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."
