Great news for fans of J.K. Rowling and her new book The Casual Vacancy. It was announced today that it will be adapted into a series! According to The Hollywood Reporter:
The broadcaster’s flagship channel BBC One and BBC Drama have commissioned an exclusive adaptation of the book in a deal with The Blair Partnership, which represents the British author.
Rowling will collaborate closely on the project, with the number and length of the episodes “to be decided once the creative adaptation process has formally begun,” according to the BBC.
I’m happy that Jo is happy and working closely with the project. I’m reading the book now and I’m curious to see how it will adapt. Did you read the book? If so, what did you think?
