J.K. Rowling to Serve as Executive Producer For ‘The Casual Vacancy’ Mini-Series

en_GB-timeline-image-the-casual-vacancy-cover-image-1341414943-cwHBO and BBC have scheduled production on The Casual Vacancy TV adaptation to begin this summer. Altogether, the team plans to create a three-hour long mini-series.

Variety reports that J.K. Rowling herself will serve as an executive producer. EastEnders TV series writer Sarah Phelps penned the script. Filmmaker Jonny Campbell has been hired to direct.

Rowling has been a busy bee as of late juggling several different projects. Fans have been learning more about Quidditch, a sport played in the wizarding world of Harry Potter, with Rowling’s essays on Pottermore.

She has also signed on as the screenplay writer for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movie. Back in February, she announced that she will be writing a new crime thriller under the Robert Gailbraith pseudonym.
