The CW Orders iZOMBIE, JANE THE VIRGIN, IDENTITY Pilots
According to Deadline, The CW has locked in pilots for the drama adaptation of DC Comics' iZOMBIE, from Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero (Veronica Mars), as well as JANE THE VIRGIN, adapted from the Venezuelan telenovela Juana la Virgen, and Alex Kurtzman and Bob Orci's drama series IDENTITY.

iZOMBIE is based on Chris Roberson and Michael Allred's characters and story from the original comic series. It follows a med student who turns into a zombie and uses her job at the coroner's office to eat brains. The catch: Each brain she eats allows her to absorb the corpse's memories, which makes her invaluable to the medical examiner in helping to solve homicide cases.
JANE THE VIRGIN, written by Jennie Snyder Urman, centers on a good, religious girl who is accidentally artificially inseminated.
And finally, IDENTITY is inspired by the Israeli project Dance of the Hours by Orna Raiz. With a script by Corinne Brinkerhoff, the drama follows a young woman on the transplant list who discovers she is related to a powerful family whose son is her organ match. Unfortunately, they are also involved with a domestic terrorist plot, and the girl finds herself caught between their life-saving donation and the moral implications of taking it.
