With the latest success of such films as "The Flintstones" and "Maverick," Hollywood no doubt will continue its frantic rush to make into a movie virtually every old television show that ever aired.
With everything from "Gomer Pyle" to "Green Acres" now being developed, the number of available remakes may soon dry up. Should that happen, there is an ample list of failed TV pilots that could inspire a potential blockbuster.
Here are a few of them, courtesy of the book "Unsold Television Pilots 1955 through 1988" by Lee Goldberg:
* "Zsa Zsa in Paris," a comedy starring Zsa Zsa Gabor as an advice columnist in Paris.
* "Attorney General," a show based on files from the California attorney general's office.
* "Hollywood Angel," about "a suave Hollywood publicist who is also a private eye."
* "Wake Up, Stupid," about an ex-prizefighter turned college professor.
* "Oh Johnny," in which "Johnny Carson stars as the leader of an all-girl orchestra touring the world."
