  1. It’s a trend to try and exploit existing brands in the hopes that somebody might checkout your show.

    Fairly easy to extend Limitless, just have another guy taking the drug with Cooper in a cameo supporting part.

  2. Is this a trend now tv shows based of movies I mean I haven’t seen limitless the show but I might need a re watch but I don’t think the movie let room for a sequel or tv show could be wrong haha
