A new trailer for Fox’s sci-fi action series Lookinglass has premiered, showing off some nice action and an interesting murder mystery.

This show looks like an interesting fit for Fox’s schedule, and was going by the name The Frankenstein Code up until a few weeks ago. With the rebranding, Fox has dropped a new trailer, which seems to play down the Frankenstein-y stuff and push on the more straight-up sci-fi action angle. Basically: An old cop is young again, and out to solve his own murder (and protect his son).

Here’s the show’s official synopsis:

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 two 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.

Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think:

Lookinglass is set to premiere on Fox in 2016.
