London — Stephen Garrett, founder of “Mi-5” and “Life on Mars” producer Kudos, has launched production company Character Seven, which is developing “The Rook,” a London-set supernatural series for Hulu, with “Twilight” author Stephenie Meyer’s company Fickle Fish and Lionsgate.

Garrett, who co-founded Kudos in 1992 and was later joint managing director with Jane Featherstone, oversaw a run of TV series hits including “Mi-5” (known as “Spooks” in the U.K.), “Hustle” and “Life on Mars.” As a film producer and executive producer, Garrett’s credits include “Eastern Promises,” “Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day” and “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen.”

Since leaving the Endemol Shine Group-owned company in 2014, Garrett has been working on projects that bring together international talents. His first credit under Character Seven, in partnership with the Ink Factory, is the John le Carré adaptation “The Night Manager,” starring Tom Hiddleston, Hugh Laurie and Elizabeth Debicki.
