TV Wise is reporting that The Cormoran Strike Mysteries, a television show based on J.K. Rowling’s Robert Galbraith novels will most likely be airing on HBO in 2016. We previously reported that BBC would be airing the show in the UK. This news is not yet official, but it would make sense for BBC and HBO to partner again, as they did for Rowling’s The Casual Vacancy miniseries.
Additionally, it looks like the screenwriter for The Cuckoos Calling portion of the show, Sarah Phelps, has finished some, if not all, of her work for The Cormoran Strike Mysteries. Rowling tweeted the writer earlier this week to express her excitement over reading “a certain thing.” Ben Richards will adapt the second novel The Silkworm. It is unknown who will adapt Career of Evil.
According to the TV Wise article, a formal episode order for The Cormoran Strike Mysteries has not yet been set, with the BBC stating that it would be finalised once the scripts are completed.
Steeped in the atmosphere of contemporary London, Cormoran Strike’s city is far from the bright lights and frenetic bustle, immersed instead in its darker, murkier side. War veteran turned private detective, Strike investigates shocking crimes together with his female assistant Robin, whose forensic mind and fierce determination he cannot ignore. The murders take them from the hushed streets of Mayfair to the literary haunts of Fitzrovia, exposing the seedy reality lurking beneath seemingly innocent societies. With each crime, they discover a little more about each other and both learn that appearances can be deceptive.
