About the Show

American Odyssey is an American thriller television series created by Peter Horton, Adam Armus and Kay Foster, which revolves around the discovery by a U.S. Army team on a secret mission in Mali that a major company has been funding Islamist terror groups.

It follows the subsequent cover-up of this revelation, which involves the attack and killing of the team of U.S. soldiers by private military contractors dispatched by the same company.

From writer-director Peter Horton (Grey's Anatomy) and writers Adam Armus and Kay Foster (The Following) comes American 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 cover-up explodes when the lives of a female Special Forces soldier, a disillusioned corporate lawyer and a political activist from a privileged family unexpectedly collide.

After a team of American soldiers battles jihadists in North Africa, they're shocked to learn that they've stumbled upon and killed Al Qaeda's top commander.

Sergeant Odelle Ballard (Anna Friel, Pushing Daisies), a soldier, mother, wife and the unit's only female member, discovers computer files that prove a major U.S. corporation is funding the jihadists.

But before she can tell anyone, her team is attacked and killed. The world is told that the unit was wiped out by enemy militants, but the truth is that Odelle survived and is the only witness to her unit's true assassins: private military contractors - Osela (think Blackwater).

As Odelle struggles to survive and find her way home, in New York, former U.S. attorney turned corporate litigator Peter Decker (Peter Facinelli, Nurse Jackie) finds himself embroiled in a merger with the same company that funded the jihadists.

As Peter begins to connect the corrupt dots of this company's terrorist involvement, Harrison Walters (Jake Robinson, The Carrie Diaries), a political activist and trust fund kid, meets a hacker, Bob Offer (Nate Mooney, The Riches), who claims to have unearthed a massive military-industrial-complex cover-up.

And Bob is right: he's stumbled onto the same cover-up that Odelle discovered, which will soon become a national headline with lethal implications.

The only way they'll ever save their country, their families and themselves is by joining forces and exposing the people behind it.

The series also stars Jim True-Frost (The Wire), Sadie Sink, Omar Ghazaoui, Elena Kampouris (Men, Women & Children), Daniella Pineda, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Lost) and Treat Williams (Everwood).

American Odyssey is a Universal Television, Fabrik Entertainment and Red Arrow Entertainment production. The series was created by Peter Horton (Grey's Anatomy), Adam Armus (Heroes) and Kay Foster (The Following).

Mikkel Bondesen (The Killing), Henrik Bastin (Bosch), Kristen Campo (The Killing) and Simon Maxwell (Off the Hook) serve as executive producers along with Horton, Armus and Foster.
