THE TIME TRAVELER’S WIFE To Become a TV show?

Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams in The Time Traveler's Wife

After a pretty successful opening for the movie, THE TIME TRAVELER’S WIFE, it seems that ABC has teamed up with Marta Kauffman (creator of Friends) and Warner Bros. Television to bring the story back as a TV show, according to The Warp.

The Time Traveler’s Wife tells the story of Henry, a man who is a spontaneous time traveler, which means he randomly goes back and forth in time, with no control over it. He meets Clare and they fall in love. Now the interesting thing is that Clare had first met Henry as a little girl during one of his travels, and fell in love with him then. The story follows their dealing with this unusual problem.

While, I have seen the movie (you can read my review here), I did not read the book by Audrey Niffenegger. However, I do see how the concept could work as a show. Plus I really enjoyed the movie and wouldn’t mind seeing a show about the same story, if done well of course.

ABC executives believe the complex plot of the original novel will work well in series form, since Kauffman will be able to explore the romantic relationship at the core of the story over the course of several seasons.
