A drama series that’s coming up on Fox has been renamed — again. The show that has been known as “The Frankenstein Code” will be called “Lookinglass,” Deadline.com reports.
“The producers of ‘The Frankenstein Code’ (originally ‘Frankenstein’) had been looking to distance themselves from the famous moniker, stressing the fact that the series only takes inspiration from the basic Mary Shelley mythology of a man brought back to life by scientists playing god,” the story reports.
The show is slated to roll out midseason on Fox.
“While changing titles in the pilot process is very common, changing the names of new series after the upfronts, in the final weeks/months leading to their launch is more unusual,” Deadline notes. “We’ve had several of those this year, NBC’s ‘Odyssey,’ which became ‘American Odyssey’ just before its midseason bow, and three (!) new shows for next season, which have been renamed this summer, ‘Lookinglass,’ NBC fall comedy ‘Truth Be Told’ (previously ‘People Are Talking’) and ABC fall drama ‘Blood and Oil’ (fka ‘Oil’).
