He gave few other details other than noting that Meyer will executive produce, the series has a new female protagonist with “extraordinary powers” and that the studio has a well-established relationship with Meyer.

“The Rook,” a novel by Daniel O’Malley, is set in London where the central character awakens with no memory and discovers that she is an operative in a secret agency that protects the world from supernatural threats.
