JK Rowling is teaming back up with HBO. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network has picked up a new series from the author called The Strike Series.
The three-part series is based on Rowling’s detective novels, The Cuckoo’s Calling, The Silk Worm, and Career of Evil. Last year, HBO co-produced a mini-series adaptation of Rowling’s novel The Casual Vacancy.
The new series will center on “Cormoran Strike (War and Peacestar Tom Burke), a war veteran turned private detective operating out of a tiny office in London’s Denmark Street. Though he’s wounded both physically and psychologically, Strike’s unique insight and his background as an SIB Investigator prove key in solving three complex cases which have eluded the police.”
Ben Richards and Tom Edge are writing the series, and Rowling will executive produce alongside Neil Blair, Ruth Kenley-Letts and Elizabeth Kilgarriff.
