DC Television The Year of the Comic Book Pilot Continues; CW Picks up IZOMBIE written by Robert Reineke February 1, 2014 According to the reliable Deadline, yet another comic book is getting a pilot as the CW is going to pilot with an adaptation of Chris Roberson and Michael Allred’s iZombie. With Rob Thomas, the creator of VERONICA MARS, set to run the show. Obviously, not every series that goes to pilot ends up going to series, the CW also allegedly has an HOURMAN series that they’re considering, along with the sure fire THE FLASH, but it bodes wells for DC efforts to expand into television. And it’s nice that there’s some variety. I don’t know that we need another zombie series at this point, but at least this one has a unique spin on the genre. Who knows, by this time next year, we may be asking for less comic book related content instead of more.

Robert Reineke There’s no way I have the time to watch all of the new shows and keep up with all of the old ones, some of which are going to have to pick up their quality. The novelty will be gone very soon. That’s a good thing. A series can fail without it meaning much of anything to the future of the genre on tv.
