SyFy developing an Adjustment Bureau TV show

Oct. 3, 2011by: Paul Tassi

We may think that Hollywood is completely devoid of original movie ideas these days, but let's not forget how desperate TV is as well.

THE ADJUSTMENT BUREAU was a pleasant sci-fi surprise, but I never really imagined it would be ripe material for a TV show. But Sci-fi (sorry "SyFy") disagrees, which is why they've greenlit a new series based on the film, which was adapted from a Phillip K. Dick short story.

Not much is known about the project yet, except that Smallville producers Darren Swimmer and Todd Slavkin are writing it.

Can you picture what this show would be like? Would it follow one person or group meddling with the Bureau, or would it be more of a procedural, following a Bureau member getting involved in various people's lives? And above all, is this in any way a good idea?

Extra Tidbit: I'm picturing them trying to make it like sci-fi Mad Men, which is a line I guarantee someone used in a pitch.

I could actually see it working quite well in a Quantum Leap kind of way. They can go anywhere and anytime they want, and if the writers are good, can even make them go against big events of our generation

Liked the movie

But this sounds like "Touched by an Angel" for the non-religious crowd.

I enjoyed the movie and really hope any television show they make from it be a series of separate stories of people's interactions with the Bureau. Almost an anthology show.

That would make me watch. Possibly revisiting a good story or two in later episodes or having past characters show up in other people's new stories.

"We may think that Hollywood is completely devoid of original movie ideas these days, but let's not forget how desperate TV is as well."

I don't agree with this at all. I am more excited and spend more time watching my favorite television shows every week than going to the movies. Television isn't desperate, movies now are. Television provides better storytelling, drama, action, and comedy on a weekly basis then most movies do today.

Sounds like a good idea

I really enjoyed the movie alot and the idea is something that could be expanded more in a television show. I just wish it weren't on SyFy. Not really the channel known for the best television shows.

If he weren't already Roger Sterling on Mad Men, I would love to have John Slattery back (maybe he can do a few cameos in the show) since he made for an awesome agent.

They should do a blend of Dark City and Adjustment Bureau.

I was pleasantly surprised with the movie, so I would be totally on board with a series like this. It does open the door for a lot of possibilities on a "per episode" basis.

Really does seem like a no-brainer.

I picture it being more like a sci-fi law and order. It'll probably be a procedural following the men working in the adjustment bureau. Don't know how else they can do it.
It might be cool if they do a "Lost" large cast that gets swept into world of the adjustment bureau. Intertwining stories and the like.

Of course this is a good idea. How can anyone not see the potential for a tv series here. It's pretty damn obvious. It will likely follow agents within the bureau as they get involve with various people's lives. However the fact that it's on SyFy, means it probably won't be very good.
