HBO’s The Time Traveler’s Wife Begins Production, From Former Doctor Who Showrunner
HBO Original drama seriesÂ The Time Travelerâ€™s Wife is in production in New York. David Nutter (Emmy-winning director for HBOâ€™s Game Of Thrones, Band Of Brothers and nominee for The Sopranos and The Pacific) joins the production as an executive producer and will direct the six-episode first season.
Starring Rose Leslie (HBOâ€™s Game Of Thrones), Theo JamesÂ (Divergent), Desmin BorgesÂ (Youâ€™re The Worst) and Natasha LopezÂ (Runner Runner), the series is an intricate and magical love story, adapted by Steven Moffat from the much-loved novel by Audrey Niffenegger.
The Time Travelerâ€™s Wife tells the story of Clare and Henry, and a marriage with a problem… time travel.
Steven Moffat said:
â€œThis is a story of loss but itâ€™s not a tragedy.
It’s about a time traveler but itâ€™s not science fiction. Despite Clare and Henryâ€™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 Niffeneggerâ€™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.â€
Francesca Orsi, Executive Vice President, HBO Drama Programming said:
â€œSteven Moffat is the perfect writer to bring this beloved book and genre-bending story about marriage to life.
We also couldnâ€™t be more thrilled that David Nutter will be returning to HBO to direct all episodes of the season.”
The Time Travelerâ€™s WifeÂ is an HBO and Warner Bros. Television production based on the book by Audrey Niffenegger, is executive produced by Steven Moffat, Sue Vertue, and Brian Minchin through Hartswood Films; Joseph E. Iberti; and David Nutter.
Steven Moffat is best known for being the showrunner on the Eleventh and Twelfth Doctors in the Doctor Who TV series, as well as the man behind Sherlock starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Netflix’s Dracula.
