Awaken the power within in Starz’s The Rook trailer

Starz has released the official trailer for their upcoming supernatural spy thriller The Rook, highlighting the lead character’s mission to find out why her memories were wiped out while also trying to take control of her unfamiliar powers. Starring Emma Greenwell, Joely Richardson and Olivia Munn, the series is set to make its debut on June 30. Check out the video in the player below!

The Rook will follow the story of a woman named Myfanwy Thomas, who is pursued by shadowy paranormal adversaries while grappling with extraordinary abilities of her own. She suddenly wakes up in the rain beside London’s Millennium Bridge suffering from total amnesia — surrounded by dead bodies, all wearing latex gloves. She must fight to uncover her past and resume her position as a high-ranking official of Britain’s most secret (supernatural) service called the Checquy before the traitors who stole her memory can finish what they started.

Also starring are Paula Patton (Somewhere Between) as the lead villain, and Adrian Lester (Hustle) as Conrad Grantchester, along with Ronan Raftery (The Terror) and Catherine Steadman (Downton Abbey) as the Gestalt siblings.
