SOPHOMORE SEASON OF CRACKLE'S "STARTUP" TO DEBUT ON THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 28TH

IN SEASON TWO, GRITTY ORIGINAL DRAMA STARRING ADAM BRODY, MARTIN FREEMAN, EDI GATHEGI AND OTMARA MARRERO, ADDS ADDISON TIMLIN ('CALIFORNICATION') AND RON PERLMAN ('HELLBOY,' 'SONS OF ANARCHY') WHO WILL ALSO PRODUCE

New York, April 19, 2017 -- Currently in production in Puerto Rico, "StartUp" explores what happens when a brilliant, yet controversial tech idea gets incubated on the wrong side of the tracks by three strangers who don't necessarily fit the mold of "tech entrepreneurs."

Crackle announced at an upfront presentation today that the hour-long drama will return for a second season on September 28th and released a first look clip featuring new addition Ron Perlman (Hellboy, "Sons of Anarchy"). Perlman portrays Wes Chandler, a multi-millionaire businessman with a level-headed grit.

It was also announced today that Perlman will be taking on producer role in this new, 10-episode season. In addition, the network announced that Addison Timlin ("Californication") who will play Perlman's daughter Mara, will also be a featured player in Crackle's tech-centric original.

Set amongst the unconstrained, yet opportunist streets of Miami, "StartUp" weaves a complex and exciting narrative, featuring the high-stakes struggle of what one will do to reach ultimate success. Forced to fund a tech company with dirty money from unsuspecting places while forming ties with a dangerous, Haitian gang, the fight to build a business pales in comparison to the fight to stay alive, especially when there's a vehement FBI agent who wields the power to make or break those he comes in contact with - and not always for the right reasons.

Returning in season two are series' stars Adam Brody ("CHiPS," "The League") also prouducer, Martin Freeman ("Fargo," "Sherlock"), Edi Gathegi ("The Blacklist," "The Blacklist: Redemption") and Otmara Marrero ("Graceland").

"StartUp" is produced by Critical Content and Hollywood Gang Productions. Tom Forman, Andrew Marcus, Ray Ricord, Gianni Nunnari, Shannon Gaulding and Anne Clements ("Cleaners") all serve as executive producers. The series is created and written by Ben Ketai ("Chosen," THE FOREST) who also serves as executive producer and director. Adam Brody and Ron Perlman serve as producers.
