CULVER CITY, Calif. (March 25, 2013) - Crackle, the multi-platform entertainment network, today announced that it has greenlit a second season of its hit original series, the thriller "Chosen."

Packed with non-stop action and shocking plot twists all six, half-hour episodes of "Chosen" launched on Crackle and across all Crackle applications on January 17, 2013, and will remain available through mid-May 2013.

The first season, executive produced by Milo Ventimiglia and series creators Ben Ketai (30 DAYS OF NIGHT: DARK DAYS) and Ryan Lewis (HIGH SCHOOL, FAT KID RULES THE WORLD), stars Ventimiglia as a husband, father and lawyer who awakens one morning to discover a mysterious box on his doorstep containing a loaded gun and a photo of a stranger he is instructed to kill within the next three days. Ketai also wrote and directed the series.

"Whether it was online, on mobile or through a connected TV device, our audience spent a significant amount of time with the show, following it through to its conclusion.
