I was thinking about "Freshman Dorm", the books and the TV show, and I was trying to think of other television series that were made from books. I couldn't think of any. * There are some made from comic books, but I'm not counting those. * There are many made from movies that were also books, but I'm not counting those either. * There are TV series that became books later. * There are many, many silver screen and TV movies that came from books. * There are some TV specials and miniseries that came from books. But I can't think of any that went directly from book to TV series. Make me feel like a fool. Tell me about the dozens of examples I can't think of.
