Warren Ellis’ Global Frequency Coming to The CW

Production Weekly tweeted that The CW is again looking to adapt Warren Ellis’ comic book “Global Frequency” with Scott Nimerfro (“Pushing Daisies”) writing the pilot.

Ellis, himself, reacted to the tweet on his official website:

I haven’t been cleared to comment yet, so I can’t really add anything to this. 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.

Anyway. Yes. Shouldn’t say any more until I get the nod from the studio. But yes.

Mark Burnett and The WB (before it became The CW) previously attempted to adapt the comic in 2005 with Michelle Forbes playing Miranda Zero, Josh Hopkins as Sean Flynn, Jenni Baird as Dr. Katrina Finch and Aimee Garcia as Aleph. The pilot leaked onto the internet in June of 2005 which was reportedly one of the reasons Warner Bros. killed the project.

The following is how WildStorm describes the title:

Miranda Zero, the mysterious leader/benefactor/recruiter of Global Frequency is a woman with a mission. She saves people. She and 1,000 others make up the most diverse team of specialists the planet has ever seen. Their job? To save the world, usually before anyone else notices there’s a problem.
