Today Warren Ellis confirmed via his Bad Signal Mailing List that a television series based on "Global Frequency" has been greenlit by the WB in the United States. As previously mentioned, the series was optioned in 2003 with a script being worked on by John Rogers. Ellis said of Rogers' work, "There will, of course, be necessary adaptations to the TV medium -- that's just the nature of the beast -- but John is nailing the tone of the series admirably."
The following text came from Variety and was reprinted in Ellis' newsletter.
Over at the WB, greenlit dramas include... Mark Burnett's take on the DC Comics title "Global Frequency"...
...which Burnett will exec produce along with John Rogers ("The Core"), who's writing the pilot (Daily Variety, Oct. 21).
Actioner revolves around a shadowy figure named Miranda Zero, who starts a top-secret worldwide independent defense intelligence organization.
Warren Ellis created the comic book, which comes from the DC Comics imprint Wildstorm. "Global Frequency" reps the first Wildstorm title to be developed into a feature or TV project since DC acquired the company five years ago.
DC Comics senior VP of creative affairs Gregory Noveck, who joined the company in December, has been looking to expand synergies with parent Warner Bros.' film and TV divisions.
