Report: Vertigo's iZOMBIE Latest Comic Book Headed to TV

When it rains, it pours.

Chris Roberson and Michael Allred's iZombie is now the latest in a (very) rapidly growing line of comic book properties being developed for television.

Warner Bros. TV and Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas and the Veronica Mars feature film co-writer Diane Ruggiero are the writing/executive producing team developing the Vertigo zombie drama for The CW (how soon before it gets rebranded as 'The DC'?) it a "supernatural crime procedural that centers on a med student-turned-zombie who takes a job in the coroner’s office to gain access to the brains she must reluctantly eat to maintain her humanity. But with each brain she consumes, she inherits the corpse’s memories, and with the help of her medical examiner boss and a police detective, she solves homicide cases in order to quiet the disturbing voices in her head."
