On Monday’s Awards Daily TV Water Cooler podcast, we tackle the trend of translating films into television series. Some are smash audience and critical hits (Fargo, Hannibal). Some are total duds (MTVs Scream, in our humble opinion). Joey, Megan, and I discuss what makes a good film-to-TV translation. What qualities exist in a film’s DNA that spawn successful television?
Then, we each wear our studio exec hats and greenlight TV series of our own. Some of our choices dazzle. Some… Well… Some we just politely nod and move on. Join in the discussion by posting your own personal favorite films that you think would make great TV series. We’d love to hear what you think.
