First Trailer for Intense South American Rescue Thriller Series 'Echo 3'
"How many lives are you willing to trade for your sister?" Apple has revealed an official trailer for a rescue thriller mini-series titled Echo 3, arriving for streaming this November on Apple TV+. Echo 3 is an "action-packed" series about a brilliant scientist kidnapped in Colombia, and her brother and husband who will stop at nothing to find her and bring her home. When Amber Chesborough goes missing along the Colombia-Venezuela border, these men with extensive military experience struggle to find her against the backdrop of a secret war. Echo 3 features Jessica Ann Collins as Amber, Luke Evans as Bambi (her brother), and Michiel Huisman as Prince (her husband), along with Martina Gusman, James Udom, Maria Del Rosario, Alejandro Furth, Juan Pablo Raba, and special guest star, Bradley Whitford. While this is supposed to be a wholesome, riveting story about saving family members, it's clearly a jingoistic reminder of America's imperialism and military attitude. How many other people must die to save her? Are they heroes?
