The Frankenstein Code Drama Ordered to Series at Fox

Frankenstein Code Series Order Fox

It’s alive!

Fox has greenlit The Frankenstein Code, a modern-day retelling of the famous Gothic tale, TVLine has learned.

The drama follows Jimmy Pritchard (played by Rob Kazinsky EastEnders/True Blood), a morally corrupt retired cop who is given a second chance at life when he is brought back from the dead. Now younger and stronger, Pritchard will have to choose between his old temptations and his new sense of purpose.

Rand Ravich (Crisis), who wrote the pilot, will executive-produce alongside Homeland‘s Howard Gordon and Michael Cuesta and Twentieth Century Fox TV.

    Meh. If Hollywood is going to do yet another take on the Frankenstein story I’d prefer to see one based on Dean Koontz’s Frankenstein books. They made a TV movie based on his concept and it was so bad he walked away from it but the books were, IMO, brilliant.

    Tim DeKay – I’m in!

    It sounds alright but i’m done watching network TV shows until they have been renewed for a season 2.
    Got burned by SOOOOOO many shows being cancelled but just to name a few recent ones? Almost Human (Fox) screwed me, and Forever (ABC) was just cancelled which sucks.

    In another words – how to take a great story and make it a boring one.
