The Rook Trailer and New Character Posters Debut

-

Starz today released the official The Rook trailer, which previews the Lionsgate and Liberty Global-produced STARZ Original Series. In addition to the previously-released key art featuring Emma Greenwell in the title role of Myfanwy Thomas, Starz also shared the character art for the balance of the cast. The series will premiere Sunday, June 30th, 2019 at 8PM ET/PT on STARZ in the U.S. and Canada, and then on the STARZPLAY platform in Germany and Spain.

The Rook is a supernatural spy thriller which 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.

In addition to Emma Greenwell, The Rook’s star-studded cast also includes Joely Richardson (Nip/Tuck, Red Sparrow), Olivia Munn (The Newsroom, The Predator), Adrian Lester (The Day After Tomorrow, Riviera), Ronan Raftery (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Moone Boy), Catherine Steadman (About Time, Downton Abbey), Jon Fletcher (Genius, The Messengers), Shelley Conn (The Lottery, How Do You Know), and James D’Arcy (Agent Carter, Dunkirk).

The Rook is produced by Lionsgate and Liberty Global. It is adapted and co-produced by Sam Holcroft and Al Muriel, and drawn from Daniel O’Malley’s novel. Showrunner duo Lisa Zwerling (Betrayal, FlashForward, ER) and Karyn Usher (Bones, Prison Break, Backstrom) serve as executive producers via their Carpool Entertainment production company, alongside Stephen Garrett (The Night Manager, Hunted) who executive produces under his Character 7 banner.
