Jake Robinson on NBC's Ambitious Drama 'American Odyssey'

Check out this brand new interview with Jake Robinson on his highly-anticipated new show American Odyssey.

The 24-year-old actor, who quickly became a fan favorite on the short-lived CW series The Carrie Diaries, stars as political activist Harrison Walters in the new NBC drama.

The show follows three stories – Jake‘s Harrison, a female Special Forces soldier (Anna Friel), and a disillusioned corporate lawyer (Peter Facinelli) – as their lives unexpectedly collide amid a massive military-industrial-complex conspiracy that proves a major U.S. corporation is funding the jihadists.

We caught up with Jake to chat about how he got the role, his experience filming on location in New York City, and more.

American Odyssey airs Sunday, April 5 @ 10PM on NBC! And be sure to follow Jake on Twitter to get more scoop on the show ahead of its premiere!

JustJared.com: My first thought after watching the pilot was that it didn’t seem like your typical network show. Were you surprised that NBC had a script like this and wanted to take this on?

Jake Robinson: Yeah, you know Robert Greenblatt comes from Showtime and I feel like he is always trying to break the mold of what network is. And I think networks are constantly having to adapt and change because of different platforms and how people are viewing content. I was definitely impressed by his risk-taking. But also at the same time, I was like yeah, I think this is kind of where most networks need to head in order to compete.
