JK Rowling’s detective novels to be adapted by BBC


It has been announced that JK Rowling’s detective novels, written under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith, are to be adapted for the small screen by the BBC.

The novels are based on the detective Cormoran Strike where there are, so far, two instalments of the series: The Cuckoo’s Calling and the most recently published The Silkworm.

Filming details are yet to be announced, as well as the number of episodes and the expected broadcast currently all up in the air.

When discussing the new series, BBC Director of Television, Danny Cohen, said: “It’s a wonderful coup for BBC TV to be bringing JK Rowling’s latest books to the screen.

“With the rich character of Cormoran Strike at their heart, these dramas will be event television across the world.”

Together with HBO, BBC have also created a TV adaptation of Rowling’s first adult novel, The Casual Vacancy, published back in 2012 which is expected to air next year in February.
