Video: NBC’s New Drama Series Odyssey Premieres Sunday, April 5

Share

OdysseyWith this new series coming out in April, I’m surprised I haven’t seen more advertising/promotions for the show. In viewing the trailers for Odyssey, I’m more than intrigued. I adore lead actress Anna Friel, whom many of you may remember as Charlotte from ABC’s short lived series Pushing Daises. She’s been in several films as well including Land of the Lost (2009) and Timeline (2003). In Odyssey, Friel plays Sgt. Odelle Ballard and is the only female member in her combat unit. See the synopsis below and view the trailer. I’m anxious to see how this series plays out. Odyssey premieres Sunday, April 5, 2015 at 10/9c on NBC.

 

From writer-director Peter Horton (“Grey’s Anatomy”) and writers Adam Armus & Kay Foster (“The Following”) comes “Odyssey,” a complex journey through global politics, corporate espionage, and military secrets involving three strangers who only have one thing in common … the truth. In this “Traffic”-like action drama, an international conspiracy explodes when the lives of a female Special Forces soldier, a disillusioned corporate lawyer and a political activist from a privileged family unexpectedly collide.

After a team of American soldiers battles jihadists in North Africa, they’re shocked to learn that they’ve stumbled upon and killed Al Qaeda’s top commander. Sgt. Odelle Ballard (Anna Friel, “Pushing Daisies”) — a soldier, mother, wife and the unit’s only female member — discovers computer files that prove that a major U.S. corporation is funding the jihadists. But before she can tell anyone, her team is attacked and killed. The world is told that the unit was wiped out by enemy militants, but the truth is that Odelle survived and is the only witness to her unit’s true assassins: private military contractors Osela (think “Blackwater”).

As Odelle struggles to survive and find her way home, in New York former U.S. Attorney turned corporate litigator Peter Decker (Peter Facinelli, “Nurse Jackie”) finds himself embroiled in a merger with the same company that funded the jihadists. As Peter begins to connect the corrupt dots of this company’s terrorist involvement, Harrison Walters (Jake Robinson, “The Carrie Diaries”), a political activist and trust fund kid, meets a hacker, Bob Offer (Nate Mooney, “The Riches”), who claims to have unearthed a massive military-industrial-complex conspiracy. Bob is right: He’s stumbled onto the same cover-up that Odelle discovered, which will soon become a national headline with lethal implications. The only way they’ll ever save their country, their families and themselves is by joining forces and exposing the people behind it.

The series also stars Omar Ghazaoui, Treat Williams (“Everwood”), Elena Kampouris (“Men, Women & Children”), Daniella Pineda, Jim True-Frost (“The Wire”), Sadie Sink, and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (“Lost”).

“Odyssey” is a Universal Television, Fabrik Entertainment, and Red Arrow Entertainment production. The series was created by Peter Horton (“Grey’s Anatomy”), Adam Armus (“Heroes”), and Kay Foster (“The Following”). Mikkel Bondesen (“The Killing”), Henrik Bastin (“Bosch”), Kristen Campo (“The Killing”) and Simon Maxwell (“Off the Hook”) serve as executive producers along with Horton, Armus and Foster.
