Los Angeles, Jan 28 (PTI) Actor Richard Armitage will play the lead in Netflix's new thriller series "The Stranger". According to Deadline, the eight-episode series will be produced by the same team that previously backed Michael C Hall-starrer "Safe" for the streaming giant. Based on Harlan Coben's best selling novel, the series will follow Adam Price (Armitage), 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. Coben will executive produce the series along with Danny Brocklehurst, who will serve as lead writer, and Nicola Shindler. Armitage, 47, is best known for playing Thorin Oakenshield in Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit" series. He currently stars in Severin Fiala and Veronika Franz's "The Lodge", which is set to be screened at the ongoing Sundance Film Festival. PTI RB RB RB
