Kaleidoscope is a thrilling, action-packed heist drama streaming on Netflix on January 1, 2023 with all 8 episodes released at the same time.         
The series was originally known as Jigsaw before getting its name changed to Kaleidoscope. The names reflect the use of an innovative nonlinear approach to storytelling where you can watch the episodes in any order that you wish (except for "White", the final solution episode). The episodes are not even numbered, the viewers can enter the crime at different moments in time and are in control the narrative.

Episode Titles arranged in chronological order:
“Violet: 24 Years Before the Heist”
“Green: 7 Years Before the Heist”
“Yellow: 6 Weeks Before The Heist”
“Orange: 3 Weeks Before the Heist”
“Blue: 5 Days Before the Heist”
“Red: The Morning After the Heist”
“Pink: 6 Months After”
“White: The Heist” the epic story finale.

Spanning 24 years before the heist and 6 months after, Kaleidoscope centers around the largest heist ever attempted, and the vengeance, scheming, loyalties, and betrayals that surround it. It's loosely inspired by the real-life story where seventy billion dollars in bonds went missing in downtown Manhattan during Hurricane Sandy. The series takes us into the minds of a crew of masterful thieves who are trying to get into a seemingly unbreakable vault containing vast amounts of money. The vault is guarded by the world’s most powerful corporate security team.

Giancarlo Esposito as Leo Pap, the Leader, the Mastermind. Leo is whip-smart, intense and driven, with an engineer's mind and a meticulous eye for detail. He became a thief at a young age -- and though he had a chance to get out, he couldn't stay away from the criminal life and his relapse cost him his family and his freedom.


Paz Vega as Ava Mercer, an attorney by day, Weapons specialist at night, she is equally at home on a gun range or gallery show as she is in the courtroom. Although she plays things fast and loose, deep down she’s a passionate soul who will do anything to protect the few people close to her.

Rosaline Elbay as Judy Goodwin, the crew's demolitions specialist, Judy is headstrong and independent -- an eccentric spitfire with a sarcastic edge who is clever and talented enough to stay a step ahead of her mistakes.


Jai Courtney as Bob Goodwin, a chest-puffing alpha male with a knack for safecracking and pushing people’s buttons, Bob is attractive enough to be a threat and smart enough to be dangerous to anyone who gets in his way when he’s on the hunt.

Peter Mark Kendall as Stan Loomis, a small-time smuggler with a big-time passion for life's epicurean pleasures, Stan's got a mouth that never stops running and the heart of a hopeless romantic. Loyal to a fault, he's willing to risk it all for the object of his desire - even if it means giving up the comfortable life he's built for himself.

Jordan Mendoza as RJ Acosta Jr., shaggy and technical-minded, RJ is a self-taught engineer, a brilliant mechanic and car customizer, and a driver extraordinaire. What he excels in tech know-how, he lacks in common sense and people skills, but his loyalty to Leo knows no bounds. When he's invited to join the crew, he jumps at the chance to prove his worth.


Rufus Sewell as Roger Salas, a former thief who has reinvented himself as a top tier security expert, Roger is a salesman with an uncanny ability to manipulate people to his ends. Loyal, to a point, but his own ambitions and needs will win out every time.


Tati Gabrielle as Hannah Kim, intelligent, ambitious, and adaptable. Hannah is a woman who wears many hats — and is driven by far more than money. As a chameleon who flows between the world of high-stakes finance and low-lying crime, she will have to use everything in her bag of tricks to find a way up and out.

Soojeong Son as Liz Kim, Hannah’s younger sister, a free spirit and aspiring DJ/immersive dance captain. She's a source of joy to Hannah, but her laissez-faire attitude conflicts with Hannah's deep work ethic. Together, they'll have to find a way to support each other and work hand-in-hand if they want to come out on top.

Hemky Madera as Carlos Sujo, Roger Salas’ right-hand man and head of security - not just for the company, but for Roger himself. Loyal and intense, Carlos is the one who Roger turns to when he needs something handled off-book. Very few people really understand what Carlos does for Roger, but they all know it's best to leave him a wide berth and not get in his way.

Niousha Noor as FBI Agent Nazan Abassi, driven, damaged and tenacious to a fault, she is the raging fire that threatens to burn the crew of thieves down — as long as those flames don’t consume her first.

Bubba Weiler as Special Agent Samuel Toby, a boy scout in the FBI, the kind of guy who'd take a strawberry milkshake over a vodka on the rocks. He's got a sharp mind, and an immense admiration for fellow Agent Nazan Abbasi that seeps over from professional to personal. He’s attracted to her intelligence and skill in the field and devotedly aids her as she attempts to track down the crew. But when he realizes Nazan is way too deep into her obsession, he'll have to choose whether his priorities lie in being on the right side of his career, or the right side of justice.
