Atkinson's Brodie to be adapted for BBC

What fabulous news!

According to, Kate Atkinson's Jackson Brodie will be adapted for the BBC. I hope that translates to PBS in the U.S. It will be shown in early 2011 on BBC One.

“Case Histories” will be a six-part series adapted from the mystery novels Case Histories, One Good Turn and When Will There Be Good News? Private detective Brodie will be played by Jason Isaacs, (was Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter movies).

The production company is Ruby Films, which also adapted "Small Island" and "The Other Boleyn Girl. The series will be filmed in Edinburgh.

Atkinson’s new Brodie novel Started Early, Took my Dog, published by Doubleday, will be out on August 19 alongside new-look reissues of her other Brodie titles.
