Nicholas Sparks Working On TV Projects For TNT, ABC Family And Lifetime

Everyone's favorite tear-jerking author is heading to TV.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Nicholas Sparks and his literary agent Theresa Park will act as executive producers for TNT's "Bend In The Road," ABC Family's "The Falls" and Lifetime's "Deliverance Creek."

"Bend In The Road" centers on a sheriff managing life in a coastal Georgia town, while "The Falls" is a modern-day "Romeo And Juliet" tale.

Meanwhile, Lifetime's "Deliverance Creek" will follow a woman as she attempts to protect her family after the civil war.

Sparks has seen several successful novel adaptations in film form including "The Notebook," "A Walk To Remember," "Dear John," "The Last Song" and more.

While Sparks told THR that writing novels was his first priority, he's excited to explore the TV world. “It’s a chance to venture into stories I don’t always write about,” he said.

Sparks' upcoming film "Safe Haven," starring Julianne Hough and Josh Duhamel will hit theaters on February 8 2013. Take a look at the trailer here.
