Back in 2012 JK Rowling caused a stir with her first novel published after her successful Harry Potter series. The Casual Vacancy received understated reviews. Despite this Rowling‘s first adult novel will be turned into a three hours miniseries co-produced by HBO in conjunction with the BBC.

Michael Gambon who played Professor Dumbledore in the Harry Potter films, after the death of Richard Harris, will play the lead role of Parish council leader Howard Mollison. Julia McKenzie will play Mollison's wife, Shirley, and Rufus Jones his son, Miles. Keeley Hawes takes on the role of Miles's wife and Rory Kinnear will play Barry Fairbrother, whose death puts in motion the story in the fictional town of Pagford.

Rowling’s next book, The Silkworm, will be published in July. It follows the private investigator Cormoran Strike who featured in her previous novel The Cuckoo’s Calling written under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith.
