TV Adaptations

Seth McFarland's foul-mouthed Bostonian bear is back! The 'Family Guy' creator is working on a new TV series that will serve as a prequel to the 2012 movie 'Ted.' The live-action comedy will star McFarland as Ted, of course, with several other famous faces joining the cast such as Scott Grimes and Giorgia Whigham. The series, which is being released via Peacock, is set in Boston in 1993, shortly after the excitement and attention over Ted's ability to move and talk has died down. It explores Ted's relationship with his 16-year-old best friend, John Bennett (played by Mark Wahlberg in the movies). John will be played by Max Burkholder, known for playing Max in the hit series 'Parenthood.' No release date has yet been announced. 

While this is not the first show inspired by a movie, it's certainly one we're excited about. And why not revisit other films that inspired TV shows?
