CRACKLE GREENLIGHTS NEW SCRIPTED ORIGINAL, "THE OATH" (WT) EXECUTIVE PRODUCED BY CURTIS "50 CENT" JACKSON

EXECUTIVE PRODUCED BY JACKSON'S G-UNIT FILM & TELEVISION INC. AND STORIED MEDIA GROUP; CREATED AND WRITTEN BY FORMER LOS ANGELES COUNTY SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT (LASD) DEPUTY JOE HALPIN, NEW 10-EPISODE DRAMA EXPLORES A SECRET SOCIETY IN LAW ENFORCEMENT

FREE STREAMING NETWORK ALSO PARTNERS WITH JACKSON AND G-UNIT FILM & TELEVISION INC. ON "RPM," (WT) SCRIPTED CRIME DRAMA CURRENTLY IN DEVELOPMENT

New York, April 19, 2017 -- Today, at the Crackle upfront presentation held at Sony Square NYC, the streaming service greenlit their new scripted original drama, "The Oath," (WT) written and created by former Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputy Joe Halpin ("Hawaii Five-O," "Ice," "The Lottery"). Executive produced by Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson and his G-Unit Film & Television Inc., the series explores a different kind of subculture - gangs made up of those sworn to protect and defend.

These secret societies are nearly impossible to get into - but once inside, members will do what they must to protect each other from enemies on the outside and from within their own ranks. The drama examines this all-too-real world through a gang that started out with the right intentions. But in order to stay both out of jail and alive, they will all need to re-examine the principles that guide them and speculate as to whether they can trust the badged criminals that operate amongst them. The 10-episode, one-hour original pulls the curtain back on the inner workings of this band of brothers forced to turn on each other after being picked off by the FBI.

"I am very excited to be partnering with Sony Pictures Television Networks and Crackle. To be able to bring this story to life is something I'm looking forward to and Joe Halpin's personal experience will make this unlike anything that's been seen before," Jackson said.

"Curtis, G-Unit Film & Television Inc., Storied Media Group and Joe Halpin are the perfect team to take this extraordinarily fast paced and complex narrative to Crackle's passionate and engaged audience," noted Eric Berger, Crackle GM and EVP, Digital, Sony Pictures Television Networks. "This is the kind of unexpected storytelling that our viewers have come to expect and we look forward to breaking new ground with this new original drama."

"The Oath" is executive produced by Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson and his G-Unit Film & Television Inc., Todd Hoffman and Dennis Kim of Storied Media Group and Joe Halpin who is also creator, writer and showrunner. Halpin is represented by Andy Patman at Paradigm.

In addition to "The Oath" (WT), Crackle closed a deal with the rapper/actor/producer to develop an hour-long original, "RPM," (WT) written by Leo Sardarian. A high-octane drama set in the working class streets of Boston's most corrupt neighborhoods, "RPM" follows a used car salesman who starts moonlighting as a getaway driver for a Boston crime syndicate after financial ruin threatens his family. Executive produced by Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson and his G-Unit Film & Television Inc., "RPM" (WT) is produced by Adam Riback, Nick Phillips and Kelly Wagner. Leo Sardarian is represented by APA, Echo Lake Entertainment and Ziffren Britenham LLP.

Jackson is represented by Jim Osborne, Marc Kamler and Kyle Loftus at APA and attorneys Eric Feig and Stephen J. Savva.
