    spin-off / spinoff

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to interpret the word “spin-off” which I noted in the following excerpt of an “Entertaiment News”?

    “I used to watch a Toni Randal show “Love,Sidney”.. It was a spin-off the movie.”

    My suppositions are: “copy”, “replica”, “counterpart” or maybe “byproduct”, “derivation”, “filial”, “offshoot”.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    A derivative of something. In this case, the TV show was derived from a film.
