Storyline

The Global Frequency is an independent, illegal, covert intelligence agency determined to prevent international politics from undermining the security of the global community. Led by the former NSA agent Miranda Zero, GF is everywhere and nowhere - and it's mankind's best defense against everything that occurs outside our peripheral vision. This marvel of brains and machinery is hacked into every satellite, mainframe, cell phone and database across the globe. With the help of her central command dispatcher, the feisty but brilliant Aleph, Zero is just a phone call away from tapping anyone anywhere to volunteer their skills to help save the world. GF's newest "recruit," suspended cop Sean Flynn, is paired with introverted Kate Finch, a mastermind of the scientific inner workings of the covert network. Written by CaptainStigmata

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 »

I must have seen a different pilot than other reviewers
1 December 2010 | by (Tulsa, OK, USA) – See all my reviews

I find the glowing reviews of other reviewers difficult to understand. I absolutely love the original comics of Global Frequency. However, this pilot is a weak shadow of the source material. Specifically, the actress playing Miranda Zero lacked energy and was completely uninteresting. In addition, the characters had an almost "Fringe-like" ability to remember the one crucial piece of 30-year-old information in a matter of seconds. In essence, they are walking, talking deus ex machinae.

I completely understand why WB chose not to proceed with the series.

I'm glad someone else is writing a new pilot.
