All we need to know about HBO’s The Casual Vacancy is that it’s based on the J.K. Rowling novel and Harry Potter‘s Michael Gambon is in the cast. Consider us on board. A new trailer is out for the miniseries that’s set to air April 29 and 30. And it’s a bit creepy.

From HBO: The Casual Vacancy, based on the novel by acclaimed author J.K. Rowling, centers on Pagford, a seemingly idyllic English village with a cobbled market square and ancient abbey. Behind the pretty façade, however, is a town at war: rich vs. poor, teenagers vs. parents, wives vs. husbands, teachers vs. pupils. The cast includes Monica Dolan, Michael Gambon, Keeley Hawes, Rufus Jones, Rory Kinnear, Simon McBurney, Julia McKenzie, and introduces Abigail Lawrie. HBO Miniseries presents in association with BBC a Bronte Film and Television Production; executive produced by Paul Trijbits, Rick Senat, Neil Blair and J.K. Rowling; directed by Jonny Campbell; written by Sarah Phelps; produced by Ruth Kenley-Letts.
