We're just a week away from the debut of The CW's comic-based genre drama iZombie, and here are the first two clips from the undead pilot episode.

The two clips take us inside the mortuary where resident zombie Olivia "Liv" Moore works, and introduce us to more of her wacky gang of friends and co-workers. The tone of the series looks fun, and it's easy to see Rob Thomas' (Veronica Mars) fingerprints all over this thing. We also get to see Liv talking zombie stuff with a fellow undead pal, which makes for a witty intro to the concept.

Combining the supernatural with a procedural-tinged premise populated by attractive young people seems about as on-point as humanly possible for The CW, and we'll be curious to see if this quirky comic could be the network's latest DC hit.

Check out the clips below and let us know what you think:

Along with the first few clips from the pilot, the network has also dropped a nifty interview with the creative team of Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero:
