Crackle Renews 'Snatch' and 'SuperMansion'; Orders New Drama 'The Oath'

During its upfront presentation today, Crackle made a number of key programming announcements - including renewals for Snatch and SuperMansion, a premiere date for Season 2 of StartUp and a series order for new drama The Oath.

The Oath centers on a gang made up of those sworn to protect and defend that started out with the right intentions but its members are forced to turn on each other after being picked off by the FBI.

Joe Halpin created the drama. He executive produces with Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, Todd Hoffman and Dennis Kim. Storied Media Group and G-Unit Film & Television produce.

"This is the kind of unexpected storytelling that our viewers have come to expect and we look forward to breaking new ground with this new original drama," said Eric Berger, General Manager, Crackle.

Snatch has been renewed for a second season, which will debut on the streaming service in 2018. Additionally, the series will release an exclusive virtual reality bonus experience on PlayStation VR this summer.

The drama centers on a group of 20-something, up-and-coming hustlers who stumble upon a truck load of stolen gold bullion and are suddenly thrust into the high-stakes world of organized crime.

The cast includes Rupert Grint, Ed Westwick, Luke Pasqualino, Lucien Laviscount, Dougray Scott, Phoebe Dynevor, Juliet Aubrey, Stephanie Leonidas and Marc Warren.

Alex De Rakoff developed the series based loosely on the Guy Ritchie film of the same name. Little Island Productions produces.

"Rupert, Luke and the rest of the cast have created memorable characters who truly resonated with our viewers, and we look forward to following their adventures in Season 2 of Snatch," said Berger.

SuperMansion has been renewed for a third season, which will debut in 2018. The comedy will also produce two all-new specials, debuting this fall and early next year.

The stop-motion animated comedy follows the adventures of Titanium Rex as he struggles to live with and fight alongside the Millennial-aged, often lackadaisical members of The League of Freedom.

The voice cast includes Bryan Cranston, Keegan-Michael Key, Chris Pine, Jillian Bell, Yvette Nicole Brown, Heidi Gardner, Tucker Gilmore and Zeb Wells.

Matthew Senreich and Zeb Wells created the series. They executive produce with Cranston, James Degus, Seth Green, John Harvatine IV and Eric Towner. Stoopid Buddy Stoodios and Moon Shot Entertainment produce.

"SuperMansion has delivered for Crackle on very metric. Critics love it, fans pine for it and the list of talent who want to appear in this series just goes on and on," added Berger.

The second season of StartUp will debut on the streamer on Thursday, September 28.

The series explores what happens when a brilliant, yet controversial tech idea gets incubated on the wrong side of the tracks by three strangers who don't necessarily fit the mold of "tech entrepreneurs."

The drama stars Adam Brody, Martin Freeman, Edi Gathegi, Otmara Marrero, Addison Timlin and Ron Perlman.

Ben Ketai created the drama. He executive produces with Tom Forman, Andrew Marcus, Ray Ricord, Gianni Nunnari, Shannon Gaulding and Anne Clements. Critical Content and Hollywood Gang Productions produce.
