We’ve known that production on The Time Traveler’s Wife has been underway, as one of us live right down the street from a studio and every single day on their way to Starbucks, they pass the studio with a big ass sign.
But it being official makes us even more excited.
The story is an intricate and magical love story, adapted by Steven Moffat from the much loved novel by Audrey Niffenegger. THE TIME TRAVELER’S WIFE tells the story of Clare and Henry, and a marriage with a problem… time travel.
“This is a story of loss but it’s not a tragedy. It’s about a time traveler but it’s not science fiction. Despite Clare and Henry’s time scrambled relationship, this is the tale of a grand, ordinary love – but not necessarily in that order. This is a dream project for me. I have always loved Audrey Niffenegger’s extraordinary, moving novel and it has inspired me many times, so to be adapting it for television is the thrill of a lifetime. Working with David Nutter is a joy and an honour already, and with Rose Leslie and Theo James as Clare and Henry, and Natasha Lopez and Desmin Borges as Charisse and Gomez, this is going to be the love story we need right now.” Executive Producer and writer Stephen Moffat said.
Francesca Orsi, Executive Vice President, HBO Drama Programming added, “Steven Moffat is the perfect writer to bring this beloved book and genre-bending story about marriage to life. We also couldn’t be more thrilled that David Nutter will be returning to HBO to direct all episodes of the season.”
