The rumors have been confirmed (by the man himself): Street Tech’s fave comics writer, Warren Ellis, confirmed today that the WB has bought the rights to his Global Frequency comic series. In Warren’s Bad Signal e-list, he writes:
I forget all the details and I’m freezing bloody cold in the pub, but as I remember the deal comes with a script commitment — my friend the screenwriter John Rogers is writing and developing — and I’m on as a consultant and producer. There will, of course, be necessary adaptations to the TV medium — that’s just the nature of the beast — but John is nailing the tone of the series admirably.
For those who aren’t familiar with GF, it’s a cool concept: a smart mob of far-flung agents are called, via cell phones, to do some piece of a secret agent job — it’s distributed crime fighting!
