The Modifyers is a rejected pilot for Nickelodeon produced by Chris Reccardi and Lynne Naylor.
The pilot revolves around Agent Xero, a special agent for a spy organization known as the Modifyers. Using her Master of Disguise abilities and a shapeshifting robotic sidekick Mole, she has been infiltrating the gang of the villainous Baron Vain in the guise of Perky Goth thief Lacey Shadows. After a clash over a stolen artifact, the All-Seeing Eye, with Vain's long suffering henchman Rat, she returns to base, but overlooks that she has been followed. She has to beat Rat to Vain's base first to try and protect her cover and manage to slip the Eye past both the villains. The pilot ends ominously as Xero loses her communication ring while making her way out of the base, which falls into the hands of Vain and Rat, her cover now exposed to the villains.
