Today Quibi released a brand new behind-the-scenes featurette of Veena Sud’s THE STRANGER. Throughout the course of the featurette, we learn more about the story and its development into what it is for the new mobile streaming app.
We learn that the series takes place over the course of one night in Los Angeles, with Dane DeHaan’s character seeking out Maika Monroe’s character because she puts up more of a fight than he expected. Due to the shorter duration of the episodes, there is a discussion about how packed full the episodes are to make the most of the time the story has.
Do you know who awaits you when your rideshare passenger arrives? We have no idea what walks into our cars when we hear that dinging on our phones for a ride request. Sometimes the people we carry are far more dangerous than we could have ever hoped.
An unassuming young rideshare driver is thrown into her worst nightmare when a mysterious Hollywood Hills passenger enters her car. Her terrifying, heart-stopping ride with The Stranger unfolds over 12 horrifying hours as she navigates the seedy underbelly of Los Angeles in a spine-chilling game of cat and mouse.
The Stranger is from Fox 21 Television studios and is created, written, and directed by Emmy nominated writer and director, Veena Sud (“The Killing”, “The Lie”).
THE STRANGER is now streaming via Quibi. New chapters of the series appear every weekday. Are you ready to question choosing a rideshare? Because this might do the trick.
