My soon to be new zombie love iZombie TV series is set to premiere this week and the CW has revealed the opening credits of the show based loosly on the Vertigo Comics of the same name. A cool connection to the new opening titles is that they are drawn by none other than Michael Allred, Madman creator, and the man responsible for the iZombie comic book's look.
RobThomas and fellow Veronica Mars alumni: Diane Ruggiero-Wright, Danielle Stokdyk and Dan Etheridge will executive produce the series. Through the title sequence the show has found a fun comic book way to tie the two mediums together. Take a Look: Here's what Thomas had to say to ComicBook.com at last Summer's San Diego Comic-Con about the upcoming series
"I think what we carried over was the big idea of the comic book which is the woman in her mid-20s becomes a functioning zombie and when she eats brains she inherits the memories. Even in the comic book she tries to solve these outstanding issues of the dead and we play that in the TV series as well. What I needed was a story mechanism that allowed her to do it every week. I wanted very closed cases and working in the police morgue gave me a dead, murdered body each week which made it easier to adapt as a TV show."
That new series iZombie is based on the DC/Vertigo comic of the same name and stars Rose McIver (Masters of Sex) as Liv, Malcolm Goodwin (Breakout Kings) as Clive Babineaux, Rahul Kohli as Dr. Ravi Chakarabarti, Robert Buckley (One Tree Hill) as Major Lilywhite and David Anders (Once Upon a Time) as Blaine De Beers.
The series premieres this Tuesday on the CW March 17, 2015 after The Flash. What do you guys think of the opening for the series?
