EXCLUSIVE: Daniel Sunjata (Power Book II: Ghost) is set as a lead opposite Michelle Monaghan and Matt Bomer in Echoes, Netflix’s psychological thriller limited series from 13 Reasons Why showrunner Brian Yorkey.
Created and written by Vanessa Gazy, Echoes is a mystery thriller about identical twins Leni and Gina, both portrayed by Monaghan, who share a dangerous secret.

Sunjata will play Gina’s husband, Charlie Davenport. The quintessential Los Angeles psychotherapist, he is empathetic, charismatic with an intellect to match. Married to Gina, he finds himself caught in the undertow of her deep connection to twin Leni. But he has a hidden dimension as well. One that will complicate both sisters’ lives.
