Nicholas Sparks' 'The Notebook' Turned Into TV Series

The CW works together with Nicholas Sparks Productions to adapt the romantic tale into a TV series.

AceShowbiz - Nicholas Sparks' best-selling novel "The Notebook" is being adapted into a TV series after successfully running on theaters as a movie in 2004. The CW nabbed the TV rights to the 1996 romance novel with Sparks and Theresa Parks on board as executive producer.

"This series will follow the romantic journey of the two beloved central characters Noah and Allie," The CW announced, "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 is both the writer and the producer. During the Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills, CW's president Mark Pedowitz said the series might not fully adapt the book. "I don't believe we're going to see the older couple - what they become, but things change [in development]. I'm thrilled Nick Sparks wanted to do it at The CW," he said.

"The Notebook" follows Noah and Allie's romance over the span of decades. Their love is hindered by class as she is the daughter of a wealthy family and he works as a laborer. Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling played the lovers in the New Line movie.
