The Stranger

The Stranger is about a naive, young ride-share driver who is thrown into her worst nightmare when a mysterious Hollywood Hills passenger hitches a ride one night. The film is a narrative feature project directed by Veena Sud.

Sud’s feature film “The Lie” (Blumhouse), which she wrote and directed, premiered as a Gala Screening at the Toronto International Film Festival and on Amazon in 2020. She created, wrote, produced and showran the ground-breaking original television series “The Killing,” the first US television series of its kind to portray a murder mystery over the course of multiple seasons.

The show was nominated for a Golden Globe and six Emmys in 2011, including outstanding cast for a Drama series. Sud was nominated that year for outstanding writing for a Drama series. She was part of The Hollywood Reporter’s 2011 Power Showrunners List and Variety’s Women’s Impact Report.

Sud’s second original series on police violence in America, “Seven Seconds” (Netflix) garnered an Emmy Award for Best Leading Actress, a Golden Globe nomination, and several NAACP Image Awards.
