TV shows go to the movies

Hollywood's love affair with remaking television shows into motion pictures continues this summer with Bewitched, based on the '60s comedy, and The Dukes of Hazzard, based on the popular lowbrow car-chase show from the '80s.

Bewitched stars Nicole Kidman in the part made famous by Elizabeth Montgomery, as a pretty suburban housewife who happens to be a witch. Former SNL funnyman Will Ferrell costars. Classing up the joint will be Shirley MacLaine and Michael Caine.

The Dukes of Hazzard, the post-Smokey and the Bandit action comedy about the Duke family's never-ending battle to defeat bumbling cops and the crooked Boss Hogg, is coming to the big screen, starring Seann William Scott, Johnny Knoxville, Jessica Simpson, and Burt Reynolds. The casting alone appeals to the lowest-common denominator necessary to insure success.

In the past, television-to-movie conversions have met with varying degrees of success. Both Mission: Impossible films were ...

Serenity Now-- It's TV.COM's rundown of television-to-movie conversions

The Dukes of Hazzard is the latest in a long and illustrious line of television shows that have been ported over to the big screen. Television shows being turned into movies used to be a novelty; now, it's a necessity. With spiraling budgets and jaded audiences, Hollywood is searching for surefire hits. Sometimes it works. Other times, it's The Mod Squad.

Cartoons from the 1980s are the "vein du jour" for filmmakers. Hong Kong action guru John Woo is prepping a megabudget He-Man starring Sex and the City's Jason Lewis as the blonde, leather-clad sword-wielder who's "got the power." Recently, N.E.R.D. front man Pharrell Williams announced he is producing and scoring a big-screen treatment of the pre-Power Rangers cartoon Voltron: Defender of the Universe. In the "you can't get any bigger than this" category, megamoguls Steven Spielberg and Michael Bay will ...

The Addams Family centers around one of the two "creepy" families that premiered on television in 1964. ABC aired The Addams Family and CBS aired The Munsters.

The Addams Family consisted of Gomez and Morticia Addams and their two children, Pugsley and Wednesday. Also included are Uncle Fester, Grandmama, the hairy Cousin Itt, the butler Lurch and Thing! The series is based on a one-panel cartoon created by Charles Addams that had appeared in The New Yorker magazine since the 1930s. The show's title came from the cartoonist's name; The family in the cartoon is never referred to by name. The finger-snapping theme song was written by Vic Mizzy, who also write the theme for Green Acres. The series lasted two seasons, yet gained much more success in syndication. The series was later transformed into a the 1991 feature film starring Raul Julia and Angelica Huston.
