FOX has unveiled a full trailer for its upcoming TV series “The Frankenstein Code“, which is a modern reimagining of the classic tale by Mary Shelley. The show follows a 75-year old man who is brutally murdered only to be brought back to life as a much younger man by two scientists.

Rob Kazinsky will play the main character, Jimmy Pritchard, with Dilshad Vadsaria and Adhir Kalyan playing the two scientists Mary and Otto Goodwin, respectively.

The trailer and a lengthy synopsis can be read below.

From executive producer/writer Rand Ravich (“Life,” “Crisis”) and executive producer Howard Gordon (“Homeland,” “24”) comes THE FRANKENSTEIN CODE, a modern reimagining of the Mary Shelley classic, about a man brought back to life by two scientists playing god.

Seventy-five-year-old JIMMY PRITCHARD (guest star Philip Baker Hall, “Modern Family,” “Magnolia”) 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 (Tim DeKay, “White Collar”), one of his three children. But death is surprisingly short for Jimmy, who is brought back to life by billionaire tech-genius twins MARY GOODWIN (Dilshad Vadsaria, “Revenge”) and her brother, OTTO (Adhir Kalyan, “Rules of Engagement”), founders of the social networking empire, Lookinglass.

Resurrected as a younger version of himself, with physical abilities of which he never dreamed, a re-animated Pritchard (Rob Kazinsky, “True Blood”) is given a second chance at life. What will he do with it? Will he seek vengeance against those who killed him? 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?

    Rob Kazinsky is awesome but i’m not sure about this show. i have a feeling it won’t even make it through a whole season. i hope i’m wrong.

      I think your right, giving the series the “Frankenstein” name was a mistake….I don’t think watchers will like that.
