Why There Are No Smart Phones on The Killing

One among many of our complaints about The Killing is the comically outdated technology everyone on the show uses. Turns out there's a good ("good") reason for that: Creator and executive producer Veena Sud herself is still living in the land of feature phones. "I still have a flip phone," Sud tells the Hollywood Reporter in a drama showrunners roundtable. "I really do! Everyone's mad at me that I don't have a real phone," she says. "I'm really slow with technology." And crime-solving, though she only admitted the tech part.
