Watch now: The trailer for the TV series based on J.K. Rowling’s ‘The Casual Vacancy’
A first look at the new HBO series...
Dumbledore a.k.a. Michael Gambon stars in the new HBO TV series based on the J.K. Rowling book The Casual Vacancy. However, this is where the Harry Potter similarities end. Rowling's first adult fiction novel after completing the six-book Harry Potter series tells the tale of a small town, and a community leader who mysteriously dies. The story is a dramatic one, and features fights, murder and a possible ghost.
Another post-Potter novel of Rowling's – Cuckoo's Calling – is also set to be adapted for the small screen, as the BBC recently announced the TV adaption in December.
Take a look at the first official trailer for The Casual Vacancy, set to hit screens April 29, below now:
