Global Frequency Spoilers Page
Several "spoilers" had gone out for the Global Frequency television project. For details on the tidbits that have leaked, look below for series pilot information. You'll also see some details about the show's third episode which, of course, is not happening.

Based on the DC/Wildstorm comic book/graphic novel series created by Warren Ellis, this is how The WB describes the television adaptation:

Based on the suspenseful and action-packed graphic novel franchise, "Global Frequency" marks the dramatic television debut of successful producer Mark Burnett ("Survivor," "The Apprentice"). The Global Frequency is an independent, illegal, covert intelligence agency determined to prevent international politics from undermining the security of the global community. Led by the former NSA agent Miranda Zero, GF is everywhere and nowhere – and it's mankind's best defense against everything that occurs outside our peripheral vision. This marvel of brains and machinery is hacked into every satellite, mainframe, cell phone and database across the globe. With the help of her central command dispatcher, the feisty but brilliant Aleph, Zero is just a phone call away from tapping anyone anywhere to volunteer their skills to help save the world. GF's newest "recruit," suspended cop Sean Ronin, is paired with introverted Kate Finch, a mastermind of the scientific inner workings of the covert network. The most original conspiracy saga since "The X-Files," "Global Frequency" shows us that one person can make a difference in the battle against the dangers of the modern world. From Warner Bros. Television Production Inc. and Cloudbreak Entertainment with writer/executive producer John Rogers (upcoming film "Catwoman," "The Core") and director Nelson McCormick ("Alias," "Third Watch").

Other upcoming episode information (obviously not valid at this time, since they didn't go beyond the pilot stage):

  • Series creator Warren Ellis should be expected to write an episode for the series.
  • Ben Edlund (Angel) is writing the third episode.
  • Director Nelson McCormick apparently wants to do an adaptation of the comics' "Le Parkour" story.
  • There may be a digital skyscape created to represent London. Hrm.

Episode #1-1: Series Pilot
Air Date: March 2005

Written By: John Rogers
Directed By:
Nelson McCormick
Starring: Michelle Forbes (Miranda Zero), Aimee Garcia (Aleph), Josh Hopkins (Sean Ronin), Jenni Baird (Dr. Kate Finch)
Guest Stars: Brian Jensen (?)

Added 8/17: Some new details from the pilot, originating from the blog of Warren Ellis, can be seen on the main page of FrequencySite.

Added 8/8: We should know soon enough if Aleph will be sporting the familiar hairstyle seen in the series of graphic novel stories.

Added Summer 2004: Characters Aleph and Miranda Zero from the comics both figure in.
- Sean Ronin, a new recruit, picked up one of the Global Frequency cell phones, it seems accidentally. He always thought that the Frequency was an "urban legend.
- A man - who works for the Global Frequency - explodes. Sean doesn't flinch. Apparently he's used to being around dead bodies.
Aleph describes herself as "the nice one."
If the script direction is any indication, there will be a lot of playing around with the visuals to make Global Frequency a very unique television program.
The familiar Global Frequency logo (the circle in the square) does make appearances, again staying true to the comic series.
Aleph's sarcastic sense of humor figures prominently into the story as she guides Sean along.
Dr. Katrina Finch, another agent of the Frequency, doesn't take as well to dead bodies. Dr. Finch was a young genius, in University when she was fifteen. She has a background in particle physics, astrophysics, electrical engineering, biomechanical engineering, genetics, and bio-materials, among other things.
At least in the script pages that went out to casting, Miranda Zero does take part in the action in the pilot.
Miranda likes to drop names of contacts - she seemingly has contacts everywhere, which really does help her in getting the job done. Miranda also will make threats to ensure she gets what she wants, and judging from the response, people comply.
There's an immediate flirty rapport between Sean and Dr. Finch, who is called on to train him.
There is a man with a "chip" inside that makes him a "human bomb." No one expected the chip to last so long. It seems electric power and such feeds him, and he can make anything around him change its structure.
- L
ike the comic series, we will see people called in at the last instance to be picked up onto the Frequency. It really could feed the "it could be anybody" vibe.
