Starz Reveals Premiere Date for New Drama 'The Rook' Starring Emma Greenwell

Starz has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming original drama series The Rook starring Emma Greenwell.

The first season will premiere on Sunday, June 30 at 8/7c.

Based on the novel by Daniel O'Malley, Greenwell stars as 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 she discovers she is a high-ranking official in the Checquy, Britain's last truly secret service for people with paranormal abilities, Myfanwy 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 drama also stars Joely Richardson, Olivia Munn, Adrian Lester, Ronan Rafter, Catherine Steadman, Jon Fletcher, Shelley Conn and James D'Arcy.

Sam Holcroft and Al Muriel developed the drama, while Lisa Zwerling and Karyn Usher serve as showrunners on the first season. They executive produce with Stephen Garrett and director Kari Skogland. Lionsgate Television, Liberty Global, Carpool Entertainment and Character 7 produce.
