Twilight Creator Stephenie Meyer is Working on New TV Series!

Twilight author Stephenie Meyer has a new supernatural TV series in the works!

While the title, The Rook, might make you wonder if it will have anything to do with Twilight – Edward Cullen and Bella Swan did love to play chess, after all – it will actually be based on the 2012 novel of the same name by Daniel O’Malley.

Starz made the announcement on Friday (July 28) at the Summer TCA Press Tour.

Here’s the synopsis from Starz: “The Rook tells the story of a young woman who wakes up in a London park suffering total amnesia – surrounded by dead bodies, all wearing latex gloves. Pursued by shadowy paranormal adversaries, grappling with peculiar ‘abilities’ of her own, she must fight to uncover her past, and resume her position at the head of Britain’s most secret (supernatural) service… before the traitors who stole her memory can finish what they started.”

The Rook, set for a 2018 premiere date, will feature “one of the most fascinating and thrilling female protagonists on television,” according to Starz CEO Chris Albrecht (via Vanity Fair).

No word on casting yet, but Stephenie will co-executive produce.
