I remember reading The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger many years ago and loving it. I’m a sucker for most things involving time travel and the love story aspect put a unique twist on it. The movie adaptation was OK but wasn’t really all that I had been wanting. It seems that Doctor Who and Sherlock show runner Steven Moffat feels the same way, because he’s taking the novel and developing it into a series for HBO.

“I read Audrey Niffenegger’s The Time Traveler’s Wife many years ago, and I fell in love with it. In fact, I wrote a Doctor Who episode called The Girl In The Fireplace as a direct response to it. When, in her next novel, Audrey had a character watching that very episode, I realized she was probably on to me. All these years later, the chance to adapt the novel itself, is a dream come true. The brave new world of long-form television is now ready for this kind of depth and complexity. It’s a story of happy ever after — but not necessarily in that order,” said Moffat.

HBO is also very excited about the idea of having Moffat on board and bringing it to their premiere cable outlet.

HBO’s programming president Casey Bloys added: “We are thrilled to be partnering with Steven Moffat, Hartswood, and WBTV on The Time Traveler’s Wife. Steven’s passion is evident in every project he’s written and we are certain that his love and respect for this mesmerizing and textured novel will make it a quintessential HBO series.”

I can’t wait to see how this turns out and we’ll be sure to keep you posted as more news develops here at DFAT!
