J.k. Rowling’s latest novel, ‘The Casual Vacancy,’ an adult novel that is a huge departure from her massively popular ‘Harry Potter’ series, is heading to BBC. According to Deadline, “BBC One and BBC Drama are teaming with J.K. Rowling‘s manager Neil Blair, his un-named production company operated by Blair on the behalf of the The Blair Partnership, and Rick Senat.” J.K. Rowling will work closely with the production team on the project, and it is planned for a 2014 air date. Rowling shared, “I’m thrilled that the BBC has commissioned The Casual Vacancy. 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.” For the comments: Have you read ‘The Casual Vacancy,’ and do you think it will make a good TV series?

    *sigh* How surprising. Haven’t read, don’t plan to. The reviews were enough.
