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.
