Nicholas Sparks is best known for his sappy romance novels, all of which seem to become wildly popular for reasons unbeknownst to me. His latest venture, though, is a divorce comedy for ABC. COMEDY. I guess this is semi-autobiographical considering his recent divorce after 25 years of marriage.
The series, titled The Next Chapter, is about romance novelist Ben Diamond, a recent divorcee who is learning to date again, “all while dealing with the pressures of his public persona as the world’s most foremost “expert” on love.” Sparks is executive producing the series penned by Austin Winsberg (Gossip Girl, The Sound of Music Live!)
Apologies to the former Mrs. Sparks.
