EXCLUSIVE: Tony winner Ali Stroker (Oklahoma!), Karen Robinson (Schitt’s Creek) and Rosanny Zayas (The L Word: Generation Q) are set as series regulars opposite Michelle Monaghan, Matt Bomer and Daniel Sunjata in Echoes, Netflix’s psychological thriller limited series from 13 Reasons Why showrunner Brian Yorkey.

Stroker will play Claudia, the sister who can’t quite penetrate the mysterious community formed by the twins. After a tragic moment that left her in a wheelchair, Claudia has risen to become the caretaker of the family home, but when her sister Leni goes missing, the future of that household is in jeopardy.
Robinson will portray Sheriff Louise Floss, the longtime public servant of Mt. Echo. She’s seen it all. That is, until the moment Leni goes missing. Sheriff Floss’ unflappable demeanor will be challenged in every way by the events set in motion by the twins.
Zayas is Deputy Paula Martinez. She has enjoyed her first year working in the sleepy town of Mt. Echo where the crimes are as mild as the weather. But when her new friend Leni disappears, the true character of Mt. Echo reveals itself—and she finds herself caught in the middle.
