Jake Robinson suits up with a pink tie as he steps out for the 2014 NBC Upfront Presentation held at The Jacob K. Javits Convention Center on Monday (May 12) in New York City.
“Happy to announce that Odyssey has been picked up to a full series order in NBC!” Jake tweeted. “Celebrating NBC’s Odyssey with my fellow cast members, Peter Facinelli and Anna Friel, at NBC Upfronts”
In this Traffic-like action drama, an international conspiracy explodes when three strangers’ lives unexpectedly collide — a female soldier, a corporate lawyer and a political activist. After a team of American soldiers battle Jihadists in North Africa, they’re shocked to find that one of the men they killed is Al Qaeda’s top man. Sgt. Odelle Ballard (Friel) — a soldier, mother, wife and the unit’s only female member — discovers computer files that suggest a major U.S. corporation is funding the Jihadists.

But before she can tell anyone, her team is attacked and left for dead. News is reported that the unit was wiped out, but the truth is that Odelle survived and is the only witness to her unit’s assassination by U.S. Special Forces. In New York, former U.S. Attorney Peter Drucker (Facinelli) is working on a merger deal for the same company that was funneling money to the Jihadists.
Meanwhile, Harrison Wolcott (Robinson), a political activist and trust fund kid, meets a hacker who claims to have unearthed a massive military-industrial conspiracy. And he’s right: He’s stumbled onto the cover-up that began with Odelle and will soon be out in the open and everyone’s lives will be in danger. The only way they’ll ever save their country, their families and themselves is by joining forces and exposing the people behind it.
