J.K. Rowling is a storyteller like no other. From her record-shattering young adult novels in the magical world of Harry Potter to her latest adult works, the British author is, without a doubt, a driving force behind many of today's greatest literary works.
Warner Bros. is proud to present The Casual Vacancy, a TV series adaptation of Rowling's first novel for adults, which sold over one million copies worldwide in its first three weeks of release.
Thought-provoking and constantly surprising, The Casual Vacancy is a dark and moving drama with elements of both comedy and tragedy. When Parish Councilman Barry Fairbrother unexpectedly dies in his early forties, the town of Pagford is left in shock. An English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, Pagford is not what it first seems. What lies behind the pretty facade is a town at war - rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils. And the empty seat left by Barry on the parish council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest battle the town has yet seen. Who will triumph in an election fraught with passion, duplicity and unexpected revelations? Find out in this big series about a small town.
