Mystery Thriller Limited Series ECHOES Ordered at Netflix From Creator of 13 REASONS WHY.
The mystery thriller limited series Echoes has been picked up at Netflix from 13 Reasons Why writer/executive producer/showrunner Brian Yorkey, who will serve as executive producer and co-showrunner on the psychological thriller as part of a multi-year overall deal with the streamer for series and other projects.
Deadline reports, “Echoes is a mystery thriller about two identical twins, Leni and Gina, who share a dangerous secret. Since they were children, Leni and Gina have secretly swapped lives, culminating in a double life as adults: they share two homes, two husbands, and a child but everything in their perfectly choreographed world is thrown into disarray when one of the sisters goes missing.”
There is currently a search for an actress to play the two central roles. The series has received a seven-episode order, and was created and written by Australian writer-producer Vanessa Gazy (Eden) who also will executive produce, with Quinton Peeples (Runaways) serving as executive producer/co-showrunner alongside Yorkey. The series also hails from executive producers Imogen Banks (The Beautiful Lie) and Endemol Shine Banks Australia.
