Moved up from its usual Friday release time, Apple TV+ today released the first three episodes of its new action thriller series Echo 3, starring Luke Evans and Michiel Huisman.
The series focuses on the rescue of Amber, a brilliant young scientist. With no one else stepping up to the plate, military veterans Bambi and Prince, her brother and husband respectively, embark on a treacherous mission to locate and rescue her.
Amber Chesborough (played by Jessica Ann Collins) is researching addiction, and travels to Colombia to study whether hallucinogens can help treat addiction habits. However, she is captured by rebels somewhere along the Colombia-Venezuela border.
When no one official will help look for her, naturally her relatives of Special Forces pedigree set out to find her. This charts out the balance of the series, which shows how brother Bambi and husband Prince, played by Luke Evans and Michiel Huisman, engage in battle with the rebels to bring her home.
The series hails from The Hurt Locker writer Mark Boal. It is based on popular Israeli series ‘When Heroes Fly’.
