Farscape Creator Pens “Global Frequency”

Following their success with “Gotham,” FOX and Warner Bros. Television are re-teaming for “Global Frequency,” another DC Comics series adaptation which Jerry Bruckheimer will executive produce.

A pilot production commitment has been handed out for the show which will chronicle the inner workings of an organization known as The Global Frequency, a privatized crime-fighting unit that receives funding from around the world to solve the crimes that the police cannot.

“Farscape” creator Rockne S. O’Bannon is penning the pilot script based on “RED” creator Warren Ellis’ twelve-issue limited comic book series. The pair, Bruckheimer, and Jonathan Littman will all executive produce.

This will mark the third attempt at a TV series based on the property following a failed pilot in 2005 starring Michelle Forbes and Josh Hopkins, and a version on The CW in 2009 that only made it to script stage.
