Fox is giving The Frankenstein Code a minor makeover before its launch in 2016. The network has decided to get rid of the show’s title, replacing it with a new title: Lookinglass. Fox didn’t provide any details on why the titled was changed (although the show’s synopsis references ‘Lookinglass’), nor did it confirm the show’s actual premiere date. For now, all we know is that it will debut in 2016.

The series is a modern day twist on Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein horror story and is executive produced by Rand Ravich, Howard Gordon, Brad Turner, Donald Todd, and Michael Cuesta. The cast is led by Rob Kazinsky (Jimmy Pritchard) and includes Dilshad Vadsaria (Mary Goodwin), Adhir Kalyan (Otto), Tim DeKay (Duval Pritchard), and Ciara Bravo (Gracie Pritchard). Philip Baker Hall guest stars.

The Plot:

Seventy-five-year-old Jimmy Pritchard (Philip Baker Hall) is a shell of his former self. A drinker, a womanizer and a father who always put work before family, Pritchard was forced to resign as L.A. County Sheriff for corrupt conduct more than a decade ago. Now, some 15 unkind years later, he is killed when he stumbles upon a robbery at the home of FBI Agent Duval Pritchard, one of his two children. But death is surprisingly short for Jimmy, who is brought back to life by billionaire tech-genius twins Mary Goodwin and her brother, Otto, founders of the social networking empire, Lookinglass.

Resurrected as a younger, better version of himself, with physical abilities of which he never dreamed, a re-animated Pritchard is given a second chance at life. What will he do with it? Will he try to repair the damage he did to his family? Will he embrace a new sense of purpose or fall prey to old temptations?
