Here’s Our First Look at the New “Time Traveler’s Wife” Drama Series

Beloved novel, “The Time Traveler’s Wife,” is getting a new television adaptation and we just got our first look!

Written by Audrey Niffenegger, “The Time Traveler’s Wife” tells an intricate and magical love story of married couple Clare and Henry who attempt to live their lives as normal while coping with Henry’s genetic disorder that causes him to randomly time travel, often in inconvenient times and to inconvenient locations.

“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,” said Steven Moffat, who will be adapting this story for the series.

“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,” he added. “This is going to be the love story we need right now.”

The show, which will run for six episodes, will star Rose Leslie (HBO’s “Game of Thrones”), Theo James (“Divergent”), Desmin Borges (“You’re the Worst”), and Natasha Lopez (“Runner Runner”) and will be directed by David Nutter. Filipinos will be able to watch it on HBO GO

No premiere date has been announced.
