Re: No reason the current cast couldn't do a TV series.

StarMan said:
So, movie franchise to TV franchise, as opposed to the other way round? Is there a precedent for that?
Aside from Star Trek's previous metamorphsis from TVH to TNG?

Yup. Stargate. Buffy too I believe. Neither show used the same actors as the films, IIRC.

I can picture a series set in the revamped TOS era, perhaps. But with the recast TOS crew? Na-ah.
Which is the problem. Aside from the TNG example I gave, these series recast the principles, and in the case of Stargate, put hopes of a film trilogy indefinately on hold.
"Tell me this, do they have auditions for television?"
"That's all television is, my dear - nothing but auditions."
