That Kaleidoscope featurette promises a unique streaming experience for its viewers as it highlights the show’s non-linear approach to storytelling. The video also features commentary from the creators and cast as they discussed the process of building the show’s complex and innovative storyline, where viewers will enter the crime scene at different times.

“Spanning 25 years, it follows a crew of master thieves as they attempt to crack a seemingly unbreakable vault for the biggest payday in history,” reads the synopsis. “Guarded by the world’s most powerful corporate security team and with law enforcement on the case, each episode reveals a piece of an intricate puzzle of corruption, greed, revenge, schemes, loyalties and betrayal. How did the crew of thieves plan it? Who will get away with it? Who can can be trusted?”

Kaleidoscope (formerly the title Jigsaw) is created and executive produced by Eric Garcia, who is also set as showrunner. It is loosely inspired by the true story where $70 billion in bonds disappeared in downtown Manhattan during Hurricane Sandy. The series consists of eight episodes, spanning from 24 years before the theft to six months after.

The series takes a non-linear approach to storytelling, building intrigue and suspense uniquely, with Netflix members each having a different immersive viewing experience. Some members may start with certain episodes (like “Yellow” or “Green” episodes) and then move deeper into their own personal viewing order with different episodes (“Blue” or “Violet” or “Orange” followed by “Red” or “Pink”) until the epic “White: The Heist” story finale.

The series stars Giancarlo Esposito as Leo Pop, Paz Vega as Ava Mercer, Rufus Sewell as Roger Salas, Tati Gabrielle as Hannah Kim, Peter Mark Kendall as Stan Loomis, Rosaline Elbay as Judy Goodwin, Jai Courtney as Bob Goodwin and Niousha Noor as Nazan Abbasi .
