Autumn shoot for Cormoran Strike Mysteries

JK Rowling Filming on BBC One’s adaptation of The Cormoran Strike Mysteries by Robert Galbraith – aka J.K. Rowling – is due to begin in London this autumn. 

The start date for principal photography is on Production Intelligence, along with key HoD names including the line producer, producer, production designer, location manager and casting director. 

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.  

Sarah Phelps, who worked on Rowling’s The Casual Vacancy for BBC One, is on writing duties along with Ben Richards. Rowling executive produces alongside Ruth Kenley-Letts and Neil Blair, her agent and founder of The Blair Partnership. 

As with The Casual Vacancy, The Cormoran Strike Mysteries comes from Bronte Film and TV, the independent production company co-founded by Blair and Rowling.
