Netflix’s Kaleidoscope: Where Was the TV Show Filmed?

Created by Eric Garcia, Netflix’s ‘Kaleidoscope’ (originally titled ‘Jigsaw’) is a crime drama series that revolves around a mastermind thief named Leo Pap and his crew, who have collectively robbed several high-security places successfully. With enough success under their belts, their ambitions soar high, and they decide to plot the biggest heist of their life, worth $7 billion, from a place with the tightest security in all of America and probably the world. However, even Leo’s cleverest of plans can turn sideways when there is betrayal and greed within his camp.

Apart from the action-packed sequences, what makes this show even more intriguing is that it is a non-linear series, leading to the finale no matter what order the viewers choose to watch it. Now, couple all that with the stellar onscreen performances from a talented ensemble comprising Giancarlo Esposito, Rufus Sewell, Paz Vega, and Tati Gabrielle, enhancing the series’ quality further. Meanwhile, the exciting locations in the backdrop of various intense action scenes make you wonder where ‘Kaleidoscope’ is shot. In that case, allow us to fill you in on all the details!
