Bong Joon Ho’s Best Picture-winning film, which took home four total Oscars on Sunday, is now the first film to win Best Picture with a TV series adaptation already in the works. Word of a potential limited series, with fellow Oscar winner Adam McKay on board, got out shortly after last month's Golden Globes. "Conventional Oscar campaigns have contenders keeping any pending TV projects under wraps until after the Academy Awards for fear of jeopardizing their chances," says Deadline's Nellie Andreeva. "But television is no longer considered features’ inferior sibling. And Parasite is not your typical Oscar contender." As she points out, the news of a potential TV series didn't hurt Parasite's Oscar prospects. "There are only a couple of Best Picture Oscar-winning films that have spawn TV series, all done years after the movie had won the Academy Award," says Andreeva. "The very short list includes In the Heat of the Night and Crash. None has had the original creative minds behind the movie as deeply involved as Bong is in the HBO series. (Another of Bong’s movies, Snowpiercer, is being done as a TV series at TNT with other auspices.)" As for news linking Mark Ruffalo to Parasite, Andreeva says "any casting buzz is very premature as Bong and McKay are ways away from talking to actors," though Ruffalo did not deny that there have been talks.
