    Of the 2015 films you’ve seen so far, does any character stand out so strongly in your mind that they could be spun off into their own weekly TV series? Male or female, lead or supporting, doesn’t matter.

    Prequel series for Kate Macer from Sicario (Emily Blunt), where we see her rise through the ranks.

    Kate and Geoff Mercer from 45 Years. Again a prequel. I feel there is enough backstory referred to in the film to make an equally powerful series.

    It could be fun for an Inside Out TV series. There is a short on the DVD with the lead character preparing for her first date and going through the emotions of her parents meeting him and so on. It’s pretty cute and I think it could work with an episodic structure.

    I love that idea KyleBailey

    Rich Purnell (Donald Glover) from The Martian, along with the JDL team led by Bruce Ng (Benedict Wong) dealing with the weekly pressures and deadlines handed down by NASA chief Teddy Sanders (Jeff Bridges) as well as…their complicated love lives or something, I dunno.

    I was thinking of a Martian tv series too! Like Sean Bean’s, Jeff Daniels, Donald Glover’s, and Kristen Wiig’s characters being the main focus.

    Also Tilda Swinton’s character in Trainwreck would be an amazing television show.

    THIS. IS. GENIUS! Yes! She’d never do it though. She’s mentioned several times how theatre has always bored her because she gets tired of the repetition. I’m guessing she would feel the same about a series.

    Funny you ask this question because I finally got a chance to see Spotlight this weekend, and for all of its positives, the film truly feels like an episode in a television series. A lot of people keep saying that it’s the type of film “Hollywood doesn’t make anymore,” without acknowledging that the statement is true mostly because television makes those movies into series now. Not that it’s the same quality as CSI or Law & Order or approach to the genre as The Newsroom, but the procedural, quick-paced, crime-investigative approach to storytelling works well on television. With that said, I could see the Spotlight team being a fantastic limited series like True Detective. New cast, new investigation every season. 

    If I had to choose one, single character though–Eilis Lacey from Brooklyn

    I agree about Spotlight. I would love to see a TV show with a new case each season but the same cast so not really a limited series but just one with a new case every season like they are doing on Murder in the First on TNT
