Apparently hoping the third title will be a charm, Fox has renamed its upcoming sci-fi action drama "The Frankenstein Code."
It's now called "Lookinglass," which is neither "looking lass" nor a (direct) nod to the Lewis Carroll novel "Through the Looking-Glass." Instead, it's reference to the Lookinglass Project, the ground-breaking science/tech company at the heart of the series. "The Frankenstein Code" was originally called simply "Frankenstein."
A modern reimagining of the Mary Shelley classic, the series centers on 75-year-old Jimmy Pritchard (guest star Jimmy Pritchard), who was forced resign as sheriff of Los Angeles County amid a corruption scandal. Some 15 years later, he’s killed when he stumbles upon a robbery at the home of his son, FBI Agent Duval Pritchard (Tim DeKay). However, that’s not the end for Jimmy, who’s resurrected as a younger version of himself (Rob Kazinsky) by billionaire tech-genius twins Mary Goodwin (Dilshad Vadsaria) and Otto Goodwin (Adhir Kalyan). With a new outlook on life, and physical abilities beyond his dreams, Pritchard is given a second chance. But what will he do with it?
"Lookinglass" premieres in 2016 on Fox.
