How could anyone think that turning Bad Teacher into a TV show was a good idea?
Not every movie is worth adapting into a TV series.
TNT's Snowpiercer is more than enough proof that even the best movies don't always translate well to the smaller screen. But while most movie-to-TV spin-offs feel like blatant cash crabs, every now and then you come across a real head-scratcher. These are the shows that you know in your gut were destined to fail: the shows that you're positive anyone in their right mind must have known would lose money. These are some of the weirdest movie spin-off TV shows ever made.
If only this entry were joke. But alas, there really is a TV spin-off of everyone's least favorite Best Picture-winning movie about racism written and directed by white people. The TV show doesn't fare any better. It's just more melodramatic racial strife fan fiction, as imagined by wealthy white people who have never experienced any of it firsthand.
