The Rook premieres


Myfanwy Thomas who is employed by a secret branch of the British government,  called the Checquy, that deals with the paranormally gifted — discovers that she has enhanced capabilities as a series of letters and recorded messages lead her to her apartment, to her office and to meet an assortment of co-workers including the icy Linda Farrier, the inscrutable Conrad Grantchester, and the four-part consciousness-sharing Gestalt.

Entering to cause complication is Monica Reed, a uniquely gifted operative with the American equivalent of the Checquy.

The series combines elements of a mutant-superhero story, a spy thriller and a workplace drama set in a romantically stodgy Anglophilic institution.

Watch it on Starz.
