Lionsgate is developing “The Rook,” a new one-hour TV series with “Twilight” novelist Stephenie Meyer which will play on Hulu and on an unnamed and leading British broadcaster.
Based on the novel by Daniel O’Malley, the story follows a woman with extraordinary powers named Myfanwy Thomas. Thomas who is employed by a mysterious British government agency responsible for defending the UK from supernatural threats.
The announcement deepens the relationship between the studio and Meyer, whose Twilight series has been one of the most successful franchises for the studio.
Lionsgate has been keen on a reboot or continuation of the “Twilight” franchise but so far Meyer, who will executive produce “The Rook,” has expressed any interest.
