Storyline

Suspended police detective Sean Flynn is having a bad day. However, things get interesting when he finds a half-dissolved corpse by accident and decides to pick up a ringing cellphone next to the dead man. Over the phone, he is introduced to The Global Frequency, a subject of a popular conspiracy theory that claims that GF is a secret rogue intelligence agency that answers to no one. It turns out that this is quite true when it's no nonsense boss, former NSA agent and martial arts expert Miranda Zero, introduces herself to Sean and asks for his help. Her agency's sole goal is to protect the world from global threats that are too scary for the general public to know anything about, so GF operates on a strict need to know basis. Whenever someone who's deemed trustworthy is close and can help with the case, they are immediately contacted by GF's no. 2 and Miranda's right hand woman Aleph, who works as the organization's operator. Now it's Sean's chance to help. His natural detective ...

Trivia

After viewing the pilot, executives at the WB television channel decided not to put the series into production and it was shelved. The pilot only saw the light of day when it was "leaked" onto the Internet and distributed using the Bittorrent protocol (incidentally the first time an unaired pilot television program was released to the public in this way). Despite campaigning from fans, the WB stuck by the decision to pass on the series. See more »

Goofs

When the guards riddle the back wall of the elevator with bullets, the metal around "bullet holes" is bent inward, toward the shooters, making it clear that the "bullet holes" were punched from the other side using squibs. See more »

Everything good goes away
7 December 2006 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

I have one question. Why do TV networks let something as good as this pass them by? The pilot was never aired, but it leaked out on the internet somehow and are know spreading like a wildfire. Ironically it seems that this alone can actually save the series. The response has been so massive I don't see how they can ignore it.

I found the Global Frequency pilot by chance and only watched it because I've read the comics (Warren Ellis) by the same name which I liked a lot. It is seldom you come across something like this only to hear that the bulk heads in the media industry can't recognize a goldmine when they see one. Get the word out there. This is good stuff.
