chick has superhero zombie powers.

The best thing about our new leading lady might be the fact that she totally Hulks-out when provoked, but that’s not the only difference this little blonde has from our other favorite petite detective. Liv has a less misanthropic view of the world than Veronica does; she sees and appreciates the beauty of being human. She believes in love. She believes in the goodness of humanity.

And of course, her powers are pretty cool too. When Liv does eat a dead person’s brains, she picks up their talents and personality traits– for better and worse. She’s thrifty: to disguise her zombie condition, she pretends to be psychic. And her zombie powers are pretty epic to behold; they’re adrenaline-triggered, which means she doesn’t have the ability to turn them on and off. So yes, they do occasionally appear at the most inopportune moments.

At her heart though, Liv is just another woman in her twenties whose life of purpose has just been stripped of meaning. And though she’s lost her sense of self, she’s still a fighter. And yes, she can throw out a sassy quip with the best of them.

Quirky friends

Veronica Mars was beloved for it’s quirky set of supporting characters, and from the looks of iZombie, we’re in for a few treats. From a pragmatic detective to a kooky medical examiner who’s all too ready to embrace Liv’s zombie nature, her friends are sure to keep us clambering for next week.

Deliciously evil enemies

David Anders plays a drug-dealing evil zombie named Blaine DeBeers. Needless to say, he’s a little extravagant.

A sexy soulmate

Rob Thomas knows how to make a room swoon. And though Liv’s perfect fiance Major Lilywhite is a far cry from badboy heartthrob Logan Echolls, our hope in the sweet, gorgeous doctor was redeemed when Robert Buckley stole the SDCC panel spotlight with his hilarious and self-deprecating sense of humor.

Fun, ‘Veronica Mars’-style mysteries

iZombie is a TV drama with a sense of humor, and though it’s similar to Veronica Mars in tone, it promises to be more action-packed, like Warner Brothers’ beloved Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

The show will be borrowing the comic book’s big ideas regarding zombies, but from the start, it’s already adding its own twists to make it a unique, stand-alone television show. Like in the comics, the zombie heroine eats human brains to survive and therefore receives the deceased person’s memories, but in the show she works in a morgue instead of as a gravedigger. And though in the comic books the heroine is motivated to solve the dead’s leftover problems, to make the television show’s story sustainable in a weekly format, she will be working to solve the mysteries of the deceased’s murders.

Epic season-long arcs

Everyone knows that the best part of Rob Thomas’ Veronica Mars wasn’t the weekly procedurals though, it was the horrifying, captivating season-long mysteries. And though Rob Thomas promised us that iZombie will be a straight zombie procedural in that no other monsters will be introduced (sorry were-terriers!), it is not a straight procedural in the traditional sense. Continuity is important on iZombie, and the zombie plotlines of Liv discovering why she contracted her disease and searching for the zombie cure will drive the story arcs for each season.

Before the “iZombie” panel (which you can read all about in our mega-post over here – it’s still being updated), Rose attented the Batman 75th Anniversary And ‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ Unveil ‘Cape/Cowl/Create’ Art Exhibit At the SDCC. At the event, Rose was wearing an AQ/AQ top, Sans Souci skirt, and Carlo Pazolini shoes and clutch. She looked amazing! I really love her short hair. We only have 4 images so far, but I’m sure we’ll get more later…

I have also uploaded photos from both the iZombie fan signing and the panel. I’m sure we will have many more soon, but there’s already added some really gorgeous shots of Rose!

Edit by Sara: Thanks to my friend Lora, I have replaced the four images from the Art Exhibit with high quality versions. Enjoy!
