Culver City, Cali. (July 11, 2014) - Crackle announced today that their brand new original series "Sequestered" will make its world television debut on Tuesday, August 5th. A sophisticated, intense thriller starring Jesse Bradford (BRING IT ON), Summer Glau ("Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles") and Patrick Warburton ("Rules of Engagement"), the series follows a jury sequestered in a hotel while deliberating a high-profile kidnapping-murder case with massive implications.
Danny Firmin (Bradford), a young attorney with a promising career, begins to uncover a major conspiracy behind his big case defending the alleged murderer of Governor Mark Bennett's (Warburton) 8-year-old son. Sequestered juror Anna (Glau) is forced to choose between her beliefs and the safety of her family while deliberating the fate of a potentially innocent man. Surprising alliances form, tensions spark, and morals are tested as Anna and David put their life on the line to expose the conspiracy and find true justice for all involved.
Directed by Shawn Ku (BEAUTIFUL BOY) and Kevin Tancharoen (FAME, MORTAL KOMBAT: LEGACY), the 12-episode series will be available exclusively on Crackle and all Crackle platforms.
