Frequency was a television project based on Warren
Ellis' popular graphic novel franchise of the same name.
A pilot episode was produced and completed and the show
was scheduled to premiere in the Spring of 2005 on the WB
television network. The series was executive produced and
had a pilot written by John Rogers (The Core,
Catwoman, Transformers), with many other high-profile
names attached on the production staff, including Mark
Burnett (Survivor), Diego Gutierrez (Buffy
the Vampire Slayer), Ben Edlund (Angel, The
Tick), and David Slack (Teen Titans).
Nelson McCormick (Alias) directed the series
pilot starred Michelle Forbes (Star Trek: The
Next Generation, 24) in the part she was born to play,
the enigmatic Miranda Zero. Also on the Frequency were
Aimee Garcia (All About The Andersons) as Aleph,
Josh Hopkins (Ally McBeal, Pepper Dennis) as
Sean Flynn, and Jenni Baird (All Saints) as
Dr. Katrina Finch.
change in network management altered the plans for Global
Frequency. While a 13-episode midseason order seemed
to be a lock, and a WB logline for the show was released,
it seemed in late 2004 that Global Frequency would
never be seen and there would be no more filming beyond
the initial pilot episode.
June 2005, a digital copy of the Global
pilot episode made its way onto the Internet. No, we can't
tell you where; we don't condone illegal downloading around
here, even though we do promise that if you see it, you'll
probably like it. The pilot leak achieved international
attention and as of this writing, there is still hope that
there is a future for Global Frequency on television....
