The project, called The Watchers, tells the story of an archangel called Raphael who, after spending centuries as a Watcher (read guardian angel), decides to cut off his wings so that he can be with Sarah, the mortal woman he loves. But when Sarah’s life is cut short, Raphael is left to wander the earth alone as a fallen angel.
The series will be produced by the production company behind Dear John, and the script has been co-written by Kristin Hahn, co-producer of The Time Traveler’s Wife.
The series will make perfect viewing for adult and young adult fans of Sparks’ existing novels as well as fans of Atom authors such as Stephenie Meyer, Melissa de la Cruz, and Alexandra Adornetto, so fingers crossed The Watchers makes it across the Atlantic soon!
