J.K. Rowling’s adult fiction debut to be adapted for TV

The Casual Vacancy is to be dramatised for the BBC, and the celebrated writer will work closely with producers as the series comes together next year (13) for a premiere in 2014.

The bestseller centres around an unexpected death in a British village.

Thrilled Rowling says, “I always felt that, if it were to be adapted, this novel was best suited to television and I think the BBC is the perfect home.”
