The 2004 beloved romantic sci-fi comedy-drama movie, which won an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, will get the TV series treatment as the project is being shopped around to the cable networks and streaming platforms. Director Michel Gondry & screenwriter Charlie Kaufman are not involved as of now. Steve Golin, who produced the movie, will also produce the TV show through his company Anonymous Content, already behind True Detective, Mr Robot, Quarry, Berlin Station and upcoming Netflix miniseries 13 Reasons Why, alongside True Detective‘s executive producer Richard Brown. The pilot script is penned by Zev Brorow, who previously worked on Forever and Chuck. Universal Cable Productions is the studio, which means Eternal Sunshine Of the Spotless Mind could easily land on USA Network. Stay tuned.

Remember, this is the story of a couple in trouble who undergoes a procedure to have each other erased from their memories. But it is only through the process that they discover what they had to begin with… It starred Kate Winslet & Jim Carrey.
