About THE ROOK
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), Ronan Raftery (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them), Catherine Steadman (Downton Abbey), Jon Fletcher (GENIUS), Shelley Conn (THE LOTTERY), and James D’Arcy (AGENT CARTER).
THE ROOK is produced by Lionsgate and Liberty Global (NASDAQ: LBTYA, LBTYB, LBTYK) and is adapted and co-produced by Sam Holcroft and Al Muriel, drawn from Daniel O’Malley’s novel. Showrunner duo Lisa Zwerling and Karyn Usher serve as executive producers via their Carpool Entertainment production company, alongside Stephen Garrett who also serves as executive producer under his Character 7 banner.
