The CW series from the Veronica Mars creative team “carves out a space in the crowded landscape of Undead Entertainment by lightening up,” says Neil Genzlinger. “Unlike many of her TV and film counterparts, the featured zombie here, delightfully known as Liv (short for Olivia), is not all doom and gloom about being semideceased. She makes a conscious choice to be a force for good in the human world. All in all, a fine role model for our young people.” PLUS: It feeds the craving for quick wit left by Veronica Mars, but it’s more than Veronica with zombies, it manages to pull off a tricky balancing act, meet murder-solving heroine Liv, and producer Rob Thomas wanted to get to the “kickass fun mythology stuff.”
