The CW is taking another shot at adapting Warren Ellis’ Global Frequency for television, according to Production Weekly via Twitter.  Scott Nimerfro, producer, co-producer, and writer of acclaimed series Pushing Daisies, was been assigned to script the pilot. 


Ellis confirmed the basics on his blog.  “I’ve spoken briefly to Scott Nimerfro – by which I mean I threatened to have him stabbed, and he thanked me and told me a funny story about how he’s had worse threats –and he is Okay,” Ellis wrote.


CW precursor WB had a Global Frequency series in development in 2004 (see “Global Frequency on the WB”).  A pilot was shot but never aired.
