One of my favorite Sunday rituals is settling down with a big mug of coffee or tea, pulling out the Style section of the Sunday New York Times, and flipping directly to the Modern Love feature. The column features one essay per week on some aspect of love (romantic, friendly, sisterly), and they're almost always quirky and engaging.
Well, now there's news that a production company has bought the TV rights to Modern Love and is talking about what kind of TV series could be built around the column's content. According to Variety, the producers — who said they're all fans of the Modern Love series and discuss it around their office — are currently meeting with writers to help flesh out their concepts for the show.
I'm curious about this project, and my first thought that it would be amazing as a This American Life-style show with a variety of short stories about love told in different ways. I'd hate for it to become some sort of goofy comedy show, though. Are there any other Modern Love fans out there? Can you envision a TV show based on it? And are there any particular favorite Modern Love columns that strike you as ripe for adaptation?
