J.K. Rowling’s crime novels – published under the name Robert Galbraith – are being made into a major new television series for BBC One.
Featuring detective Cormoran Strike, the books include The Cuckoo’s Calling and The Silkworm.
Rowling will collaborate on the project, with the number and length of episodes to be decided at a later date.
The series will be produced by Brontë Film and TV which has also adapted Rowling’s The Casual Vacancy into a three part serial which will be aired on BBC One in February 2015.
Neil Blair, Chair of Brontë said: “We’re delighted to be bringing these best-selling novels to the screen and to be working once again alongside the BBC.”
Danny Cohen, Director of BBC Television added: “It’s a wonderful coup for BBC Television to be bringing J.K. Rowling’s latest books to the screen.
“With the rich character of Cormoran Strike at their heart, these dramas will be event television across the world.”
