Apple TV+ will premiere “Echo 3,” a 10-episode action-thriller created by Academy Award-winner Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker, Zero Dark Thirty), with the first three episodes Nov. 23, followed by one new episode weekly every Friday through Jan. 13, 2023.
The series stars Luke Evans and Michiel Huisman alongside Jessica Ann Collins and is filmed in Colombia with English and Spanish dialogue.
“Echo 3” is set in South America and follows Amber Chesborough (Collins), a brilliant young scientist who is the emotional heart of a small American family. When Amber goes missing along the Colombia-Venezuela border, her brother, Bambi (Evans), and her husband, Prince (Huisman) — two men with deep military experience and complicated pasts — struggle to find her in a layered personal drama, set against the explosive backdrop of a secret war. “Echo 3” also stars Martina Gusman as Violetta, a prominent political columnist. The series features James Udom, Maria Del Rosario, Alejandro Furth, Juan Pablo Raba and special guest star Bradley Whitford. “Echo 3” is also based on the award-winning series “When Heroes Fly,” created by Omri Givon, and inspired by the eponymous novel by Amir Gutfreund.
“I’m honored to collaborate with the team at AppleTV+ who gave me the opportunity to make the series I wanted to make — one that feels big and purposeful and refuses to stay in any lane,” Boal said in a statement. “This is a black-ops thriller and tale of international intrigue, set in Colombia, a country I had known only from afar and immediately fell in love with.”
