Lovers of the Robert Galbraith (a.k.a. J. K. Rowling) mysteries are in for a treat. BBC will be adapting the three novels which will also be aired on HBO.
“The project, Cormoran Strike, will air as three separate event series, each based on a Galbraith book: The Cuckoo’s Calling, The Silkworm, and Career of Evil. Cormoran Strike will star Tom Burke as a war veteran turned P.I. who can crack cases that have eluded the police proper” (http://www.vulture.com/2016/10/jk-rowlings-crime-books-to-be-limited-series.html?mid=twitter_vulture).
The Cuckoo's Calling will thave hree one-hour episodes. The Silkworm and Career of Evil will each be divided into two one-hour episodes. Filming is set to begin this fall.
I’ve really enjoyed the three novels. You can see my reviews of them:

Apparently the fourth book in the series will be released next year.
