Moreover, you probably have never heard of the existence of many of these series. Unlike the films they were based on.

Filming a series, along with sequels or remakes, is the possible fate of a large number of successful films of the past and present. However, series created in the image and likeness of famous paintings have an important distinctive feature - they almost never involve the people who worked on the original. While someone from the cast may leak into a sequel, spin-off, or even a remake, this almost never happens in the case of TV series. Thus, all that remains from the original source is the title (sometimes slightly changed), as well as the characters (less often) or the concept (more often).
