J.K. Rowling, best known for the Harry Potter universe, has sidestepped that billion dollar industry to take on another world of intrigue and scandal amidst…UK parish politics. Or something like that. You sure there aren’t any flying beasts in this thing?

Based on the novel by Rowling, The Casual Vacancy hits HBO April 29, 2015, and stars Michael Gambon from the Harry Potter film series. So…it’s sort of like the same thing. Right?
