‘The Notebook’ Heading To TV: Series In The Works At The CW [PHOTOS]

More than a decade after Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams brought audiences to tears with their performances in 'The Notebook,' Noah Calhoun and Allie Hamilton are set to stage a comeback on the small screen.

A TV version of Nicholas Sparks’ romantic drama 'The Notebook' is in the works at The CW. Sparks will serve as an executive producer on the project.

As first reported by Entertainment Weekly, the network is developing a series based on Sparks’ bestselling 1996 novel and the 2004 New Line sleeper hit film, which catapulted Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams to fame.

Set in the late 1940s North Carolina, the series would follow the romantic journey of the two beloved central characters from the film, Noah and Allie, at the outset of their blossoming relationship as they build their lives and their future together against the backdrop of the racial politics, economic inequities, and social mores of post-World War II.

The film was narrated by older Noah telling the tale to his wife who suffers from Alzheimer’s disease, something which may not be incorporated in the series.

“I don’t believe we’re going to see the older couple— what they become,” The CW president Mark Pedowitz told reporters at the Television Critics Association’s press tour in Beverly Hills. “But things change [in development]. I’m thrilled Nick Sparks wanted to do it at The CW.”
 

A TV version of 'The Notebook' comes as remakes continue to be in high demand, as broadcast and cable networks look for proven brands in a bid to cut through an increasingly competitive landscape that currently boasts more than 400 scripted originals.

Gosling and McAdams first brought Noah and Allie to life back in 2004 in a now-classic tearjerker film. As fans know, the pair dated from 2005 to 2007, with a brief reunion in 2008.
