The CW Network is taking another stab at adapting the Warren Ellis comic for the small screen.
This isn’t the first time Warren Ellis’s Global Frequency has been adapted for television, or even the first time by CW. In fact, CW, when it was known as The WB, even produced a pilot back in 2005 starring Michelle Forbes of True Blood and Battlestar Galactica fame as Miranda Zero, the leader of Global Frequency, a top secret organization of individuals with unique skills dedicated to resolving secret crisises.
However, despite support from fans, the show never made it to the air. If at first you don’t succeed…
Not much is known about the adaptation other than that writer Scott Nimerfro is attached to the project, and that it is confirmed as being in the works by Ellis himself, who said:
"I’ve spoken briefly to Scott Nimerfro — by which I mean I threatened to have him stabbed, and he thanked me and told me a funny story about how he’s had worse threats — and he is Okay."
It also appears that John Rogers, who was in charge of the original attempt, will not be involved with the current adaptation due to his involvement with his own series on TNT, Leverage, though he wishes the project well.
