Mark Boal’s Echo 3 Thriller Series Coming to Apple TV+

-

Apple has given a straight-to-series order for Echo 3, a new action-thriller written by Academy Award-winning producer and writer Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker, Zero Dark Thirty) that will be produced by Apple and Keshet Studios.

Set in South America, the 10-part series is the latest project to join a growing lineup of premium international series set to make their global debut on Apple TV+.

In Echo 3, Amber Chesborough, a brilliant young scientist, is the emotional center of a small American family. When she goes missing along the Colombia-Venezuela border, her brother and her husband – 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.

Based on the award-winning Keshet Broadcasting series When Heroes Fly (of which you can view photos in this article), created by Omri Givon and inspired by the eponymous novel by Amir Gutfreund, Echo 3 will be shot with English and Spanish dialogue.

Boal will serve as showrunner, alongside co-showrunner and executive producer Jason Horwitch (Berlin Station, House of Cards). The series will be produced by Apple and Keshet Studios.

Keshet Studios’ Peter Traugott will serve as executive producer alongside Mark Boal, Jason Horwitch, Stan Wlodkowski, Omri Givon, Eitan Mansuri, Jonathan Doweck, Avi Nir (Keshet Media Group), Alon Shtruzman (Keshet International) and Karni Ziv (Keshet Broadcasting).

This marks the second straight-to-series order from Apple and one of Keshet International’s production arms, following Suspicion, Keshet Productions’ new drama starring Uma Thurman and based on Amit Cohen and Maria Feldman’s award-winning Israeli series False Flag for Keshet Broadcasting.

Echo 3 joins Apple’s growing slate of sweeping international Apple Originals from award-winning storytellers, as well as new stories from the multi-Academy Award, Golden Globe and BAFTA Award-winning director, writer, producer, cinematographer and editor Alfonso Cuarón, who currently has an overall deal to develop television projects exclusively for Apple TV+ through his production company Esperanto Filmoj.

Upcoming international original series slated to premiere on Apple TV+ include Masters of the Air, a new limited drama series from Apple Studios and executive produced by Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television, and Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman’s Playtone; Slow Horses, an international espionage thriller starring Academy Award winner Gary Oldman; Shantaram, based on Gregory David Robert’s best-selling novel and starring Charlie Hunnam; and Pachinko, a drama series based on The New York Times best-selling acclaimed novel by Min Jin Lee, and written and executive produced by Soo Hugh.

Apple TV+ is available on the Apple TV app on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iPod touch, Mac, select Samsung and LG smart TVs, Amazon Fire TV and Roku devices, as well as at tv.apple.com. The Apple TV app will be available on Sony and VIZIO smart TVs later this year.
