About The Rook
“The Rook” is an eight episode supernatural spy thriller drawn from the 2012 debut novel of Australian author Daniel O’Malley. It 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.
“The Rook’s” star-studded cast is led by Emma Greenwell (“Shameless”, “The Path”), and also includes Shelley Conn (“The Lottery,” How Do You Know) and James D’Arcy (“Agent Carter,” Dunkirk).
“The Rook” is produced by Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF.A, LGF.B) and Liberty Global (NASDAQ: LBTYA, LBTYB, LBTYK). 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.
“The Rook” premieres on Stan on July 1, with new episodes dropping weekly
