J.K. Rowling’s first adult novel, “The Casual Vacancy,” is coming to HBO as a three-part miniseries on April 29th and 30th, and now we have a first look at the trailer. Starring Rory Kinnear, Simon McBurney, and Michael Gambon — who took over the role of Dumbledore after Richard Harris' death — the series is a black comedy about the intrigue that engulfs a small English town in the wake of the sudden demise of one of its town council members. Unfortunately it features a lot less magical beasts than "Harry Potter," although there is a creepy skeleton wearing a hat. Watch:
