J.K Rowling - In ConversationEnthusiasm for J.K. Rowling's work shows no signs of flagging, so HBO is again teaming up with the "Harry Potter" author.

The premium cable company is bringing "Cormoran Strike," an adaptation of Rowling's crime novel series of the same name, to U.S. and Canadian viewers. The BBC One-produced limited series follows the adventures of Strike (Tom Burke), a war veteran who works as a private detective on cases the police haven't been able to crack. Fans can look forward to at least three installments in the event series -- one for each book.

The first of the three parts will be "The Cuckoo's Calling," a three-hour installment. The next two, "The Silkworm" and "Career of Evil," will be shorter but still clock in at a solid two hours apiece. We may also see a fourth in the future given that Rowling has a fourth "Cormoran Strike" novel coming in 2017.

The limited series will add to Rowling's production credits, which have been piling up as of late. She'll serve as one of the executive producers, as she did when BBC One previously adapted her 2012 novel "The Casual Vacancy." HBO also landed U.S. and Canadian rights to that miniseries.

Apparently, HBO likes Rowling and her work as much as the rest of us do.
