The New Trailer For J.K. Rowling’s The Casual Vacancy
On 27 March 2015
HBO has revealed the new trailer for the HBO Miniseries/BBC adaptation of J.K. Rowling’s global bestseller “The Casual Vacancy.” Watch it below!
The Casual Vacancy was J.K. Rowling’s first novel following the completion of her Harry Potter saga. It takes place in a small English town called Pagford, a seemingly idyllic English village with a cobbled market square and ancient abbey. Behind the pretty façade, however, is a town at war: rich vs. poor, teenagers vs. parents, wives vs. husbands, teachers vs. pupils.
The Casual Vacancy stars Michael Gambon (Dumbledore), Keeley Hawes, Rory Kinnear, Monica Dolan, and Julia McKenzie. The Casual Vacancy was directed by Jonny Campbell, and the novel has been adapted by Sarah Phelps in collaboration with Rowling herself.
Parts one and two of “The Casual Vacancy” are scheduled to debut back-to-back Wednesday, April 29 (8:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT), followed by the debut of part three the next night, Thursday, April 30 (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET/PT).
