I never read the graphic novel but I really liked the movie. I'm not sure how it'll work as a TV show though.
Strip it down to the base concept -- the public domain literary heroes of Victorian fiction, teaming up to fight crime. Then build it out from there. The show would probably be a lot like Doctor Who's "The Crimson Horror" or the Victorian flashbacks in Torchwood. The first season's meta arc could hit some of the major points in the first volume across its 13/22 episodes, with standalone episodes in between with the team having to fight Dr. Moreau or the Giant Rat of Sumatra or things like that.
