FOX Plans Modern “Frankenstein” TV Series

FOX has given a put pilot commitment for a contemporary drama series based on Mary Shelley’s classic novel “Frankenstein”.

The “grounded sci-fi” take on the story follows a morally corrupt FBI agent named Adam Tremble whom is killed and brought back from the dead by an antisocial Internet billionaire and his bio-engineer twin sister.

Now, younger and stronger, Tremble deals with threats beyond the FBI’s capabilities along with his own lingering temptations.

“Homeland” and “Tyrant” executive producer Howard Gordon is teaming with “Life” and “Crisis” creator Rand Ravich on the project which they will both executive produce.
