iZombie is an American supernatural comedy-drama horror television series developed by Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero-Wright as a loose adaptation of the comic book series of the same name created by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred which follows a young medical resident who is turned into a zombie and satisfies her need to eat brains by working at a morgue.
Rose McIver (Masters of Sex, Once Upon a Time) stars as 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 realises 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.
iZombie also stars Malcolm Goodwin (Breakout Kings), newcomer Rahul Kohli, Robert Buckley (One Tree Hill) and David Anders (Once Upon a Time, The Vampire Diaries).
