The Time Traveler’s Wife tells the intricate love story of Clare Abshire and Henry DeTamble and a marriage with a problem…time travel.

.

Desmin Borges (whose credits include You’re The Worst and Utopia) will be playing the role of Gomez, who is one of Clare’s best friends…and is secretly in love with her. Gomez being Gomez, it’s a secret he’s managed to keep from absolutely no one. Truculent, clever, with an often blundering sense of humour, he is also fiercely honourable. Over the years, despite everything, he becomes Henry’s best friend, and his saviour many times.

.

Natasha Lopez (whose credits include Runner Runner and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit) will be playing the role of Charisse, no nonsense, no filter, and a little neurotic, she is Clare’s closest confidante and her roommate…and also Gomez’s long-suffering girlfriend. When the mysterious Henry arrives on the scene, Charisse is determined to get to the bottom of who he really is. And when Charisse wants to know something, the questions don’t stop.

The series adaptation is being written by Steven Moffat, who also serves as executive producer alongside Sue Vertue and Brian Minchin through their banner Hartswood Films. The company is providing the project with Warner Bros. Television, as they have the rights to the title. The series is currently in pre-production.
