‘Friends’ co-creator Marta Kauffman will write and executive produce a weekly television series for ABC based on Audrey Niffenegger’s debut novel, and current box office draw, “The Time Traveler’s Wife.”
According to The Wrap, ABC and Kauffman discussed bringing the novel to TV for many years. However, the network has only recently asked Warner Bros Television for a pilot.
Published in 2003, “The Time Traveler’s Wife” features Henry, played by Eric Bana in the movie, a man with a genetic disorder resulting in frequent and spontaneous time travel. His wife, Clare (Rachel McAdams) patiently deals with his frequent disappearances.
