lionsgateAccording to Deadline, Stephenie Meyer is set to be the executive producer on a HULU-based series. If you remember, Lionsgate bought out Summit Entertainment (the Studio that produced teh Twilight movies) just as the Breaking dawn films began releasing.

Deadline states:

Lionsgate is developing a new, one-hour series with Twilight novelist Stephenie Meyer titled The Rook that will play on Hulu and on an unnamed, leading British broadcaster, it was revealed today during the studio’s morning call with analysts. The move deepens the relationship between the studio and Meyer, whose Twilight series has been one of the most successful franchises the industry has ever seen with five movies that collectively made over $3.3 billion at the worldwide box office for the studio. The Rook is based on the novel by Daniel O’Malley who has a sequel coming out next year with the second in the series called Stiletto.
