After finding success in both television and film, Stephenie Meyer is getting into television. Variety has reported that the “Twilight” author is teaming with Lionsgate to develop “Rook,” an new television series that will air on Hulu.
No details have been revealed about “Rook’s” plot, as the project was first mentioned by Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer to analysts during the studio’s earnings call. Lionsgate, through their subsidiary Summit Entertainment, distributed all five of the “Twilight” films. Referencing that history, Feltheimer told those on the call that the studio has a well-established relationship with Meyer.
The series will be an adaptation of the 2012 novel of the same name by writer Daniel O’Malley. The Rook centered on Myfanwy (pronounced like “Tiffany” with an “M”) Thomas – an agent in an alternate version of Britain’s MI-6 tasked with protecting the UK from attacks by the supernatural.
In addition to penning the four “Twilight” novels and producing the final two “Twilight” films, Meyer also served as producer for the film adaptation of “The Host,” which was based on her 2008 novel.
