Remember the tragic tale of FRANKENSTEIN? Victor Frankenstein was seeking answers within the scientific realm and he created a living man/monster from a variety of dead body parts. His amazing achievement eventually lead to his own demise. Fast forward to today and FRANKENSTEIN is coming to TV!
Fox has announced that they are developing a television series pilot to be titled FRANKENSTEIN. However from the synopsis that is given, it appears that this will not be a retelling of the classic.
Being dubbed as a grounded sci-fi drama by Deadline, Howard Gordon and Rand Ravich are executive producing with Ravich also writing.
Both producers have experience with working in the Horror/sci-fi genres. Ravich co-wrote CANDYMAN: FAREWELL TO THE FLESH and Gordon was a producer on THE X-FILES and BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER.
“Frankenstein centers on Adam Tremble, a morally corrupt FBI agent who is given a second chance at life when he is brought back from the dead. Now younger and stronger, Tremble will have to choose between his old temptations and his new sense of purpose — dealing with threats beyond the FBI’s capabilities. All the while navigating the complicated relationship with his “creators”: an antisocial Internet billionaire and his bio-engineer twin sister.”
