Netflix has released a scene from upcoming UK drama The Stranger based on the novel from Harlan Coben. The series will be written by seasoned UK writer Danny Brocklehurst.
The stand-alone series, made by Manchester’s Red Production Company is the second Netflix Original collaboration after Safe starring Michael C Hall.
Richard Armitage takes the lead in this new psychological thriller as Adam Price. Price seems to be living the perfect life — two great sons, a watertight marriage — until a stranger approaches him at a bar and reveals a shocking secret about Price’s wife, Corinne.
As Price delves into Corinne’s deception, he soon realises that he’s become entangled in a dark conspiracy that could risk the lives of those around him.
Coben said, “The Stranger was one of my most challenging novels — and definitely the most twisted. When I wrote it, I never imagined that I’d be part of a ‘Dream Team’ of extraordinary talent bringing it to life. I can’t wait to reunite with Danny, Nicola, and Netflix on this remarkable project.”
The Stranger will be released globally on Netflix in 2020
