“Twilight” Author Stephenie Meyer Developing New Hulu TV Show “Rook”
Stephenie Meyer, the author of the Twilight series, is developing a new TV show titled “Rook,” which will exclusively stream on Hulu.
Meyer is working on the upcoming series alongside production company Lionsgate, which owns Summit Entertainment, the distributor of all five Twilight films. The show’s plot details are being mostly kept under wraps, but it’s said to be a one-hour drama featuring a female protagonist with “extraordinary powers.” A potential air date has yet to be announced.
The news adds to the novelist’s big fall season. As Gossip Cop reported last month, Meyer re-released the original Twilight novel, along with bonus content, in honor of the book’s 10th anniversary. Additionally, she released a brand new novel called Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined, which swaps the genders of the main characters.
There’s one project, however, Meyer has yet to complete. She recently scrapped plans to continue working on the Twilight pseudo-sequel Midnight Sun, which tells the same story but from Edward Cullen’s point of view. As Gossip Cop noted in October, Meyers said she was put off after Fifty Shades Of Grey author E.L. James released a similar re-telling of her own novel.
