It’s learned that Rockne S. O’Bannon, known for Farscape and Defiance, will be writing the TV adaptation of the Warren Ellis DC Comics Wildstorm/Vertigo comic book, Global Frequency.
The series is being developed by Jerry Bruckheimer, on board as producer and executive producer, for FOX TV.
Per Deadline, Global Frequency is about a privately funded crime-fighting operation that uses worldwide crowd-sourcing to solve crimes the police cannot.
It’s also stated Jonathan Littman, Warren Ellis and O’Bannon will executive produce, and Kristie Anne Reed will co-executive produce.
Rockne S. O’Bannon scripted the pilot episodes for Constantine and V, and also wrote episodes of Revolution.
Global Frequency saw 12 issues published from 2002-2004 by DC’s Wilstorm line; subsequent trade paper back collected editions were then published under Vertigo.
