The Show Of The Books

Adapting books to TV

Name Space:
Main
Page Type:

A book series is adapted into a TV series. Not just a TV Movie, but a regular weekly series about the characters. Unless the book series is already a Long Runner, this is probably going to Overtake The Series quite quickly, and become its own Alternate Continuity. In fact, it may not even use the books as anything other than a source of characters.

Rolling Updates, if I remember...

Compare The Film of the Book. Contrast Anime First.

Examples:

Adopted into Anime

Adopted into Live-Action TV

Adopted into Western Animation
