TV shows based on films are nothing new, and although many are cynical cash grabs that disappear after a few seasons, a few have transcended their material and become great shows in their own right (see: "M*A*S*H*"). But that ratio hasn't stopped Hollywood from continuing to try, and with shows coming up based on "The Transporter," "Taken" and "The Kids Are All Right" you can now throw one more onto the pile.
TV Guide is reporting that Lifetime is rolling the dice on a drama based on the Clarice Starling character that was made famous by Jodie Foster’s Academy Award-winning turn in the 1991 adaptation of “The Silence Of The Lambs” (which itself is based on the book by Thomas Harris). The show will follow the titular character right after she graduates from the FBI academy.
But Lifetime’s isn’t the only TV show being adapted »
