The Casual Vacancy, J.K. Rowling’s latest novel, will be made into a miniseries for the BBC, it’s been reported today. BBC One and BBC Drama have entered an exclusive adaptation deal; it wil be produced by an independent production company produced by J.K. Rowling’s agent, Neil Blair (on behalf of his agency, The Blair Partnership) and Rick Senat.
JKR will “collaborate closely” with the project. The number and length of episodes has not yet been decided. It is expected to air in 2014.
JKR said of the adaptation:
“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.”
