The Casual Vacancy is the TV adaptation of J.K. Rowlingâ€™s novel with the same title. It centers on Pagford, a seemingly idyllic English village with a cobbled market square and ancient abbey. Behind its pretty faÃ§ade, however, is a town at war: rich at war with the poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, and teachers at war with their students. Stars Rory Kinnear, Michael Gambon, Julia McKenzie, Keeley Hawes, Simon McBurney, Richard Glover and Marie Critchley.
Premiere Date: Feb/15/2015
