After the early success of Fox and Warner Bros. Television's Gotham, the network and studio are teaming up once again for another DC Comics property, Global Frequency, with Jerry Bruckheimer serving as executive producer.
Fox has issued a pilot production commitment for Global Frequency, which is based on the 12-issue limited comic book series by Warren Ellis (Red). The story chronicles the inner workings of an organization known as The Global Frequency, a privatized crime-fighting unit that receives funding from around the world to solve the crimes that the police cannot.
Rockne S. O'Bannon, who created beloved sci-fi shows such as Farscape and Defiance, is writing the pilot script, and he will also serve as an executive producer alongside Jerry Bruckheimer, Warren Ellis and Jonathan Littman, with KristieAnne Reed serving as co-executive producer.
DC Entertainment produced four pilots earlier this year, Gotham, The Flash, Constantine, which Rockne S. O'Bannon currently writes for, and IZombie, all of which were given series orders. Both Gotham and The Flash were already given full-season orders, although a decision hasn't been made on Constantine yet, with IZombie debuting in mid-season.
Warner Bros. Television has tried to bring Global Frequency to the small screen before, with a 2005 pilot starring Michelle Forbes and Josh Hopkins that didn't go to series. Another script was developed in 2009 at The CW, but that didn't move forward either.
