“I’m honoured to collaborate with the team at AppleTV+ who gave me the opportunity to make the series I wanted to make – one that feels big and purposeful and refuses to stay in any lane,” Boal said. “This is a black-ops thriller and tale of international intrigue, set in Colombia, a country I had known only from afar and immediately fell in love with.” 

Boal will showrun the series and serve as a director and executive producer alongside Keshet Studios’ Peter Traugott, Jason Horwitch, Omri Givon, Eitan Mansuri, Jonathan Doweck, Mark Sourian, Avi Nir, Alon Shtruzman, and Karni Ziv. Pablo Trapero directed four episodes, including the pilot, and joined Boal as an executive producer.

With films like Zero Dark ThirtyTriple Frontier, and The Hurt Locker to his name, Boal is a proven strategist regarding action thrillers. It will be interesting to see what he achieves with Apple TV+’s episodic format, with an outstanding cast to back him up. Let’s go!
