Filming on “The Cormoran Strike Mysteries” Will Soon Be Underway

It’s been a while since we’ve had any news about the BBC adaptation of Robert Galbraith’s Cormoran Strike series (to be fair, we’ve been distracted by a deluge of other Rowling-related happenings!), but it seems that production on the series will soon be underway!

The show, which is going by the title of The Cormoran Strike Mysteries, will have seven 60-minute episodes. Sources suggest that these seven episodes may cover all three of the books released so far:

The lengthy shoot will be delivered as 7 x 60 episodes, incorporating three of the books in the series of novels about the eponymous injured war veteran turned private investigator Strike and his assistant Robin as they investigate crimes in the capital’s murky underbelly.

Although no information about casting is available yet, we do know that the show is due to begin filming in London in the fall – so we should know before too long who will be portraying Strike and Robin!

Sarah Phelps, who also worked on the television adaptation of J.K. Rowling’s The Casual Vacancy, will co-write the show with Ben Richards. Rowling herself will serve as one of the executive producers, along with Neil Blair (of the Blair Partnership) and Ruth Kenley-Letts. The production company for the series will be Bronte Film and TV, founded by Rowling and Blair.

Are you excited to see this series brought to life?
