    Two blockbuster literary adaptations will be coming to the BBC over the next couple years, as noted by Shelf Awareness. The channel BBC One has ordered episodic adaptations of the novel “The Casual Vacancy” by J.K. Rowling and of the novel “Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell” by Susanna Clarke.

    More here: ‘The Casual Vacancy’ and ‘Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell’ adaptations will air on the BBC

    Another source mentioned the BBC is putting top talent behind the “Jonathan Strange” adaptation, including one of the directors from “Sherlock” and one of the writers from “Wallander”.

    That’s good news for me since I just love Clarke’s novel. Can’t wait!
