The CW has given pilot orders to dramas Identity, from Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, Jane the Virgin, from Jennie Snyder Urman, and iZombie from Rob Thomas, TVGuide.com has learned.
In Identity, when a young woman in need of a transplant learns she is related to a powerful family whose son is her only hope for a donor organ, the CIA approaches her to investigate the family's involvement in domestic terrorism and to infiltrate their rarified world. Her loyalty, morality and ethics are tested as she's forced to slowly build a case against the family who saved her life. Sleepy Hollow's Kurtzman and Orci will executive-produce with The Good Wife's Corinne Brinkerhoff, who will also write. Heather Kadin, Rob Golenberg and Alon Aranya are also attached as executive producers.

Adapted from the successful Venezuelan telenovela, Jane the Virgin takes a look at a series of surprising and unforeseen events that causes a hardworking, religious young Latina woman to be accidentally artificially inseminated. 90210's Urman, who created The CW's short-lived Emily Owens, M.D., will write and executive-produce with Ben Silverman, Gary Pearl and Jorge Granier.
Based on DC Comics' series, iZombie is a supernatural crime procedural about a med student-turned-zombie who takes a job in the coroner's office to obtain the brains she must eat to maintain her humanity. However, with every brain she consumes, she also inherits the corpse's memories. In order to silence those disturbing voices in her head, she solves homicide cases along with her medical examiner boss and a police detective. Veronica Mars' Thomas and Diane Ruggiero will write and executive-produce with Danielle Stokdyk and Dan Etheridge.
The three dramas join previously order pilots for Arrow spin-off The Flash and Supernatural spin-off Supernatural: Tribes.
