War veteran turned private detective Cormoran Strike solves brutal murders with the help of his trusted assistant Robin Ellacott.
If “detective series based on the novels of J.K. Rowling” sounds like good TV to you, you’re in luck. As part of next year’s programming details, Cinemax revealed the release date of “C.B. Strike,” the latest TV adaptation from the “Harry Potter” author.
The series, co-starring Tom Burke and Holliday Grainger, follows Cormoran Strike, a P.I. who uses his Army experience to help crack extra mysterious cases in London and beyond. This adaptation will bring to the screen all three Strike novels, which Rowling wrote under the pen name Robert Galbraith. HBO had previously announced that it had picked up U.S. distribution rights, but Monday’s announcement signaled that the series would be part of a new revamped Cinemax lineup.
