What is the Netflix series ‘Kaleidoscope’ about?

The Netflix series Kaleidoscope is an eight-episode heist anthology series that follows a crew of masterful thieves over the span of 25 years. Like most heists, the group’s goal is simple — unlock a seemingly unbreakable vault and make it out with their riches.

“It’s loosely based on something that might have happened,” creator Eric Garcia told Tudum. “After Hurricane Sandy, $70 billion worth of bonds got flooded in the basement of the DTCC, which is a large clearing effort that’s owned by a bunch of the big banks. To my mind, I was like, ‘Well, that’s a perfect coverup for a heist!’”
