The Notorious Seven and The Wonder Cabinet
matta2k posted a topic in Ten Thirteen and BeyondNow that I have a video capture card for my computer I can start backing up old VHS tapes. I came across two unsold pilots by Glen Morgan & James Wong. Of the two, The Notorious Seven is my favorite. It has a more interesting premise than The Wonder Cabinet, which is just an X-Files rip off. Although maybe over time TWC would have developed its own mythology to set it apart. Remember, these ARE captured from very old VHS tapes so don't expect great quality video. The Notorious Seven: https://www.multiupload.com/MEZHCTGJNR The City's underworld kingpin Dom Diablo (Ben Gazzara) assassinates his brother and frames his nephew, Eddie Alighieri (Justin Louis), for the crime. Incarcerated, Eddie plots with another prisoner (Roscoe Lee Browne) his escape and revenge against Dom Diablo and his uncle's henchmen, The Notorious Seven. Series is done in a flamboyant comic-book/noir style similar to Dick Tracy. The Wonder Cabinet: https://www.multiupload.com/CMH2QXCP6X Gordon Wayne (James Morrison) is a heart surgeon haunted by a past failure. Sarah Coleman (Poppy Montgomery) is a medical student who falls out of favor with her professors after challenging the medical establishment. Kevin Spitz (Currie Graham) is a neurosurgeon with shaky ethics. The three of them are hired by the mysterious Mr. Swissky (Kim Coates) to investigate biological anomalies and malformations for an institution called Der Wunderkammern, which believes that mankind's supposed improvements throughout this century have knocked nature out of balance...and that nature might start fighting back. -- IMDB
The Wonder Cabinet
The Old Man posted a topic in Ten Thirteen and BeyondWay back in the 1700s, wealthy men had rooms called "wonder cabinets", which were like their own private museums filled with all kinds of scientific curiosities. Fast forward to present time, where an institute in Philadelphia -- Der Wunderkammern -- that believes that mankind's supposed improvements throughout this century have knocked Nature out of balance... and Nature might be starting to fight back (witness the Ebola virus, AIDS, etc.) It is run by an unseen, wealthy "philanthropist", Mr. Swissky, who hires three people to investigate biological anomalies and monstrosities -- in this episode, the investigation revolves around a man with two heads. These lucky three include: Dr. Gordon Wayne, early 40s, a world-renowned heart surgeon who's haunted by a past failure (presently selling heart equipment); Sarah Coleman, 24, a brainy medical student who falls out of favour with her profs because she challenges the establishment; and Dr. Kevin Spitz, 30ish, a neurosurgeon with shaky ethics. The pilot began filming on March 22, 1999. Morgan & Wong were in the midsts of shooting their movie, "Flight 180" (now Final Destination) when they got the phone call informing them that the series was NOT picked up.
