* The second ''Film/MenInBlack'' movie blatantly disregarded the events of ''Men in Black: The Series'', which ended with the [=MIB=] organization exposed. Of course, the series blatantly disregarded the ending of the first ''Film/MenInBlack'' before that.

* In the late '90s, an attempt was made to develop a TV series for the Fox network based on ''Film/TheAdventuresOfBuckarooBanzaiAcrossTheEighthDimension'', to be titled ''Buckaroo Banzai: Ancient Secrets and New Mysteries''. The project was on the verge of shooting the pilot, when Fox pulled the plug. The reason given was that the [[ViewersAreGeniuses highly cerebral]] script was [[ViewersAreMorons too "dense"]] to be commercially successful. The only surviving material is a [=CGI=] promo trailer included on the [=DVD=] release of the movie. It was most likely that [[TheOtherDarrin new actors]] would have been cast in main character roles.

* ''The Paper Chase'', which ran for one year on network TV, then was later picked up on pay cable (one of the first such series) for an additional two years. The series was less brooding in tone than the movie, and allowed much greater character development, while also exploring some complex legal topics.

Added DiffLines:
* ''Series/{{Alice 1976}}'' was very loosely adapted from Creator/MartinScorsese's film ''Film/AliceDoesntLiveHereAnymore''.

* ''AlienatorsEvolutionContinues'' was the AnimatedAdaptation of the movie ''Film/{{Evolution}}'', picking up after the movie had ended, but working much better had one not actually '''''seen''''' said movie. Of course, since the movie wasn't exactly huge and the show didn't even make it to the end of its first season, this point is pretty much moot.

* ''Theatre/TheKingAndI'' has the short-lived 1970s sitcom ''Anna and the King'', not to be confused with [[Film/AnnaAndTheKing the 1999 movie of the same name]]. Featuring an American Anna (played by [[FakeAmerican British]] Samantha Eggar) and none of the RodgersAndHammerstein music, this didn't have much to do with ''The King And I'', other than the basic premise, Creator/YulBrynner reprising his role as King Mongkut, and the occasional recycling of dresses and jewelry from the movie.

* Probably the most successful example is ''Series/{{MASH}}''. Almost the entire ensemble was recast. Also, over the course of its run, it increasingly diverged from the irreverent tone of the [[Film/{{MASH}} movie]]. And yet, it is virtually unsurpassed in ratings. It's a prime example of AdaptationDisplacement as a result, as few remember the movie or [[Literature/{{MASH}} books]].

* ''WesternAnimation/AvengersAssemble'' was made to be intentionally more similar to the films than the other series (''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersUnitedTheyStand'', ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' other]] ''Anime/MarvelDiskWarsTheAvengers'') based on The Avengers (two of which predate the movie).

* ''[[Franchise/RoboCop1987 Robocop]]'' had ''two'' [[WesternAnimation/RoboCopTheAnimatedSeries a cartoon]] [[WesternAnimation/RobocopAlphaCommando versions]] (along with the usual scads of toys and other merchandising aimed at children} -- which seems a strange demographic for a movie that was rated "R" for its over-the-top violence, gore and near-constant [[ClusterFBomb dropping of the f-bomb]].
