The movie-to-TV train continues in full force this year and following in the footsteps of "The Transporter,” “The Lincoln Lawyer,” “Anger Management” and most recently, "Source Code" another film -- albeit one quite different from this list -- is now getting the small screen treatment.

Nominated for four Oscars including Best Picture, Best Actress, Best Support Actor and Best Screenplay, "The Kids Are All Right" will bring its unique story about a lesbian couple, their children and the sperm donor who made it happen to HBO, according to Deadline. Director Lisa Cholodenko will be directly involved as she is writing the pilot, and she will executive produce the potential series as well. The plan is for the show to pick up where the movie ended, further chronicling the unique lives of the characters. Frankly, it sounds like a great idea to use. Cholodenko and co-writer Stuart Blumberg created some great personalities in their film, people we don't usually see on the big screen and who were a joy to spend a couple of hours with, so a weekly series? On HBO? Fuck yeah, bring it on.

Of course it's too early to tell how casting will play out, but we presume none of the talent in the film will return (though that would be awesome) which makes this part of the developing project a bit tricky. The entire cast -- that included Annette Bening, Julianne Moore, Mark Ruffalo, Mia Wasikowska and Josh Hutcherson -- leaves some pretty big shoes to fill, but if the writing is strong and the actors who eventually do come aboard are game, it shouldn't be too much of an issue. Of course, the movie-to-TV track record is littered with shows that either couldn't live up to its predecessor or never found an audience, but this project seems to be off to the right start, and moreover, has a great home at HBO. To refresh your memory, here's the trailer for the movie, and if you haven't seen it, what are you waiting for?
