I don’t like a lot of romance films, but The Notebook with Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams was pretty fantastic. The movie was based on the Nicholas Sparks love story, and now it’s headed to The CW as a TV series.
The news comes from Variety, who reports that the series will follow “the romantic journey of young, conflicted couple Noah and Allie at the outset of their blossoming relationship as they build their lives and their future together against the backdrop of racial politics, economic inequities and social mores of the late 1940s in North Carolina.”
The show is in the early stages of development, but there is a script in place and the plot they’ve come up with for the story is original.
This is the complete opposite of the recently announced Friday the 13th series for the network. They obviously like to have a lot of genre diversity with their content. They’ve been playing in a sandbox full of superheroes, romance, drama, comedy, supernatural, and horror.
