With multiplatform content, A-list stars and better programming than ever before, TV is the new cool kid in town. But the smallscreen hasn’t forgotten about the bigscreen.
Feature films have inspired 10 series set to premiere this summer and throughout the upcoming season across broadcast, cable and streaming services.
Before the networks unveiled their 2015-16 slates, even more scripted adaptations of movie screenplays were filtered through the pilot cycle, including NBC’s “Problem Child” sitcom, based on the 1990 John Ritter comedy, which ultimately wasn’t handed a series order. NBC, which until recently was home to both “Parenthood” and “About a Boy,” is now the only big four network not to have a movie adaptation on its upcoming schedule.
Over at CBS, two features and a documentary are being converted into series.

Out doing press for the show, many questions still deal with his past efforts from the widely reviled "The Last Airbender," to some of his more early acclaimed work such as the superhero origin story "Unbreakable".
Now fifteen years old, there's been talk of a sequel to the latter for many years, talk that has never panned out as such. Speaking with IGN, Shyamalan has revealed that one potential idea is that a follow-up could go the small screen route:
"Could you do a six-episode Unbreakable series on Netflix or HBO? Yeah! That's cool. I even had an idea of doing a story that goes in one form, and a second part that's in another form, and a third one's in a different form. »

No trailer yet, but here's your first official look at CBS' "Rush Hour" series (via several photos), which the network has set for a mid-season 2016 premiere. Previously, Damon Wayans Jr was offered the part originated by Chris Tucker in the movie franchise, but he passed (or something else happened that led to his not signing on); The role was officially given to actor/comedian Justin Hires of "Key & Peele" fame (he's also appeared on the big screen in films like "21 Jump Street"). To, of course, be based on the feature film of the same name, which gave birth to a trilogy of movies starring Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan, the series is expected »

Upfront season is all about the search for primetime’s Next Big Thing. But for a studio, the win doesn’t come until a series is renewed for season two and beyond.
For all the upheaval in TV, the 2014-15 season generally proved fertile for Big Four broadcast nets. The renewal rate of scripted series introduced during the September-May frame is higher than it has been since at least 2009-10 for all but NBC, according to research by Variety Insight.
ABC renewed seven of its 11 new series for a second round in 2015-16, compared to three of 14 from the 2013-14 season. CBS picked up five of its eight freshman shows, compared to two out of eight from the class of 2013-14. Fox renewed three out of eight, an improvement over two of eight from last year. NBC so far has renewed one out of a total of 10 scripted series introduced during the past season, »

The latest news spreading across the internet at the moment is that MGM (Who did the first two movies) are making big steps towards a third installment, something i am sure all Jackie fans will be excited about.
Shanghai Noon was released back in 2000 and the second (Shanghai Knights) released 3 years later, so why has it taken 12 years (Yes 12 years) before planning a third? Jackie has always stated he would love to make a third along with actor Owen Wilson, but insisted the script must be right. I loved the first two, Shanghai Noon being my favorite which also featured Yuen Biao as a stunt double and he also helped with the action choreography.
It will be interesting to see where this movie location ends up, Shanghai Noon was East meets West, Shanghai Knights they traveled to England, so what will happen in the third installment? I am happy this is happening, »
Shanghai Noon and Shanghai Knights stars Owen Wilson and Jackie Chan have signed on for the new sequel Shanghai Dawn, which is moving forward at MGM Studios. Jonathan Glickman will oversee the project for MGM, which is currently seeking a screenwriter to craft a new story. No plot details were released at this time, and it isn't known when production may begin.
Owen Wilson's Roy O'Bannon, a small-time thief, and Jackie Chan's Chon Wang, an Imperial Guard, first teamed up in 2000's Shanghai Noon, which was coming off the heels of 's success in teaming up with Chris Tucker in 1998's Rush Hour. The story followed the unlikely team of O'Bannon and Wang as they joined forces to save a kidnapped princess. The movie only made $99.2 million worldwide from a $55 million budget, but it spawned the sequel Shanghai Knights in 2003, which took the action to London. The sequel »

Check out the images and official synopsis below:
Rush Hour, a reimagining of the hit feature film franchise, is a buddy-cop drama about a maverick Lapd detective and a by-the-book detective from Hong Kong who knock heads when they are forced to partner together.
Detective Lee (Jon Foo) is a reserved, honorable master martial artist with lightning-fast moves who comes to L.A. to avenge his sister’s »
