Starz dropped some never-before-seen footage from its supernatural spy thriller drama series The Rook today at San Diego Comic-Con. Stars Emma Greenwell (Shameless, The Path), Joely Richardson (Nip/Tuck, Red Sparrow) and Olivia Munn (The Newsroom, The Predator) appeared on the show’s panel, moderated by Emmy-winning journalist Catt Sadler.
Based on the novel by Daniel O’Malley, The Rook is adapted and co-produced by playwrights and screenwriters Sam Holcroft and Al Muriel. It stars Greenwell 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 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.
Adrian Lester, Ronan Rafter, Catherine Steadman, Jon Fletcher, Shelley Conn and James D’Arcy also star.
