"SNATCH," CRACKLE'S MOST-WATCHED SCRIPTED ORIGINAL DRAMA, RENEWED FOR SECOND SEASON

VIRTUAL REALITY BONUS EXPERIENCE CO-PRODUCED WITH FUTURE LIGHTHOUSE TO LAUNCH THIS SUMMER ON PLAYSTATION VR

New York, April 19, 2017 -- On the heels of its successful spring launch on Crackle, the original drama "Snatch," based loosely on the wildly popular movie of the same name, will return for a second season in 2018, it was announced today. In addition, the free, AVOD service shared plans to release an exclusive virtual reality bonus experience on PlayStation VR this summer. Both announcements were made today at the network's upfront presentation at Sony Square NYC.

"Rupert, Luke and the rest of the cast have created memorable characters who truly resonated with our viewers, and we look forward to following their adventures in season two of Snatch, " said Eric Berger, Crackle, GM and EVP, Digital, Sony Pictures Television Networks. "Sincere thanks to our production team as well as Snatch's creator, writer and executive producer Alex De Rakoff for being the creative force behind what is our most successful drama to date."

Called a "whole lot of fun... with an irreverent sense of humor," by the Boston Globe, "Snatch" is the network's most-streamed scripted original to date and centers on a group of twenty-something, up-and-coming hustlers who stumble upon a truck load of stolen gold bullion and are suddenly thrust into the high-stakes world of organized crime. The boys must quickly learn to navigate the treacherous waters of London's underworld as rogue cops, gypsy fighters, international mobsters and local villains descend.

During the VR experience, the hustlers attempt to break into the safe of Sonny Castillo (Ed Westwick) and can choose to keep cracking the safe or leave the hideout before the cops and Castillo's goons arrive on the scene.

"In VR the viewer has a lot of power and controls the outcome. Our goal is to teleport you alongside Rupert Grint and his thieving friends to make you feel the adrenaline of the heist. We want the viewers to have agency over where they want this caper to go," said Nicolas Alcala, Future Lighthouse's CEO and director of creativity.

Inspired by the cult favorite film of the same name, Crackle's "Snatch" stars Rupert Grint as the utterly posh, Charlie Cavendish-Scott. Best known as Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter film franchise, Grint also serves as an executive producer. In addition, the series stars an ensemble cast featuring Luke Pasqualino ("Skins", "The Borgias") as Albert Hill, Lucien Laviscount ("Scream Queens", "Honeytrap") as Billy Ayres, Dougray Scott ("Fear the Walking Dead," "Doctor Who") as Vic Hill, Phoebe Dynevor ("The Village," "Dickensian) as Lotti Mott and Juliet Aubrey (The Infiltrator," "Primeval") as Lily Hill. The series is executive produced by Alex De Rakoff, who also serves as writer and showrunner.
