When “Robert Galbraith” first released THE CUCKOO’S CALLING, many readers were shocked by the wonderful quality of work from a debut author. Soon, the world discovered that’s because Galbraith is actually HARRY POTTER author JK Rowling.
Now, her quiet series that started off under an alias is a bestseller and soon to be a series on the BBC!
My friend @RGalbraith's first novel is going to be a TV drama on @BBCOne. He's very excited, but expressing it with characteristic silence.

The CORMORAN STRIKE books will be adapted as a series by the network, starting with the events of THE CUCKOO’S CALLING, in which the title character investigates the alleged suicide of a supermodel in London.
No casting for the series has been announced yet.
BBC, in conjunction with HBO, will also be releasing Rowling’s THE CASUAL VACANCY as a mini-series.
