Back in May, we saw the first trailer for this modern reimagining of the Mary Shelley classic, but at the time it was titled The Frankenstein Code. Shortly after, it was renamed Lookinglass. Now, Fox has chosen to call it, Second Chance. Let's see if it gets one of those after it makes its debut this January.
Seventy-five-year-old Jimmy Pritchard (guest star 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 (Tim DeKay), 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) and her brother, Otto (Adhir Kalyan), 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) 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?
Check out the trailer below.
Second Chance will debut Wednesday, January 13 on Fox.
