‘C.B. Strike’: Trailer & Premiere Date For Miniseries Based On J.K. Rowling Novels
  |  @   |  

Toward the end of last year Cinemax announced some release windows for new and returning shows. One of those shows was C.B. Strike starring Tom Burke (Only God Forgives) and Holliday Grainger (The Borgias), which was planned for a June 2018 debut.

An official premiere date has indeed been set for the miniseries, which is based on Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling‘s Cormoran Strike novels, and a trailer for the show was released recently.

Continue below for more info on C.B. Strike, the premiere date, and the trailer.

C.B. STRIKE is based on the bestselling crime novels written by Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith. Starring Tom Burke (“Only God Forgives”) and Holliday Grainger (“The Borgias”), the story centers on Strike, a war veteran turned private detective, operating out of a tiny office in London’s Denmark Street. Although wounded both physically and psychologically, Strike’s unique insight and his background as a military police investigator prove crucial in solving three complex cases that have baffled the police.

The show launches with three one-hour episodes based on the first book in the trilogy, “The Cuckoo’s Calling,” followed by adaptations of the remaining two books, “The Silkworm” and “Career of Evil,” both of which will consist of two one-hour episodes.

C.B. STRIKE is a CINEMAX Miniseries presentation in association with BBC; a Bronte Film and Television production; “The Cuckoo’s Calling” executive produced by Ben Richards, Neil Blair, Ruth Kenley-Letts and J.K. Rowling; “Career of Evil” and “The Silkworm” executive produced by Tom Edge, Neil Blair, Ruth Kenley-Letts and J.K. Rowling.

if you haven’t read Rowling’s books and would like to do so before the show arrives, you can grab a copy of book one The Cuckoo’s Calling, book two The Silkworm, and book three Career of Evil over at Amazon.

C.B. Strike will premiere on Cinemax on June 1st.
