From writer-director Peter Horton ("Grey's Anatomy") and writers Adam Armus ("Heroes") and 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. The series stars Anna Friel ("Pushing Daisies"), Peter Facinelli ("Nurse Jackie"), Jake Robinson ("The Carrie Diaries"), Nate Mooney ("The Riches"), Jim True-Frost ("The Wire"), Sadie Sink, Omar Ghazaoui, Elena Kampouris ("Men, Women & Children"), Daniella Pineda, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje ("Lost") and Treat Williams ("Everwood"). In addition to Horton, Armus, and Foster, Mikkel Bondesen ("The Killing), Henrik Bastin ("Bosch"), Kristen Campo ("The Killing") and Simon Maxwell ("Off the Hook") serve as executive producers. Premiering on April 5, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on NBC, "Odyssey" is a Universal Television, Fabrik Entertainment, and Red Arrow Entertainment production.
