CRACKLE CELEBRATES SECOND SEASON OF "THE ART OF MORE" BY PARTNERING WITH BIDDING FOR GOOD TO AUCTION COMMISSIONED PIECES TO BENEFIT MOVEMBER FOUNDATION

UP-AND-COMING ARTISTS CREATE PIECES INSPIRED BY ICONIC WORKS - INCLUDING 'THE SCREAM' AND THE 'MONA LISA' - FOR CHARITY AUCTION LAUNCHING NOVEMBER 1ST WITH BIDDINGFORGOOD.COM

Culver City, CA, November 1, 2016 - In anticipation of the November 16th launch of the second season of Crackle's critically-acclaimed, scripted original, "The Art of More," the network has commissioned 10 original works from up-and-coming artists that will be auctioned off through BiddingForGood.com, the e-commerce charitable site. Bidding on the pieces, all inspired by well-known and iconic works of art, runs from November 1st through Wednesday, November 16th, timed to the season two debut of the Crackle series. All proceeds from the auction will be donated to the Movember Foundation, the leading global men's health organization, which raises both funds and awareness for prostate cancer, testicular cancer and overall men's physical and mental health.

Series stars Dennis Quaid, Kate Bosworth, Cary Elwes and Christian Cooke, will participate in the campaign with original PSAs encouraging fans to support the work of the selected artists and the not-for-profit organization, which encourages men to grow moustaches and MOVE throughout November in an effort to "change the face" of men's health. All 10 original pieces, which were created by members of the Poster Posse, a platform where a global network of diverse artists can showcase their original works to a broader audience, will be on display at the New York premiere event which will be attended by the series cast and notables from the art community. The pieces are:

· "The Big Scream" -By Mike Mahle (Morton, IL)- inspired by "The Scream" by Edvard Munch, 1893

· "La Preciosa" -By Orlando Arocena (Bronx, NY)- inspired by The Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci, 1504

· "The Three White Dukes" -By Matt Needle (Cardiff, Wales)- inspired by The Three Musicians by Pablo Picasso, 1921

· "Luncheon of the Molting Party" -By Berkay Daglar (Istanbul, Turkey)- inspired by "Luncheon of the Boating Party" by Renoir, 1881

· "One Last Game" -By Salvador Anguiano (Leon, Guanajuato, Mexico)- inspired by "The Card Players" by Paul Cezanne, 1895

· "Harvest Moon" -By Daniel Nash (Bedfordshire, England)- inspired by "The Starry Night" by Vincent Van Gogh, 1889

· "Triple Abduction" -By Maria Suarez-Inclan (London, England)- inspired by "The Three Dancers in Exercise Hall" by Degas, 1880

· "The Philosopher's Throne" -By John Aslarona (Queens, NY)- inspired by "The Thinker" by Rodin, 1902

· "Girl with the Ceramic Earring" -By Tracie Ching (Washington, D.C.)- inspired by "Girl with the Pearl Earring" by Vermeer, 1665

· "Venus di Moderno" -By Robert Bruno (Brooklyn, NY)- inspired by "Venus de Milo" by Alexandros of Antioch, 101BC

Top bidders for each of the 10 pieces will also receive an auction paddle signed by "The Art of More" cast. Bidding for Good auction will be available via web at www.biddingforgood.com/theartofmore and mobile (https://bforg.com/theartofmore).

The second season of "The Art of More" is a high-stakes journey of greed and desperation through the New York auction scene where it's not just the art and memorabilia that comes at a high price. Our characters' attempts to achieve power, revenge and greater levels of success only create complexities that will find them becoming more like the frauds and forgeries that they are attempting to sell.

For Graham Connor (Christian Cooke), that means re-starting his career in the auction business to help the FBI take down a prominent collector who secretly runs a terrorism-funding smuggling ring. Roxanna Whitman's (Kate Bosworth) challenge is to keep a cool and sober head as she makes her ultimate play for the top spot at DeGraaf's. Sam Brukner (Dennis Quaid) can easily summon his signature swagger to plot his social comeback with his own museum, but he finds himself in uncharted emotional waters when two strong-willed women come into his life. With the IRS in relentless pursuit, Arthur Davenport (Cary Elwes) is desperate to reclaim his lifestyle as a New York socialite and art world tastemaker but has no idea where to start. As our characters chase what they're after - success, power, money, status, love, absolution - they discover that past sins rarely stay buried, bad habits die hard and enemies should never be underestimated. Joining the cast for season two are Merritt Patterson as Olivia Brukner, who comes to New York looking to reconnect with her father, but is harboring secrets of her own, and Sandrine Holt as art curator Isabel Perry, whose sophisticated and fiery personality both intrigues and challenges Brukner.

"The Art of More" was 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) and Tamara Chestna (Revenge Wedding) also serve as executive producers, with Gary Fleder (Runaway Jury, "The Shield") and Mandy Safavi (Enders Gam, Transformers:Prime) serving as consulting producers. Brendan Kelly ("Weeds") joins season two as executive producer and writer.
