CULVER CITY, Calif. (December 2, 2015) - Crackle, Sony's free streaming network, today announced that "The Art of More" has been renewed for a second season less than two weeks following its November 19th premiere. The series has garnered 2 million views since debut and more than half of the viewers were new to the network. The second season will be 10, hour-long episodes and will begin shooting in early 2016.

"As our most ambitious series to date, 'The Art of More' is a brand-defining drama that speaks to Crackle's mission to be a home to must-see original content," said Eric Berger, GM of Crackle and EVP of Sony Pictures Television Digital Networks. "The successful performance of the series in such a short amount of time is a testament to the incredible team behind it who will take our audience deeper into a world where there is still much more story to tell."

"I loved playing Samuel Brukner and couldn't be happier to be joining the cast and crew of 'The Art of More' for another season," said Dennis Quaid. "I'm so thankful to all the viewers who have come over to Crackle and embraced the show - next season is going to be even more ruthless."

"This story is only just beginning and I can't wait to dive back into this world and work again with such a wonderful company of people," said Christian Cooke.

"The Art of More" garnered praise from critics with the New York Times boasting that "the casting is delicious, the characters and their stories grow more complex with each episode." The Wall Street Journal said that "seeing the bad karma pile on is what makes 'The Art of More' difficult to stop watching," Deadline Hollywood noted that "the first hour-long drama series from Crackle is, well worth bidding on" and Harper's Bazaar called it the "#1 Best New Fall TV Show." Other raves came from Entertainment Weekly which said that "the best part is reveling in the evildoings of the one percent" and The A.V. Club noted that the series "does a captivating job of offering access to this secretive, exclusive, and corrupt world."

Led by an all-star cast including Dennis Quaid, Kate Bosworth, Cary Elwes and Christian Cooke, the critically-acclaimed original, Crackle's first one-hour scripted drama, delves deep into the cutthroat world of premium auction houses and pulls back the curtain on the dark underbelly of a multi-million dollar business filled with hustlers, smugglers, power mongers, and collectors of the beautiful and the esoteric. Whether buyer, seller or something in between, everyone in "The Art of More" is chasing something they covet and struggling with the extent they will go when unchecked by morality.

The 10-episode, hour-long series follows former soldier Graham Connor (Christian Cooke) who shakes off his blue collar, Brooklyn roots and gains access to an elite society through his connections with a smuggling ring he encountered during his tour in Iraq. Dennis Quaid, also an executive producer, stars as charismatic real estate shark Samuel Brukner, a Machiavellian master of money and power who is one part charm and one part intimidation. He is the life of the party but when it comes to his money, he can be both ruthless and corrupt. Cary Elwes is Arthur Davenport, a shrewd and eccentric world-class collector of art and illegal antiquities who mentors Connor (Cooke). Kate Bosworth portrays Roxanna Whitman, daughter of the CEO of one of the two warring auction houses. Although she was born into this exclusive world and thrives in it, she is riddled with insecurities that drive her to be a formidable executive in her own right.

The Art of More" is created by Chuck Rose, who with Gardner Stern ("NYPD Blue," "Law and Order"), is writer and executive producer. Dennis Quaid, Laurence Mark (JERRY MAGUIRE, DREAMGIRLS), Gary Fleder (RUNAWAY JURY, "The Shield") and Tamara Chestna, also serve as executive producers.

"The Art of More" builds on Crackle's growing slate of original premium content, which includes the stop-motion animated comedy series "SuperMansion," with Bryan Cranston, Seth Green, Keegan Michael-Key and Jillian Bell; Crackle's weekly live game show series "Sports Jeopardy!" with Emmy(R) award-winning sportscaster Dan Patrick and its flagship award-winning series "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" with Jerry Seinfeld. Crackle original movies include JOE DIRT 2: BEAUTIFUL LOSER, the first ever digital sequel to a major motion picture, starring David Spade, and DEAD RISING: WATCHTOWER starring Jesse Metcalfe, Virginia Madsen and Rob Riggle.
