Next Episode of American Odyssey is
not planed. TV Show was canceled.
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 and their families is by joining forces and exposing the people behind it. (source: www.nbc.com)
In North Africa, Sgt. Odelle Ballard stumbles upon computer files that show a major U.S corporation is secretly funding terrorists. She is able to download the files onto a jump drive, but her unit is attacked before she can tell anyone. While the world is told that her entire team was tragically wiped out by enemy militants, Odelle, the sole survivor, knows the truth: they were attacked by private AMERICAN military contractors because of the information she has on her jump drive. In New York City, corporate litigator Peter Decker finds himself embroiled with the same corporation Odelle discovered to be funding jihadists. As Peter begins to connect the dots of corruption in the private sphere, political activist Harrison Walters suspects a government cover-up when he meets a hacker with proof that Odelle is still alive.
Sgt. Odelle Ballard, aware of the target on her back, desperately tries to avoid detection as she and her young Malian companion Aslam hide among the Tuareg on their pilgrimage through the desert. In New York, Harrison Walters fears for his own reputation when hacker Bob becomes reluctant to share his evidence that Odelle Ballard is alive. Racked with guilt over the murder of drone pilot Danny Gentry, Peter takes his suspicions about Societel to the Department of Justice and faces threats after attempting to gather information against the company from within.
Now captive in Bamako, Odelle must prove her value to an Ansar Dine interrogator. Meanwhile, in New York, Harrison reluctantly turns to his famous journalist father for help when he learns he has a connection to Colonel Glen. Peter finds himself in danger after uncovering new evidence against Societel Mining. Under pressure, he takes a meeting with Sophia Tsaladari, the leading candidate for Greek Prime Minister - which leads to an unexpected breakthrough.
Odelle reaches a détente with her Ansar Dine captor, as both Aslam and Frank Majors increase their respective efforts to find her. In New York, Peter discovers his investigation of Societiel Mining is being complicated by the involvement of a US Senator. Harrison prepares to deliver the eulogy at his late father's funeral, and Bob reveals that Randall's death is not all that it appears.
On orders from Colonel Glen, Odelle makes her way to a secret CIA safe house, but soon realizes that Glen may not be acting in her best interest. In New York, Peter discovers that Joe is under "investigation" by Societel Mining, and his increasingly paranoid behavior disturbs his wife and daughter. Looking for clues about his father's murder, Harrison and Bob try to get in touch with Randall's last source.
After seeing Aslam's picture on Shakir Kahn's television show, Odelle is finally reunited with her young friend. Maya's relationship with Cameron deepens, worrying Peter, who believes that the young man is a Societel Mining spy. Still hot on his father's trail, Harrison inquires about a story his father never finished.
Peter breaks into an Societel Mining warehouse to uncover more evidence on the company's misdeeds but the mission does not go as planned. Isabel Rainey comes to Club Cachette to hear Odelle's story but Odelle and Aslam are forced to run, leaving Shakir Khan to fend for himself. Harrison and Bob finally make contact with Yusuf Qasim, a man who may have answers to their questions.
Odelle and Aslam are hit hard by Frank Majors' attack on Shakir Khan. Meanwhile, a desperate Peter makes a deal with Societel Mining CEO Alex Baker, as his marriage reaches a breaking point. Bob gets closer to discovering Ruby's true identity, though what he discovers might not be enough to stop her relationship with Harrison. Also, Suzanne makes a new friend.
Luc comes to Odelle and Aslam's (Omar Ghazaoui) rescue, and Odelle learns about the mysterious Frenchman's past. Back in New York, Sophia Tsaldari helps Peter get closer to Yusuf Qasim and further exacerbates the rift with his family. Bob tells Harrison the truth about Ruby, which has unintended consequences. Suzanne and Julia continue to bond, raising questions for both Ron and Col. Glen
Now with an unconscious Frank in their captivity, Odelle, Aslam and Luc, must figure out what to do with him. Peter finally makes contact with Yusuf Qasim while Ruby is forced to come to terms with the fact that her mission is not yet complete.
While held hostage by the mysterious Dogon shaman, Odelle is taken on a strange trip, during which she is forced to confront the ghosts of her recent past. Meanwhile, back in New York, Peter reaches his lowest point yet, as both his professional life and personal life take dramatic hits. Harrison and Ruby go on a romantic vacation.
Odelle gets used to a new life while in Algeria with Luc and Aslam, but it doesn't last.
As the world discovers that the truth about Odelle, she and Aslam find refuge in Barcelona with someone from Luc's past.
