The CW is currently developing a television version of The Notebook, Entertainment Weekly reports.

Nicholas Sparks, who wrote the book that the 2004 Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling hit film was based on, is attached to executive-produce the project along with Theresa Park.

"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," the logline reads.

According to CW President Mark Pedowitz, the potential Notebook series would likely focus solely on Allie and Noah's lives as young lovers - not the couple's incredibly weepy Alzheimer's storyline in which they die simultaneously.
