22 películas que se van a convertir en series de tv

Eliana Dockterman
Next year’s television shows may feel a bit familiar to audiences. With the success of shows like Fargo and Hannibal, more television networks than ever before are mining their film collections to find ideas for new series.

Perhaps it’s a sign of Hollywood’s lack of creativity that at least 22 television series based on old films are currently in the works. Fox, HBO, CBS and others are all hoping to draw audiences to remakes of old favorites likeBig and second-shots at less popular films likeMonster-in-Law. Though many of the projects have been greenlit, only time will tell how many actually make the leap from the big screen to the small.
<strong><i>Big</i> (Fox)</strong>

The TV show version of <i>Big</i>, from the creators of <i>Enlisted</i>, will be a limited series that delves into "what it means to be an adult and what it means to be a kid, and how in today's world those two things are more confused than ever."
<strong><i>Hitch</i> (Fox)</strong>

Will Smith, who starred as a love doctor in the movie version of <i>Hitch</i>, and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith will produce this workplace comedy about dating politics.
<strong><i>Scream</i> (MTV)</strong>

This 90s horror classic is getting a modern update: It will follow a spate of killings kicked off by a viral YouTube video. But if the TV version is anything like the movie, no actor on the show should make long-term plans.
<strong><i>Marley &amp; Me</i> (NBC)</strong>

Though the <i>Marley &amp; Me</i> movie may have been a tear-jerker, the proposed TV show will be a comedy. Picking up where the film left off, John, Jenny and their three children will be forced to adopt a new stray puppy — whom they name Marley, of course.
<strong><i>Bachelor Party</i> (ABC)</strong>

The writers have said the TV show, "loosely based" on the 1984 Tom Hanks movie about bachelor party debauchery, will be an anthology series in which each season focuses on a different wedding party and examines the relationships of various couples.
<strong><i>In Good Company</i> (CBS)</strong> <i>In Good Company</i> focuses on a middle-aged executive who must contend with a new boss who is both half his age and dating his daughter. Paul Weitz, who wrote the 2004 film, is onboard to write and executive produce the show.
<strong><i>Monster-in-Law</i> (Fox)</strong>

The 2005 comedy starring Jennifer Lopez and Jane Fonda will follow a happily married woman who must contend with her mother-in-law while preparing to welcome a baby.
<strong><i>The Devil's Advocate</i> (NBC)</strong>

The series, like the Keanu Reeves and Al Pacino film, will center on a public defender who joins a law firm that is run by the devil.
<strong><i>Limitless</i> (CBS)</strong>

Bradley Cooper, who starred in the action film, will executive produce the <i>Limitless</i> TV series about a writer who is able to access 100% of his brain on a mysterious drug called NZT.
<strong><i>Real Genius</i> (NBC)</strong>

A present-day reboot of the cult Val Kilmer film, <i>Real Genius</i> will be a workplace comedy about the relationship between a physics legend and his naive coworker.
<strong><i>Rush Hour</i> (CBS)</strong>

The TV show version of <i>Rush Hour</i> will again pair up a play-by-the-rules Hong Kong police officer and a rebellious black Los Angeles cop in a procedural-type show.
<strong><i>The Illusionist</i> (CW)</strong>

The Edward Norton film may have been set in 1889 Vienna, but the TV adaptation will take place in turn-of-the-century New York. It will follow a famous illusionist who returns home from prison to find his wife married to the mob boss who framed him for a crime.
<strong><i>Uncle Buck</i> (ABC)</strong>

Like the 1980s John Hughes movie starring John Candy, <i>Uncle Buck</i> in its TV show form will focus on a man who must learn to grow up by taking care of his brother's kids.
<strong><i>12 Monkeys</i> (SyFy)</strong>

Set to premiere January 19, the series features a man sent back from the future to prevent a plague that will destroy mankind.
<strong><i>The Odd Couple</i> (CBS)</strong>

Matthew Perry and Thomas Lennon star in this remake of the classic Neil Simon play/film/show about a two recently divorced men and roommates — one messy and one a neat freak.
<strong><i>School of Rock</i> (Nickelodeon)</strong>

Set to air on Nickelodeon, <i>School of Rock</i> will follow a down-on-his-luck musician who pretends to be a substitute teacher at a prep school.
<strong><i>Shooter</i> (TNT)</strong>

Mark Wahlberg, who starred in the conspiracy thriller film, will produce the TV adaptation about a sharpshooter who is framed for murder.
<strong><i>Ashecliffe</i>, a prequel to <i>Shutter Island</i> (HBO)</strong>

Dennis Lehane, author of the novel <i>Shutter Island</i> upon which the Martin Scorsese film is based, will pen a prequel called Ashecliffe that would explore the eerie hospital's past before Leonardo DiCaprio's character in the film ever visited. Scorcese is reportedly in talks to direct the pilot.
<strong><i>The Truman Show</i> (Paramount)</strong>

Paramount Pictures has begun to develop a <i>Truman Show</i> TV series about a man unknowingly living in a semi-scripted reality show — a concept that's become all-the-more relevant in the age of hacks, shrinking privacy, over-sharing and social media.
