The Notebook

New Line Cinema

Get ready to weep on a weekly basis: The Notebook TV series is in the works at The CW. That's right, the Nicholas Sparks book that became a sobfest on the big screen in 2004 with Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling could be heading to the small screen. E! News has learned The CW just has a script in development with Sparks attached as an executive producer.

Theresa Park is also on board the project with Camp scribe Todd Graff writing and executive producing the project.

The show would be based on the book and movie of the same name and follow "the romantic journey of the two beloved central characters Noah and Allie" from the start of their relationship to 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."

Oh the tears, we can feel them coming already.

James Garner, Gena Rowlands, Joan Allen and James Marsden also starred in the big screen version.

The Notebook isn't the only beloved film that may become a TV show on The CW. The network is also working on an adaptation of Little Women, but this show would be a "hyper-stylized, gritty adaptation" of the classic book and film. Yep. Alexis Jolly is behind that script, which follows half-sisters Jo, Meg, Beth, and Amy as they "band together in order to survive the dystopic streets of Philadelphia and unravel a conspiracy that stretches far beyond anything they have ever imagined—all while trying not to kill each other in the process."

What's next, CW?
