Is it better to be a TV series based on a movie or vice versa?


With so many TV series hitting the big screen lately (“Sex and the City,” “The X-Files”), ABC is attempting to right the balance.

The network has ordered a pilot for a “The Witches of Eastwick” TV series based on the 1987 movie that starred Susan Sarandon, Michelle Pfeiffer, Cher and Jack Nicholson, and it also is moving forward on an hourlong comedy drama based on the Jennifer Lopez-Ralph Fiennes romantic comedy “Maid in Manhattan.”

These both sound like lame ideas—what, “Charmed” has been off the air for so long that we need another TV trio of sexy witches?—but you never know. Who thought the “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” series would be any good?
