Thank You for Smoking is being adapted into a television series for the USA Network. According to Variety, James Dodson is writing the pilot script for David Sacks' Room 9 Entertainment. Sacks produced the original feature film.

The series will most likely go by a different title, and will pick up directly where the film version left off. Nick Taylor, having kicked some of his more evil lobbyist habits, will use his skills for good. USA's Jeff Wachtel stated, "He'll live somewhere between the morally ambiguous character of the movie and Robin Hood. The challenge was how to make that character live successfully in our network. Jim Dodson came in and answered the question for us."

The series was originally pitched to NBC, but they passed on it. The pilot is set to go into production at the start of the New Year.
