‘Global Frequency’ back to TV?
Global Frequency, the DC/Wildstorm comic, might be back in play as a TV series.
You may remember that in 2005, Mark Burnett (producer of Survivor) and John Rogers (who would go on to write the comic Blue Beetle and create the show Leverage) created a pilot for the WB. The pilot wasn’t picked up; however, it got leaked to the Interwebs and became the most watched pilot that never got picked up.
Now the industry magazine Production Weekly has just posted the following on Twitter: The CW will again try to adapt Warren Ellis’ comic book “Global Frequency,” this time Scott Nimerfro will script the pilot. Scott Nimerfro has written for Star Trek: Voyager, Tales From The Crypt, Perversions Of Science, The Outer Limits, Stargate: Atlantis, and Pushing Daisies, and was an associate producer on the X-Men movie.
Warren Ellis, creator of Global Frequency, sent out an email with the headline “I couldn’t possibly comment”.
We understand. And we couldn’t possibly embed a video with footage from the original Global Frequency pilot that should never have been released out on the Internet. That would be wrong.
Here’s hoping Michelle Forbes is still available.
