StartUp (Crackle) -- S: Adam Brody, Ron Perlman



Crackle, Sony's streaming network, today announced the premiere date for "StartUp," the highly-anticipated scripted drama starring Martin Freeman ("Fargo," "Sherlock"), Adam Brody ("CHiPS," "The League"), Edi Gathegi ("The Blacklist," The Blacklist: Redemption) and Otmara Marrero ("Graceland"). Launching Tuesday, September 6, 2016, the 10-episode, one-hour series is set amongst the unconstrained, yet opportunist streets of Miami and weaves a complex and exciting narrative, focusing on the high-stakes struggle of what one will do to reach ultimate success. But this is not your average startup incubator story. "StartUp" is about the emergence of GenCoin, a brilliant, yet controversial tech idea centered around digital currency-an idea that gets incubated on the wrong side of the tracks by three strangers who don't necessarily fit the mold of "tech entrepreneurs" and a crooked FBI agent who will go to any length necessary to take them down. Martin Freeman ("Fargo," "Sherlock") plays FBI agent Phil Rask, specializing in financial crimes. Rask crosses paths with Nick Talman, played by Adam Brody ("CHiPS," "The League"), a sharp and intelligent financier at a boutique firm in Miami, but it's not Talman that Rask is after--it's his father. Nick has a problematic relationship with his wealthy, irresponsible father, who disappears and forces Nick to stash his ill-gotten gain - instead of going to the FBI, he decides to hide the money by investing in a tech startup pitched by the unorthodox Izzy Morales, a tech whiz out to change the world, played by Otmara Marrero ("Graceland"). Edi Gathegi ("The Blacklist," TWILIGHT) also stars in the series as Ronald Dacey - second-in-command of the local Haitian gang. When Ronald discovers that the money he left with Nick's father has vanished, Ronald moves on to the next best thing - his son. An unexpected partnership forms between Ronald, Nick and Izzy which culminates in a dangerous alliance that make them a target for Rask (Freeman), who plans to take a journey to the very pit of darkness to take down the unsuspecting trio.

re: StartUp (Crackle) -- S: Adam Brody, Ron Perlman

I posted a thread a few weeks ago asking if anyone here watches Crackle content, especially now that they are airing original shows like this and The Art of More. Seemed like the general consensus was no. So this show will probably get no audience here.

I'm interested in checking this out, but considering Crackle is ad supported, it will probably be heavy with commercials. If I have time, I'll try to see at least episode 1 and see how it goes.

The only thing I watch on Crackle is Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee which is fantastic. I'm a big Martin Freeman fan so I'll give this a shot.

I was under the impression Crackle was old content. This looks interesting. Will try to give it a look before the full tv season starts.

Crackle released the season two trailer and key art for the network's original drama series, "StartUp" returning with all 10-episodes on Thursday, September 28th.

The second season of "StartUp," picks up on the streets of Miami following the takeover of GenCoin, an unregulated global cryptocurrency. With their startup now in the hands of the Russian Mob, our unlikely trio, Izzy Morales, Ronald Dacey, and Nick Talman, reinvest in their partnership and launch an exciting new endeavor, a darknet prototype called ArakNet. But as their decentralized network begins to grow, so too does the peril, the corruption, and the moral turpitude. As our heroes attempt to stay alive long enough to triumph, the sophomore season of "StartUp" poses the all-important question, what is the cost of ambition, and reveals the frightening lengths one might go to achieve ultimate success.

I'm in again. Enjoyed the first season. Not amazing, but not too shabby either.
