There’s another J.K Rowling adaption you should know about

She gave us Harry Potter, told us what ‘Muggles’ are in the world of wizardry and made us wait for a magical letter to get into Hogwarts.

Now, the author, screenwriter and film producer J. K Rowling is set to wow us with another string to her bow.

According to the Telegraph, the novelist’s detective novels, written under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith, are set to air on the small screen as part of a new BBC mini series towards the end of this year.

Called Cormoran Strike, the series will air in three separate parts – each based on Rowling’s three crime novels including The Cuckoo’s Calling, The Silkworm and A Career of Evil.

Earlier this year the BBC announced that actress Holliday Grainger will star in the series alongside actor Tom Burke, who will play Rowling’s war veteran-turned private detective, operating out of a tiny office in London’s Denmark Street.

Though he’s wounded both physically and psychologically, he proves crucial in solving three complex cases which have eluded the police.

It’s been a busy year for Rowling and it doesn’t look as though she is stopping anytime soon. 

The author’s first film of the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them series is due to hit the big screens on November 18 and her new play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has been a huge sell-out, with the fandom showing no signs of slowing down.

Rowling and The British Library are also planning a bumper Harry Potter exhibition next year to mark 20 years since the release of the first novel, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, that sparked Potter mania.

The exhibition will treat fans to Rowling’s personal archives of as yet unseen material.
