Last month, CBS announced its intention to bring "Source Code" to television after the feature film was released to a moderately successful box office release earlier this year. And it's not the only 2011 movie already heading to the small screen.

Deadline is reporting that Syfy is developing "The Adjustment Bureau" as a potential TV series. The movie was loosely based on the Philip K. Dick short story "Adjustment Team and was written and directed by George Nolfi. Matt Damon starred as a rising political star who stumbles upon a shadowy organization (the aforementioned Adjustment Bureau) whose special powers allow them to ensure that people's lives unfold according to their plan. In the film, the Bureau takes numerous steps to prevent Damon's character from pursuing a romance with a dancer portrayed by Emily Blunt because it goes against their prescribed destinies.

Nolfi will executive produce the potential series, while former "Smallville" executive producers Darren Swimmer and Todd Slavkin are slated to adapt the film to a pilot script and serve as executive producers as well. "The Adjustment Bureau" will also be produced by MRC; which co-produced the film version with Syfy's sister company, Universal Pictures.

Of course, it's going to be a while before "The Adjustment Bureau" shows up on TV. But if you really want to see a  TV series with men in funny hats with special powers who manipulate reality and the fate of our world… than have I got a show for you.

 


Yes that's right, it's "Fringe;" a terrific series airing Friday nights on Fox. If you like sci-fi, this is the show you should be watching.
