As part of his new deal at Sony Pictures TV, features producer Irwin Winkler is looking to once again turn his 1995 Sandra Bullock film "The Net" into a TV series.

"The Net" was adapted as a TV series once before; that short-lived 1998 USA Network skein starred Brooke Langton.

This time around, John Brancato and Michael Ferris — who wrote the original feature screenplay — will adapt the series themselves. Project hasn't yet been shopped to networks.

"We thought it would make a great TV series," Winkler said of the movie that revolved around a software analyst who becomes embroiled in the netherworld of computer-driven espionage and identity theft. "A lot of people said it was ahead of its time anyhow."
