What would you do if you were given a second chance at life? That is the premise behind FOX’s new series ‘The Frankenstein Code’. Jimmy Pritchard, a seventy-five year old man, is not the best guy. He’s a fired ex-cop, a womanizer, an alcoholic, work obsessed jerk and a poor excuse for a husband, father. Jimmy’s life is about to come to an end when he accidentally walks in on a robbery at his kid’s house. Jimmy isn’t down long when Dr. Marry Goodwin (Mary Goodwin) and her twin brother Dr. Otto Goodwin (Adhir Kalyan) resurrect him. Jimmy is brought back to life in a new, younger body, with borderline super-human powers. He now has a shot at living a better life, but what will he do with it?
Older Jimmy is played by ‘Modern Family’ actor Phillip Baker Hall, his younger form was played by Rob Kazinsky of ‘True Blood’. White Collar’s Tim DeKay, Ciara Bravo (Jinxed), Tiffany Lang (Friday Night Lights) and Heather D. Benoit make up the remaining cast of ‘The Frankenstein Code’. ‘The Frankenstein Code’ was written by Rand Ravich and Howard Gordon. The series is directed by Hugh Fitzpatrick, who served as co-executive producer of the series ‘Tyrant’.
‘The Frankenstein Code’ will join the list of FOX’s new mid-season lineup.
