Things the CW is missing out on by having made iZombie a midseason show once more:
A promo/trailer set to Thriller, to promote an October premiere alongside the likes of Arrow and Flash. I know Stranger Things did it, but c’mon, this is a show about zombies.
What would help make it distinctive? How about a promo that features the cast singing and dancing along to it? This would be amazing in its own right and also placate the people who want a musical episode…
argument against one is that it wouldn’t suit the type of show that iZombie
is. That’s fine.
They could do something akin to the DC Superhero Fight Club promos where the actors are in character without the promo itself being canon.
Kohli, the strongest voice against a musical episode wouldn’t have to sing. He
could be the British narrator ala Vincent Price. If only I
were a CW executive…
