After The Time Traveler’s Wife scored a fairly respectable little pile of poker chips at this weekend’s box office, the news is breaking that the story is next headed to the small screen. Marta Kaufman, co-creator of Friends and Veronica’s Closet, is set to write and executive produce an ongoing series that can take time spinning out the decade long romance of the novel at the same time as giving us stand alone narratives tied-up on an episode by epidsode basis. Quantum Leap, anyone? Or maybe Journeyman is more on the nose.
According to The Wrap, ABC and Kaufman have been talking about the project “for years.” Of course, it’s no surprise that the light came on just now, when the film has proven itself in the marketplace.
