A 'League of Their Own' series is coming to Amazon, starring D'Arcy Carden ('The Good Place') and Abbi Jacobson ('Broad City'). Jacobson is also writing and executive producing the comedy, which, according to The Hollywood Reporter, "will have the spirit of Penny Marshall's beloved movie while expanding its lens to explore race and sexuality as the series follows a new ensemble of women carving out their own paths in the league and outside of it."

While this is not the first show inspired by a movie, it's certainly one we're excited about. In the meantime, why not revisit other films that inspired TV shows? In this gallery, you'll find some of the best movie spin-offs, prequels, sequels, and everything in between. Click through and start binging on these series today!
