J.K. Rowling is heading back to the screen -- the small screen this time. The BBC announced on Monday that it would be adpating the author's first post-Harry Potter work, "The Casual Vacancy," in to a television series. In a statement, Rowling said "I'm thrilled that the BBC has commissioned 'The Casual Vacancy.' I always felt that, if it were to be adapted, this novel was best suited to television and I think the BBC is the perfect home." The series would be set to air sometime in 2014.
