Posternotebook The 2004 film “The Notebook,” which was based on a novel by Nicholas Sparks and starred Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams may be getting a TV show. The author, along with Warner Bros. Television, is in talks to develop the series on The CW.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the series will be a period show, which will be second in the network after “Reign.”

The logline basically tracks the same path as the movie, with main characters Noah and Allie’s relationship during their younger years as the main story: “This series 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.”

Todd Graff has been tasked to write the script along with Sparks and Theresa Park.

“The Notebook” has received a lot of nominations and has gained a cult following over the years. It was a sleeper hit at the movies, despite its mixed reviews.

If greenlit, the show will be part of The CW’s line-up in the 2016 season.

The news comes as a few movie-turned-TV-show adaptations are set to run this upcoming season on various networks, such as “Rush Hour,” “Uncle Buck,” “Minority Report” and “Limitless.”
