Netflix said that the story "is told through a unique streaming experience, where viewers will enter the crime at different moments in time".
The series is in-part inspired by real-life events, as the show’s creator Eric Garcia explained.

He said: “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!’”
Garcia went on to say: “Being able to move around and watch different orders gives you a different viewpoint on the characters. There are questions that are going to be asked in one episode that are answered in another episode.
“Similarly, there'll be answers in an episode that you're watching that you don't even know are answers to something until you see the question when you watch another episode.”
It’s the latest series to experiment with structure to arrive on Netflix after Black Mirror special Bandersnatch invited viewers to choose their own adventure and plan their own way through the story through a series of interactive narratives in 2018.
Kaleidoscope is set to arrive on Netflix on January 1.
