'Buffy the Vampire Slayer,' 'Jack Ryan' & More TV Shows Based on Movies
Many people know that Game of Thrones is based off of a series of books, as were The Handmaid's Tale and Gossip Girl. But there are many shows that actually came to life thanks to a previously successful movie or movie franchise.
Various films have spawned equally as successful (if not more so) television shows that have taken well-known characters and storylines to new, usually more dramatic, heights. Shows like Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan, 10 Things I Hate About You, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer all stem from films.
Scroll down for a look at those and others that made the move from the big to the small screen.
