J.K. Rowling’s The Casual Vacancy Coming as BBC TV Show

BBC One and BBC Drama have teamed up to create a television adaptation of The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling. The series should be released in 2014.

The author had this comment in the release: “I’m thrilled that the BBC has commissioned The Casual Vacancy. 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.”

Neil Blair negotiated the deal with BBC One Controller Danny Cohen. Blair will produce through his production company and Rick Senat will be the executive producer on the series. Rowling will “collaborate closely” with the show. The number of episodes and length of each show will be decided.
