Have you ever come out of a movie theater wanting more? If only the writers and producers could explore the plot and characters in greater detail. There are hurdles involved in turning a movie into a TV series, but nothing is impossible if there’s an audience begging for it. The shift from the movies to TV (and vice versa) is not unheard of. Some of the transitions from big to little screen have been highly successful. Here are 9 movies we would love to see further explored as TV series.
1. The Royal Tenenbaums Would Make a Great TV Show
This movie is remembered for its unique dialog, memorable characters and interesting storyline. The movie’s plot revolved around the return of patriarch “Royal” and his revelation about his battle with cancer. A series with a prequel set before the return of Royal would be a welcome addition to our daily dose of TV.
2. Ghostbusters The Series
One film with definite episodic potential is Ghostbusters, simply because it is impossible to run out of ghost plots. Indeed, it would be interesting to see the team catch a series of ghosts in a buildup to a mega ghost -catching season finale. Will it grab eyeballs? Well, Ghostbusters III is in the works, so a TV spin-off isn’t out of the question.
