The Rook Teaser Previews the Supernatural Spy Thriller


Starz is giving a first look today at The Rook, the supernatural spy thriller premiering this summer and starring Emma Greenwell, Jon Fletcher, Adrian Lester, and Olivia Munn.

Starz Original Series The Rook tells the story of Myfanwy Thomas, a woman who wakes up in the rain beside London’s Millennium Bridge with no memory of who she is and no way to explain the circle of latex-gloved dead bodies splayed around her. When Myfanwy discovers she is a high ranking official in the Checquy, Britain’s last truly secret service for people with paranormal abilities, she will have to navigate the dangerous and complex world of the agency to uncover who wiped her memory – and why she is a target.

From Lionsgate and Liberty Global, The Rook is executive produced by Twilight Saga creator Stephenie Meyer, with industry icon Stephen Garrett serving as showrunning Executive Producer.

The Rook is executive produced by Meyer and producing partner Meghan Hibbett under their Fickle Fish production banner. The series is adapted and co-produced by award-winning playwrights and screenwriters Sam Holcroft (Rules for Living) and Al Muriel (Precious & Rich) based on the novel by Daniel O’Malley.
