THR reports that CW has put in a pilot order for the Supernatural spin-off, Supernatural: Tribes. In addition, the network is also going forward with their iZombie pilot, based on the DC comic book.
Supernatural: Tribes is reportedly set in Chicago and concerns "clashing hunter and monster cultures. Andrew Dabb, a veteran of Supernatural, is writing the pilot script.
iZombie is reportedly "a supernatural crime procedural that centers on a med student-turned-zombie who takes a job in the coroner's office to gain access to the brains she must reluctantly eat to maintain her humanity. But with each brain she consumes, she inherits the corpse's memories, and with the help of her medical examiner boss and a police detective, she solves homicide cases in order to quiet the disturbing voices in her head." The pilot script is being written by Veronica Mars' Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero.
