EXCLUSIVE: Jessica Ann Collins (Clickbait) is set as the female lead opposite Luke Evans and Michiel Huisman in Apple’s Echo 3 action-thriller drama series from Oscar winner Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker) and Keshet Studios.
Echo 3 is set in South America and follows Amber Chesborough (Collins), a brilliant young scientist who is the emotional center of a small American family. When she goes missing along the Colombia-Venezuela border, her brother (Evans) and her husband (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.
The 10-part series is based on the award-winning Keshet Broadcasting series When Heroes Fly, created by Omri Givon and inspired by the eponymous novel by Amir Gutfreund. Given a straight-to-series order by Apple in July, Echo 3 will be shot with English and Spanish dialogue.
