Apple TV+ released the first three episodes of its new thriller series Echo 3, starring Luke Evans and Michiel Huisman, on Wednesday, November 23, ahead of its usual Friday schedule. This is not surprising because the last Friday of November is the one reserved for Black Friday and above all, the Thursday before it is Thanksgiving, the most important day for Americans.
A thriller series on Apple TV+
The Echo 3 series focuses on rescuing Amber, a brilliant young scientist. With no one else intervening, military veterans Bambi (Luke Evans) and Prince (Michiel Huisman), her brother and husband respectively, embark on a perilous mission to locate and rescue her.
Amber Chesborough (Jessica Ann Collins) researches addiction, and travels to Colombia to study if hallucinogens can help treat addictive habits. However, she is captured by rebels somewhere along the Colombia-Venezuela border.
As no official wants to help him find her, it is naturally his relatives, from the special forces, who start looking for him. A very American scenario filled with action and suspense.
The series is signed by the screenwriter of The Hurt Locker, Mark Boal. It is based on the popular Israeli series “When Heroes Fly” and which builds on the novel by Amir Gutfreund.
