NBC's own mini-Homeland, Odyssey kicks off with the killing of Al Qaeda's top commander and unravels into a Traffic-like international conspiracy thriller involving global politics, corporate espionage, and military secrets. Pushing Daisies alum Anna Friel stars as Special Forces soldier Odelle, who discovers that a major U.S. corporation is funding jihadists, but her entire team is attacked and murdered before she can tell anyone the truth. Meanwhile, Peter Facinelli (Nurse Jackie) plays a disillusioned corporate attorney working with the company that's funneling money to terrorists, and Jake Robinson (The Carrie Diaries) plays a political activist who befriends a hacker claiming to have unearthed the same conspiracy Odelle stumbled onto. As you might expect, the only way these three strangers can save their country, their families, and themselves is by joining forces and blowing the whole thing wide open.
