Rose McIver as Tink

McIver will portray Olivia “Liv” Moore on this Rob Thomas-produced pilot, which center on as medical student (Liv) who becomes a zombie and takes a job at the coroner's office because it's the safest way for her to satisfy her human-based hunger.

With each brain she consumes, Liv inherits that dead person's memories… which coms in handy when she starts working with authorities to solve homicide cases.

Joining McIver for this highly anticipated pilot are:

  • David Anders (The Vampire Diaries)
  • Malcolm Goodwin (Breakout Kings)
  • Robert Buckley (One Tree Hill)
  • Nora Dunn (Saturday Night Live)
  • Alexandra Krosney (Last Man Standing)
