Netflix have already tried choose-your-own adventure television with Black Mirror episode Bandersnatch, but now they’re taking things a step further with non-linear limited series Kaleidoscope, which encourages viewers to watch the episodes in an order of their choosing, promising that it will affect their viewpoint on the story, the characters, and the questions and answers at the heart of the heist.
Loosely inspired by the real-life story where seventy billion dollars in bonds went missing in downtown Manhattan during Hurricane Sandy, Kaleidoscope consists of eight episodes spanning from 24 years before the heist to 6 months after, and stars Giancarlo Esposito, Rufus Sewell, Paz Vega, Tati Gabrielle, Rosaline Elbay, Jai Courtney, Niousha Noor and Peter Mark Kendall. Check out the trailer here…
Spanning 25 years, Kaleidoscope is an all-new anthology series following a crew of masterful thieves and their attempt to crack a seemingly unbreakable vault for the biggest payday in history. Guarded by the world’s most powerful corporate security team, and with law enforcement on the case, every episode reveals a piece of an elaborate puzzle of corruption, greed, vengeance, scheming, loyalties and betrayals. How did the crew of thieves plan it? Who gets away with it? Who can be trusted?
Kaleidoscope streams on Netflix from January 1st, 2023.
