J.K. Rowling's Casual Vacancy Trailer Is Emotional And Angsty

For everyone thinking that Downton Abbey would be the only place to find densely packed British ensemble casts on TV this year, you’re in luck. The BBC One has unveiled the first trailer for the drama The Casual Vacancy, based on the first adult novel from Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling.

J.K. Rowling Teams With HBO And The BBC For The Casual Vacancy Miniseries

HBO and the BBC have teamed up with Rowling to turn her 2012 novel into a three-hour miniseries to be aired at an undisclosed date. There’s a joke to be made about a vacancy on HBO’s schedule being casually taken by this miniseries, but it’s not up to Rowling’s standards.

J.K. Rowling's Casual Vacancy Set For A TV Series

The Casual Vacancy is unrelated to the Potter universe and targeted at adults, rather than children and young adults. The greatly anticipated novel received mixed reviews, but given Rowling's success and popularity, not to mention the success and popularity of her fantasy series, it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that her new novel will be adapted. Only, instead of a feature film, The Casual Vacancy will be made into a TV series.
