Nowadays, movie adaptations are becoming wildly popular.
If you think about it, this is turning into the decade of movies that were turned into TV shows: Bates Motel, Fargo, About a Boy, and Bad Teacher are a few recent examples that prove there’s a definite trend happening here. But this has really been a trend that has been developing slowly since the 1970’s or so.
This list is by no means complete. In fact, we had a really hard time just trying to cut our list down to a reasonable number. We’ve simply just chosen some of the most notable adaptations, including Bad Teacher. Be sure to sound off in the comments below about which TV shows based on movies are your favorites (and whether they’re on our list or not)!
