Galaxy Quest

If your true passion in life is seeing popular movies get turned into TV series, you’re a happy person these days. And there’s some more good news for you: it’s now being reported that Paramount Television is developing a TV series based on DreamWorks’ 1999 cult sci-fi comedy classic Galaxy Quest.

This is another in a long line of movies that have either already been adapted into a TV series recently or are currently being developed into a TV series, including From Dusk Till Dawn, Silence of the Lambs, Psycho, Teen Wolf, Rosemary’s Baby, Scream, The Evil Dead, Problem Child, Friday the 13th, and many more.

Galaxy Quest follows a group of actors who once starred on a hit sci-fi TV show strongly resembling Star Trek—now making their money traveling from convention to convention to sign autographs for quote-happy fans of said show—when an alien race who have modeled their entire existence around this TV series (having no understanding of what television is) comes to the actors to save them. It’s one of the many things inspired by Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai.

Some of the folks who were involved with making the movie will also be a part of the TV series if it does end up getting made. Robert Gordon, who co-wrote the original’s screenplay, is set to pen the script for the TV show as well, and movie director Dean Parisot and executive producer Mark Johnson will both also be involved.

Gordon has no TV writing credits to his name, and only has three other movie credits—Addicted to Love, Men in Black II, and Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events. Parisot and Johnson have plenty of experience in the realm of TV on the other hand, with the former directing episodes of Northern Exposure, Monk, Modern Family, The Good Wife, and Justified, and the latter producing shows like The Guardian, Breaking Bad, Rectify, Battle Creek, Halt and Catch Fire, and Better Call Saul.

No details on how closely the show will stick to the movie, who might star, and when we could see it premiere are known at this early stage.
