J.K. Rowling’s ‘The Cuckoo’s Calling’ to Be Adapted into BBC Series

0

J.K. Rowling’s 2013 book The Cuckoo’s Calling is set to be adapted into a British TV series.

The book skyrocketed to the top of bestsellers’ lists when it emerged the Harry Potter creator penned the novel under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith.

Following the success of the first novel, Rowling followed with the The Silkworm and both books will now be used as the foundation for a BBC drama series about a war veteran who loses his leg in Afghanistan and decides to embark on a career as a private investigator.

The project will reunite Rowling with Bronte Film and TV producers, who worked on the adaptation of her book The Casual Vacancy.

Announcing the project on Twitter, the author writes: “My friend @RGalbraith’s first novel is going to be a TV drama on @BBCOne. He’s very excited, but expressing it with characteristic silence.”
