die Serie (der Film) basiert auf...
If it's a TV series, you could also say "die Fernsehserie"; otherwise "die Serie" or "der Film" would be just fine.

"is based on" is not a particularly good English expression in this context to start with.
I'd therefore ruthlessly say "Die Serie (der Film) basiert auf..." or "...beruht auf...".
This way you can remain close to the rather wobbly style of the original.
