TV show description:
Based on JK Rowling’s Comoran Strike detective novel series, written under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith, the CB Strike TV show airs on BBC One under the title Strike. CB Strike began as mini-series, but future seasons are a possibility.
The crime drama centers on war veteran Comoran “C.B.” Strike (Tom Burke). Once again a civilian, Strike now works as a private investigator, out of his Denmark Street office, in London.
His time in the military has left him damaged — both physically and psychologically. Still, Strike’s experience as a military police investigator has provided him with just the skills he needs to solve those crimes which have stymied law enforcement.
The first three episodes are based on The Cuckoo’s Calling, in which Strike, with help from his new assistant and protégé, Robin Ellacott (Holliday Grainger), investigates the death of Lula Landry (Elarica Johnson). Although an inquest concludes the supermodel committed suicide, her brother John Bristow (Leo Bill) enlist’s Strike’s help in getting to the truth.
The middle two episodes are based on the book, The Silkworm, while the final two episodes of the first season are adaptations of Career of Evil. For now, at least, additional seasons depend upon whether or not Rowling writes and publishes subsequent installments.
This episode has not aired yet.
First aired: TBD
