'iZombie' producer Rob Thomas: 'We want to get to the kickass fun mythology stuff'

What are the odds of another 'Veronica Mars' movie? And is the 'Party Down' movie dead?

Earlier today, I ran the first of my two interviews with the executive producers of “iZombie,” the new CW drama (it debuts tonight at 9) starring Rose McIver as an intelligent zombie who solves the murders of the corpses whose brains she eats to stay functional. (As I said in that post, the premise sounds dumb, but is handled deftly and with a great sense of fun by the “Veronica Mars” team of Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero-Wright.)

'iZombie' producer Diane Ruggiero-Wright on going from 'Veronica Mars' to the wa

'I wanted to do a show in which zombies were part of the pop culture'

Describing the premise of the CW’s “iZombie” always makes me feel slightly dumber. You see, Liv (Rose McIver from “Masters of Sex”) is a promising med student who gets bitten by a zombie, but discovers that she retains her intelligence and personality so long as she gets a steady diet of brains. And when she gets a job at the local morgue for steady access to brains without violence, she discovers that eating other people’s brains gives her temporary access to their memories, skills and personality traits, which she uses — by posing as a psychic for cop Clive (Malcolm Goodwin) — to solve their murders.

As 'Community' heads to Yahoo, what crazy turn will its story take next?

Will there be a movie? More cast changes? What will the future bring?

Tonight at 12:01 a.m. Pacific, "Community" will become the latest cultish show canceled by a traditional TV network to live again via a streaming service — and the first of its kind to migrate over to Yahoo Screen, which will be debuting the rest of this sixth season every Monday night/Tuesday morning at this time(*).

March Mayhem returns with more Heroes vs. Villains from movies & TV

March Mayhem returns with more Heroes vs. Villains from movies & TV

Go vote for your favorites!

Last night, the NCAA announced the teams that will compete in this year's March Madness men's college basketball tournament. Now it's time for the return of our own take on bracketology, with year 2 of our March Mayhem Heroes vs. Villains tournament.

A year ago, we picked 64 of our favorite good guys and bad guys from movies and television and pitted them — and, more importantly, their fanbases — against each other. To the surprise of many, fans of "Xena: Warrior Princess" rode in to trounce all comers. This year, we kept the top two finishers from each bracket (which gives Xena a chance to defender her crown), but otherwise brought in fresh blood. Voting for the first round begins now, so go vote, then come back here and yell at us about seeding, notable snubs (many of which could wind up in next year's tournament), etc.

Have fun.

Happy Monday, boys and girls!

Beyond that, we previewed the transition of "Community" to Yahoo, discussed Netflix's "Bloodline" and the return of "Undateable" to NBC, and answered your mail.

'Better Call Saul' creators on the 'purposely sh--ty' opening title sequence

And what should viewers expect from the end of 'Saul' season 1?

It's not often that you hear TV producers proudly describe an aspect of their show as looking terrible — and using much less polite language than that — but then it's not often you have TV producers both as talented and idiosyncratic as "Better Call Saul" creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould.
