CW Orders Pilots For THE FLASH And iZOMBIE
The CW has ordered up three new pilots for this season according to The Hollywood Reporter. The network has ordered pilot for the Supernatural spinoff, The Flash series, and iZombie. The Flash doesn’t come as too big of a surprise considering how much hype has surrounded the potential series as well as how warmly received Barry Allen was on Arrow but iZombie, while expected, wasn’t as safe a bet.
iZombie will be a supernatural crime procedural centering on a medical student-turned-zombie who takes a job at the coroner’s office in order to get the brains she so desperately craves. With every brain she eats she gains the memories of the corpse. This skill will enable her to solve homicide cases alongside her boss and a police detective, but more importantly it will silence the voice of the people whose brains she consumes. Veronica Mars‘ Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero will write the script and executive produce the series. iZombie is based on characters from Chris Roberson and Michael Allred‘s Vertigo series of the same name.
We know quite a bit about The Flash show, but it has now been confirmed that a pilot is ordered. There’s not much more to add to that news. Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, and Geoff Johns will write the script and executive produce. David Nutter will direct the pilot. We know part of the cast is in place and it’s getting ready to film. Now things are just officially official. If you’re a Supernatural fan you can read about the spinoff at the source link below. What do you think about Flash and iZombie getting pilot orders?
