Rose McIver spent five seasons playing the undead in Rob Thomas' and Diane Ruggiero-Wright's quirky CW horror comedy iZombie, and now she'll be living with them for CBS.

THR reports that Ghosts is the first comedy pickup of the upcoming season, bringing in New Girl producers Joe Port and Joe Wiseman to write the script, and they'll be exec producing alongside Mathew Baynton, Jim Howick, Simon Farnaby, Laurence Rickard, Ben Willbond, Martha Howe-Douglas, Alison Carpenter, Debra Hayward, Alison Owen and Angie Stephenson.

Ghosts is based on the BBC One series of the same name, and McIver stars alongside The Mindy Project's Utkarsh Ambudkar as "a struggling young couple whose dreams come true when they inherit a beautiful country house only to find it's both falling apart and inhabited by many of its deceased previous residents."

Sure, this is a lot of comedy people to list on a horror blog, but with McIver's zombie cred and a title like "Ghosts," who are we to turn up our noses at some fun supernatural telly news?
