The Rook: Season 1 — Official Teaser Trailer


added: Fri, Mar 8th '19

An amnesiac woman sets out to uncover her identity, only to discover that she's a "rook," a high-ranking member of Britain's secret service for people with paranormal abilities.

Check out the first official teaser trailer for Starz's forthcoming supernatural spy thriller series based on the genre-bending novel by sci-fi writer Daniel O'Malley.

The eight-episode drama stars Emma Greenwell (from the Hulu series "The Path" and the Showtime dramedy "Shameless") as Myfanwy Thomas, a British woman with no memory of who she is. She soon discovers that her memory was wiped clean because she possesses extreme supernatural abilities and was working for a secret government organization. Now she must figure out who is after her and why they want her dead.

Also starring in the series are Joely Richardson (Red Sparrow), Olivia Munn (The Predator), and Adrian Lester (Mary Queen of Scots).

"The Rook: Season 1" is due to premiere sometime in the summer on Starz. Watch the teaser trailer, above.

THE ROOK tells the story of Myfanwy Thomas (Emma Greenwell), a woman who wakes up in London with no memory of who she is and no explanation for the circle of dead bodies around her. When Myfanwy discovers she's a high ranking official in Britain's secret service for people with paranormal abilities, she'll have to navigate the dangerous and complex world of the agency to uncover who wiped her memory and why.
