The CW May Turn ‘The Notebook’ Into a Light, Sexy TV Seriesby Matthew Scott Donnelly | PopCrush
For those who thought the romance offered in The Notebook could never be recreated, consider for a moment that lightning may, indeed, strike twice.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the CW is developing a series based on the incredibly popular 2004 film, which was an adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’ 1996 novel. The project is still awaiting a green light, but if it’s ordered to series, it would follow the main characters, Noah and Allie, as their love takes shape.
“[The Notebook] will follow the romantic journey of the two beloved central characters, 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 of the late 1940s in North Carolina,” its official logline reads, according to EW.
More importantly, fans will probably appreciate that it’s unlikely the series would address the film’s more depressing elements—like the couple’s eventual struggle with Alzheimer’s.
“At this point, the pilot is not done,” CW President Mark Pedowitz told reporters at a stop along the Television Critics Association’s press tour, according to EW. “I don’t believe we’re going to see the older couple—what they become—but again, things change and we’re just now in the development stage.”
