The Veil: Elisabeth Moss to star in Steven Knight’s new limited series thriller on Hulu

Elisabeth Moss and Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight are joining forces for The Veil, a new limited series thriller destined for Hulu. FX ordered the project written and executive produced by Knight alongside PatMa Productions’ Denise Di Novi and Nina Tassler, and Moss with Lindsey McManus under their Love & Squalor Pictures label.

According to DeadlineThe Veil explores the surprising and fraught relationship between two women who play a deadly game of truth and lies on the road from Istanbul to Paris and London. One woman has a secret, the other a mission to reveal it before thousands of lives are lost.

“We’re excited to continue our partnership with Steven Knight on The Veil and thrilled to have Elisabeth Moss sign on for the lead role,” said Nick Grad, President, Original Programming FX, in a statement. “Steven’s scripts are riveting and no doubt will showcase Elisabeth’s exceptional talent.”

“I’m absolutely thrilled to be telling this story, which is truly international and very contemporary,” said Knight in a statement. “We have gathered together some of the most talented people in the business. Working with Denise Di Novi is always a pleasure and I’ve wanted to work with Elisabeth Moss for a long time. Of course, FX and I are old friends. I think this will be a landmark television event.”

Famously known for playing Peggy Olson on AMC’s Mad Men, Moss is a tour de force who’s starred in projects like Jordan Peele’s Us, Leigh Whannell’s The Invisible ManShining GirlsThe Handmaid’s Tale, and more. She consistently owns any role she’s given, and I look forward to seeing her in Knight’s latest project.
