Strike: Career Of Evil – the third adaptation of JK Rowling’s Cormoran Strike series of novels – will premiere on BBC One on Sunday February 25th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Strike follows Cormoran Strike, a war veteran turned private detective operating out of a tiny office in London’s Denmark Street with his assistant Robin. Though he’s wounded both physically and psychologically, Strike’s unique insight and his background as an SIB Investigator prove crucial to solving complex cases which have eluded the police.
In Career Of Evil, when a dismembered leg is sent to Strike’s office, it sends both Cormoran’s and Robin’s lives into disarray, forcing them to confront ghosts from their pasts. Their partnership reaches breaking point as Robin’s wedding approaches and they disagree about how to ensnare a man who abuses children. The drama series is produced by Brontë Film & TV and stars Tom Burke (The Musketeers) and Holliday Grainger (The Borgias) lead the cast as Cormoran Strike and Robin Ellacott, respectively. Charles Sturridge directed from a script by Tom Edge. The executive producers are J.K. Rowling, Neil Blair, Ruth Kenley-Letts and Elizabeth Kilgarriff.
