What movies do you think could have been made into tv shows?

What movie do you feel could have been made into a really good tv show if it never ended up becoming a film? Hope the question makes sense, it's late and I couldn't think how to word it properly

    Contagion (2011) - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1598778/

    - How do people react when there is World Wide Outbreak? How Do you contain it? Who are the people who do the job of containing ? This is a very scary subject. It didn't seem like 106 mins was enough time to answer these questions. The director and the ensemble cast are all Excellent. The characters were all really interesting. But the whole movie was sub-plots. I wanted to know more about the characters and their back stories. I think it would make an interesting Mini-Series or TV Drama.

    Hey Liam! Great Question.

  • It makes sense. :)

    I think a movie like The Town as a series could be really intense every week, also Shaun of the Dead as a half hour zombie comedy I think would be really awesome and successful. The Walking Dead is an hour long drama that's already proved to be really good. I think lately TV shows have been so great and the sheer production quality of things like Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad is just proving how many barriers they can break no matter how big the scale so any movie if it's interesting enough could work as a TV show. If there's demand they make it work.

    Nice q, Liam.

    great question big dog

    there's a lot of comedy movies that would make great sitcoms:

    The Big Lebowski

    Dazed and Confused


    Pineapple Express



    Goodfellas (only because there is supposedly a TV show in the works for it)

    Zodiac (every week, constantly looking for one killer)

    Inception (a new person's mind to invade every week!)


    Scream (every season finale would reveal a different killer)
