The Water Cooler podcast team – Joey, Megan, and Clarence – put on their television studio mogul hats and dive into the business of translating films into successful television series. Before we jump into identifying a few properties we’d like to see as TV series, we take a step back and explore the mechanics behind what makes a successful film-to-TV-series jump. After the successes of Bates Motel, Hannibal, and Fargo, what lies within a film’s DNA that helps it make the shift to television? Is there a science to it?
Once you’re done listening to the podcast, we hope you’ll comment with your personal picks of films you’d like to see as TV series. We would love to hear what you think.
