Fox has renamed “The Frankenstein Code” — again.

The drama starring Rob Kazinsky (“True Blood”), which was originally called “Frankenstein” in the working-title stage, will now launch next year as “Lookinglass.”

“Lookinglass” follows a disgraced, 75-year-old ex-sheriff whose life ends at the hands of corrupt cops. He’s brought back to life and given a second chance by a pair of young tech scientists — twins Otto (Adhir Kalyan) and Mary (Dilshad Vadsaria) — as a 35-year-old (Kazinsky) with unpredictable near-superhuman abilities.

The scientists’ company name is Lookinglass, hence the appropriate new title.

Producers for the second-chance drama have been steadily distancing themselves from the “Frankenstein” moniker, as the show’s sci-fi, parts-to-person concept is clearly influenced by Mary Shelley‘s novel and its many on-screen adaptations, but otherwise unrelated.

“Lookinglass,” which also stars Tim DeKay, Philip Baker Hall and Ciara Bravo, will premiere in 2016 on Fox.
