Kaleidoscope: Giancarlo Esposito, Tati Gabrielle to Star in Heist Drama For Netflix


Giancarlo and Tati Gabrielle are among eight cast in Kaleidoscope, an action heist drama inspired by the seventy billion dollars that went missing during Hurricane Sandy.

is Netflix’s new anthology series that will give viewers their own unique experience watching a team of skillful thieves attempt to pull off a robbery they’ve been planning for over 20 years.

“Every episode had multiple connections to every other episode,” said the show’s creator, showrunner and executive producer Eric Garcia in the clip. Garcia is also one of the “Kaleidoscope” writers.

Paz Vega and Rufus Sewell will lead the series alongside Esposito. Peter Mark Kendall, Rosaline Elbay, Jai Courtney and Niousha Noor round out the cast.

In the eight-part series, the audience will follow “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,” reads a description of the show, which premieres on Netflix Jan. 1.

Netflix will experiment with nonlinear programming to this story. According to sources viewers will be able to choose in which order they watch episodes leading up to a finale that wraps up the story (Paramount+’s series Interrogation, released last year, used a similar format).

Esposito will play Leo Pap, a natural leader and veteran thief who can’t stay away from the game. Gabrielle will play Hannah Kim, an intelligent adaptable woman who flows between the worlds of high finance and crime.
