Two days after the Blu-ray/DVD release of his Kickstarted feature version of Veronica Mars, the CW has announced they’ve put in a series order for Thomas’ next project, the comic book adaptation iZombie.
Rose McIver seems far too beautiful to be a zombie, and yet she may very well get to play one on TV, as she's been cast in the lead role of Diane Ruggiero and Rob Thomas' pilot adaptation of DC Comics' iZombie. McIver, whom you may recognize for playing Tinker Bell in Once Upon a Time or Vivien Scully in Masters of Sex, is the latest to join the potential series
Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero's iZombie pilot has added another actor to its cast, and it's one that should be familiar to One Tree Hill fans. Robert Buckley, who played Clayton Evans on the CW series, has signed on to play a character with close ties to (and strong feelings for) the lead character in the potential series.
Rob Thomas' iZombie Adaptation, Kurtzman And Orci's 'Identity,' Jane the Virgin Get Pilot Orders At CW
Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas just inched a bit closer to returning to The CW. His adaptation of DC Comics' iZombie is one of a few projects that received a pilot order from the CW. Jane the Virgin and Identity also received pilot orders at the CW.
A long time ago, we used to be friends. And then the CW cancelled Veronica Mars. Some of us ranted. Most of us moved on. But we were all drawn back to Neptune the moment Rob Thomas gave us hope that we would have our favorite Marshmallow back in movie form if we helped Kickstart it.
Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas knows a thing or two about smart, witty detectives, but what does he know about zombies? We may find out, as Thomas is reportedly reuniting with VM executive producer Diane Ruggiero for an adaptation of DC’s iZombie. And we can add this to the list of DC properties CW is looking to develop (see also Hourman, Flash, and of course, the currently airing Arrow).
In addition to the news that USA had greenlit two new comedy series and put one pilot into development, the cable channel announced that they're developing a number of new dramas, which could eventually join the likes of White Collar, Royal Pains, Burn Notice, Covert Affairs, Necessary Roughness and newcomer Graceland at the network.
The long-running radio show This American Life has already received the TV treatment once, with a Showtime series that debuted back in 2007. Now it looks like a new adaptation of the radio show is in the works, this time for HBO. This one will focus on on particular story told on the series back in 2010, and Veronica Mars’ Rob Thomas is among those attached to bring it to the small screen.

Earlier today we got an update from writer Rob Thomas on his continued interest in making a Veronica Mars movie. In the write-up of his comments, Katey mentioned that I said I thought the film could work and I’m sticking to that
The Christmas in Rockefeller Center special on NBC this Wednesday, December 2, just went from a pretty good lineup to a must-see event. At least for me, that is. Today, NBC rounded out the lineup for the star-studded musical extravaganza with the addition of Jo Dee Messina, Rod Stewart and Rob Thomas. Most importantly, though, the Muppets will be there!
Megan Mullaly will play a middle-aged mother who moves to Hollywood so her 13-year-old daughter Escapade – yes, Escapade – can become an actress. I hope they didn’t pay too much for Escapade’s head shots
It looks like ABC is set to add a handful of new series to their midseason primetime line-up. The network has just greenlit three dramas and two comedies, including a series that will star Nathan “Captain Hammer” Fillion as well as Rob Thomas’ latest TV project (Veronica Mars fans rejoice!).
I adore Catherine O’Hara. There’s something about her style of comedy that I just love. So I can’t help but get excited over the news that she’s in negotiations to star in the new ABC drama, Good Behavior. Since Good Behavior is described as a dramedy, I’m thinking O’Hara will be a good choice for the role.
