This Thursday, July 16th, ABC airs J. K. Rowling: A Year in the Life.
The woman who created an imaginary world for millions, J. K. Rowling, allowed cameras extraordinary access during the year before the seventh and final Harry Potter book was published. From the one bedroom apartment in Scotland where it all began to a hotel room where viewers watch her type the last words of the Potter saga, Rowling lets millions of fans into her world. The documentary exposes her childhood sorrows, visits the church where she and her sister worked after school as janitors, and allows people to see her now as both the queen of a magical, alternate universe and an everyday mom. Cameras also travel back to her hometown and discover where many of the characters of Harry Potter originated.
A day after the release of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in theaters, Elizabeth Vargas takes viewers on a journey into the life of the woman who came from "nothing" and created all of her own success. J. K. Rowling: A Year in the Life airs July 16 at 8 PM (ET/PT) on ABC.
