“The Hobbit” and “Berlin Station” star Richard Armitage will lead Netflix’s new limited series “The Stranger” which marks their second collaboration with author Harlan Coben following “Safe”.
Armitage will play Adam Price, a happily married father of two whose life is turned upside-down after a stranger tells him a secret about his wife. The revelation catapults him into a larger world of conspiracy and danger.
The eight-part thriller, produced by the same team as “Safe,” goes into production in March. Coben, Nicola Shindler and Danny Brocklehurst will executive produce the series with Brocklehurst serving as lead writer.
