HBO, BBC Adapt Rowling's "Casual Vacancy"

HBO and the BBC are set co-produce a mini-series adaptation of "Harry Potter" author J.K. Rowling's 2012 bestseller "The Casual Vacancy".

The story is set in Pagford, a seemingly placid idyll that hides a series of running battles between its inhabitants.

Jonny Campbell will direct from a screenplay by Sarah Phelps. Three one-hour episodes will be produced and are scheduled to be filmed this summer in Southwest England.
