Global Frequency: Background

Global 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.

The 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.

A 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.

In June 2005, a digital copy of the Global Frequency 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....
