Fresh off the fan-funded Veronica Mars movie, series creator Rob Thomas is teaming up with writer Diane Ruggerio to write the pilot for a show based on the Vertigo comic iZombie by Chris Roberson and Mike Allred.
The series is in development at the CW, as many TV projects based on DC properties are. Like the comic, the show would follow the exploits of a zombie med student named Gwen who has to eat brains to keep her human appearance.

Cartoon Hangover presents “Bee and PuppyCat Part 2” Bee, a reluctant hero, becomes entangled in the adventures of a puppy (…or is he a cat?) as they travel between reality and the void of Fishbowl Space. Created by Natasha Allegri, character designer and storyboard artist for Adventure Time. We can neither confirm nor deny the autobiographical nature of Bee & PuppyCat.
I’ll admit that I’ve had a few reservations about the upcoming Beware the Batman animated series — mostly because Batman: the Brave and the Bold is probably my platonic ideal of entertainment — but the more I see of it, the more excited I get. And now, Entertainment Weekly has debuted the show’s opening sequence, and any lingering doubts I had have pretty much vanished. This thing looks awesome.
Also, it sounds awesome, thanks to a fantastic theme song by Dum Dum Girls.
