CRACKLE ACQUIRES ORIGINAL MOVIE, 'FEDERAL OFFENSE,' FROM BOUNDLESS PICTURES

Legendary Actor & Comedian, Chevy Chase to Star in Comedy

Culver City, Calif. (November 2, 2017) - Crackle, Sony Pictures Television Networks' free, ad supported streaming network, today announced that the network acquired rights to Federal Offense, a comedy from Boundless Pictures. The award-winning actor and comedian, Chevy Chase (National Lampoon's Vacation franchise) is set to star as a foul-mouthed grandfather who is broken out of his nursing home. Courtney Lauren Penn and Brandon Burrows of Boundless Pictures will produce the feature.

Chase most recently completed filming on The Last Laugh with Richard Dreyfuss. In recent years, he co-starred on NBC's cult comedy "Community," New Line's Vacation reboot, as well as Hot Tub Time Machine 2.

Written by newcomer Connor Martin, Federal Offense is a raunchy screwball comedy that centers on three best friends in their 20s who lose a drug kingpin's stash before finding themselves on the lam from gangsters, bounty hunters and the law after breaking their grandfather out of his nursing home.

"We're beyond excited to collaborate with Crackle on this movie," said Courtney Lauren Penn, Boundless Pictures founder and producer. "Crackle has their finger on the pulse for an audience that we produce for and we couldn't be more thrilled to partner with such a great team."

"From the very first moment we read the script, we knew Crackle was the right home for this project," comments John Orlando, SVP, Programming and Development, Crackle. "Boundless Pictures and Connor Martin are the right team to create a hilarious and fresh comedy that our viewers have come to expect. Not to mention that Chevy is the icing on the cake!"

Chase and Martin are represented by LINK Entertainment and APA.
