HBO has confirmed the debut dates for the HBO Miniseries/BBC adaptation of J.K. Rowling’s global bestseller “The Casual Vacancy,” with parts one and two 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).
“The Casual Vacancy” centers on 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 cast includes Michael Gambon, Keeley Hawes, Rory Kinnear, Monica Dolan and Julia McKenzie, and introduces Abigail Lawrie.
HBO Miniseries presents in association with BBC a Bronte Film and Television Production; executive produced by Neil Blair, Paul Trijbits and Rick Senat; directed by Jonny Campbell; written by Sarah Phelps; produced by Ruth Kenley-Letts.
