Comic Series Global Frequency Gets Pilot Commitment from Fox. Fox is staying in business with DC as the network has ordered a pilot for Warren Ellis’ comic Global Frequency. The series will be produced by Ellis along with Jerry Bruckheimer, Rockne S. O’Bannon, and Jonathan Littman.

According to Deadline, Fox will be producing a pilot based on the 12-issue mini-series published by DC Comics’ Wildstorm Publications. The series focuses on a secret global organization that solves crimes by recruiting 1,001 operatives who have different skill sets that are useful in the field. The organization is run by Miranda Zero, who picks an agent for a mission based on their location and expertise.

The pilot will be written by O’Bannon, who worked on shows like Farscape, Defiance, Cult, and Revolution. Warren’s last work RED was adapted into two films in 2010 and 2013.

The series was produced by Survivor producer Mark Burnett. The series featured Michelle Forbes as Miranda Zero, Josh Hopkins as Sean Flynn, Jenni Baird as Dr. Katrina Finch, and Aimee Garcia as Aleph. A second attempt was made by The CW in 2009, but the series never made it to fruition.
