Apple TV+ has given a straight-to-series order for Echo 3, a new action-thriller written by The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty writer Mark Boal and based on Israeli hit series When Heroes Fly.
Produced by Apple and Keshet Studios, the 10-part series follows the story of Amber Chesborough, a brilliant young American scientist, who 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 Omri Givon’s award-winning Keshet Broadcasting series 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).
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.
