There are different characters but you can clearly see who they are modeled after from the movie, for the most part. Totally different plot though.I read that it's got different characters to the film? They seem pretty much identical from the trailers though, is it more of an "inspired by" type thing? Looking forward to it anyway, will catch it at the weekend.
I enjoyed the first episode quite a bit, it'll be interesting to see where it goes from here.
