With the success of the Star Trek Series and The Untouchables, Hollywood started to pump out television drama adaptations with regularity in the late 90's and early 00's. The best of these movie adaptations are probably The Untouchables (very good movie about Eliot Ness going after Al Capone), The Fugitive (thriller with Harrison Ford), Mission: Impossible (good action movie from Tom Cruise, I really liked this one, but many people didn't), and Charlies Angels. I'm sure we can look for more of these types of movies to come out over the years as Hollywood execs look for a built-in audience and script writers get a case of writers block. The adaptations from dramas do appear to have the best track record of any of the tv genres.
