Apple TV+ releases “Echo 3

Life style and Tech -This Friday, Apple TV+ sees the launch of “Echo 3”, the much anticipated action series directed by Mark Boal, the Academy Award winning writer of The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty, for Apple Original Films.

Set in South America, this action-packed thriller follows a brilliant American scientist named Amber Chesborough (Jessica Ann Collins) who goes missing along the Colombia-Venezuela border. When the news is broken to her brother, Bambi (Luke Evans), and her husband, Prince (Michiel Huisman) — two men with deep military experience and complicated pasts — they set off to find Amber at any cost, against the explosive backdrop of a secret war.

“Echo 3” was based on the award-winning series “When Heroes Fly”, created by Omri Givon, and inspired by the eponymous novel by Amir Gutfreund. The series is exclusively produced for Apple TV+ by Keshet Studios, the U.S. production arm of Keshet International. The series is helmed by Boal, who also serves as a director and executive producer alongside Keshet Studios’ Peter Traugott, Jason Horwitch, Omri Givon, Eitan Mansuri, Jonathan Doweck, Mark Sourian, Avi Nir, Alon Shtruzman and Karni Ziv, with Pablo Trapero directing four episodes including the pilot and serving an executive producer.

“Echo 3” joins an ever-growing catalogue of Apple Originals from award-winning global storytellers, including the soon-to-premiere “Emancipation,” starring Academy Award winning actor Will Smith – a film inspired by the 1863 photos of “Whipped Peter”, taken during a Union Army medical examination, that first appeared in Harper’s Weekly.
