The BBC has announced that the Cormoran Strike novels, written by J.K. Rowling under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith, will become a BBC One television series.

The series will start with the first book in the series, The Cuckoo’s Calling, which was published in 2013 and has Strike investigating the suspicious death of a famous supermodel.

“It’s a wonderful coup for BBC Television to be bringing J.K. Rowling’s latest books to the screen. With the rich character of Cormoran Strike at their heart, these dramas will be event television across the world,” Danny Cohen, Director of BBC Television, said in a statement on Tuesday.
