The Kaleidoscope, a heist series, has been set to release soon!
The new year has already been predetermined with a dramatic and thrilling crime show, Kaleidoscope. According to Netflix, Eric Garcia’s creation, Kaleidoscope, will premiere on January 1, 2023. Based on the crime narrative, the series Kaleidoscope is executive produced by Eric Garcia, Ridley Scott, David W. Zucker, Jordan Sheehan, Fred Berger, Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, Justin Levy, and Russell Fine.
Though crime narratives have been buzzing the virtual world for many years, still, the significance of the genre has remained the same due to the subject’s timeliness, present consistently within the actual time frame. Let’s observe what Netflix has to reveal in the Kaleidoscope series down to this floor.
Revelations about the Kaleidoscope Series on Netflix
Netflix Revealed the Kaleidoscope’s Synopsis!
Recently, Netflix released an official synopsis for the Kaleidoscope, teasing that the series’s central thematic and dramatic concern is the “heist,” which will further complex the story with greed, corruption, betrayals, and so on. As the synopsis reveals:
“A master thief and his crew attempt an epic and elaborate heist worth 7 billion dollars — but betrayal, greed, and other threats undermine their plans.”
The series Kaleidoscope started its filming, previously, under the title of Jigsaw, in September 2021. Later in the same month, this American crime show, the Kaleidoscope, was ordered to develop into eight nonlinear episodes on September 16, 2021.
Netflix Revealed the Concept Behind the Nonlinear Series Production for the Kaleidoscope
In November 2022, Netflix’s official Youtube released a video. In the video, Giancarlo Esposito shares the concept behind a nonlinear filming of the Kaleidoscope. Esposito describes:
“We as human beings tend to assume. Our brains are always looking to be one step ahead. Because of that, we start to think we know what someone’s thinking or where they’re going. This show breaks that convention and will help us return to the present and wait for the answer.”
In the Inside Look video, the showrunner Eric Garcia expresses further the nonlinear conception of the Kaleidoscope series. He explains that nonlinear production emerged from the “structural place.” Garcia declares “batch delivery” as a critical concept supporting the nonlinear portrayal of the story while counter-arguing the conventional presentation that “… why you should have to watch them, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight.”
Notably, the nonlinear set episodes for the Kaleidoscope, alongside Eric Garcia, will be written by Garrett Lerner, Kate Barnow, Kalen Egan, Ning Zhou, Evan Endicott, and Josh Stoddard (co-writing the eighth episode), as per Writers Guild of America West.
Interestingly, it is noticeable that the Kaleidoscope series from the beginning grasped the attention of its well-written script, as Rufus Sewell, one of the main cast actors, exclaims in the Netflix’s Youtube release: “I loved how unusual it was. And my first thought was, “Well, that’s a great gimmick. Thank God it is also really well written.” This may be an initial achievement for the writers and a motivational chunk for the series Kaleidoscope’s future success on the screen.
The Real-Life Inspiration Behind the Kaleidoscope
In an Inside Look video, Eric Garcia further reveals the Kaleidoscope’s inspirational creative motif. In the video, he explains that the story resides on a potentially real story about the tremendous loss of $70,000,000,000 in Hurricane Sandy.
Most importantly, what can be assumed, as a more triggering fact, to come up with a crime plot like Kaleidoscope, is his first experiential thought: “‘Oh, someone made off with $70,000,000,000,’ and is using Hurricane Sandy as like a perfect excuse”.
The Kaleidoscope’s Official Trailer: Glimpses of the Nonlinear Crime Narrative
As the time is coming closer and closer for the Kaleidoscope’s official release, the series is gradually spacing its virtual place out on the screen. The original network, Netflix, released the official trailer on December 13, 2022.
