THE CASUAL VACANCY, based on the novel by acclaimed author J.K. Rowling, centers on Pagford, a seemingly idyllic English village with a cobbled market square and ancient abbey.

The cast includes Monica Dolan, Michael Gambon, Keeley Hawes, Rufus Jones, Rory Kinnear, Simon McBurney, Julia McKenzie, and introduces Abigail Lawrie. HBO Miniseries presents in association with BBC a Bronte Film and Television Production; executive produced by Paul Trijbits, Rick Senat, Neil Blair and J.K.
