As Seen on TV: Upcoming Films Based on Television Shows

Recycling where possible is sometimes a good thing, because when you are completed by using a product, you can extend its life circuit by creating something that looks slightly newer. Really like buying one and having a second free. By simply buffing up an old dresser and slapping a coat of paint on it, you’re offering it a new lease of life. pinoy tv tfc

This line of thinking can also work with tv set shows. You take a popular and beloved television set series and revamp it into a movie. You bring in new actors, a new director, an updated history line, and a sentimental audience hungry for a cinematic time machine that can transport it again to a simpler time, and you ostensibly have a recipe for a slam-dunk.

Sometimes you need to do: Discover “The Muppet Movie, inches “The Fugitive” and “The Brady Bunch Movie. inch At other times you don’t, as was the case with “The Avengers” and “Land of the Lost, ” for example. More often than not, however, films born away of tv set shows do not fare well at the box office, because they often fail to satisfy the expectations of their target audience. Sometimes the studios overestimate the public’s interest in seeing a specific television set property resurrected. However, for each and every nine “Bewitched” videos produced, there’s one “The Brady Bunch Movie, inch and as long as Hollywood seems to assume that one out of five isn’t so bad, television set shows will continue to be remade into movies for the foreseeable future. To underscore that point, following is a brief set of upcoming movies that are based on tv set shows.

“Baywatch” (U. S i9000. release date 2013, Paramount)

Even people who feel that “Mitch Buchanan” is the name of an unfamiliar sibling of a right-wing political commentator are familiar with the orange bikinis and the images of toned, tanned bodies using slow motion that identified this show. This tv set behemoth, starring David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson, happened to run for 10 years from 1989 to 1999. That was a huge, international success. The film based upon the series has recently been in development since 2005, but it is finally showing real indications of life. The tv set series was an unintentionally funny drama, and the movie has been billed as a comedy, so it will be interesting to see how it plays away with audiences. Several tv set dramas such as “Starsky & Hutch” and “21 Jump Street” have recently been remade as comedies, often with lackluster results. “Night at the Museum” copy writer Robert Ben Garant is rumored to be helming the production. Justin Timberlake’s name has been threw about as a possible member of the players, and The Hoff has assured his fans that he will be reprising his original TV role in the upcoming film.

“CHiPs” (U. S. release date 2013, Warner Brothers)

From the time Officers Jon and Ponch-and then Officers Charlie and Jon, then Representatives Bobby and Ponch, and finally, Probie Officer Generic and Ponch-rode off into the California Highway Patrol sunset for the previous time, fans of the low-key but popular police officer show have wondered out loud among themselves and on television set forums if a theatrical version of the TV show detailing the daily workings of the California Highway Patrol could made. Their prayers-or fears-have been answered. The TELEVISION SET series, which ran from 1977 to 1983 and turned its original celebrities, Larry “Jon” Wilcox and Erik “Ponch” Estrada, into instant pinup boys, was pretty tame compared to other cop shows, even those airing at that time. None of the officers ever really taken their guns, and challenges with suspects were quite mild. The film is slated for a summertime release, meaning that we can most certainly expect amazing chase scenes and forceful car crashes. Wilmer Valderrama is slated to play the role of Ponch. Veteran tv set showrunners Symbol Torgove and Paul Kaplan (George Lopez, “Just Blast Me, ” “Spin City”) will be writing the script.
