FX Picks Up Limited Series 'The Veil' Starring Elisabeth Moss

FX has today given a series order to the original limited series The Veil starring Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid's Tale, Shining Girls). An episode count and premiere date window were not immediately announced.

The gripping thriller will explore 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.

Steven Knight (Taboo, Great Expectations) created the series. He will executive produce with Moss, Denise Di Novi, Nina Tassler and Lindsey McManus. FX Productions, PatMa Productions and Love & Squalor Pictures will produce.

"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 of Original Programming, FX Networks. "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," added Knight. "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."
