There are some movies that just naturally lend themselves to becoming TV series. Others – meh! But they still get small screen treatment anyway – some are successful, others should have stayed on the cutting room floor. Let’s have a scooch through some movies that became a TV series and then you can tell me whether you thought they were a success or not.
The 1995 classic Clueless was an instant hit, thanks to the impeccable performances of Alicia Silverstone, Brittany Murphy, and Stacey Dash as Beverly Hills high school students. The film was, and still is, one perfect way to have a glimpse of teen life in the 90s. This chick-flick was remade into a TV series a year after its release. The TV series had the same cast except for Alicia Silverstone who was replaced by Rachel Blanchard. The show wasn't a flop, but it was a pale imitation of the original.
