SONY CRACKLE SCORES WITH SERIES OF ORIGINAL SHORTS, "ROG & DAVO'S GUIDE TO RUSSIA," DEBUTING MONDAY, JUNE 11

Original Shorts from Embassy Row Include 10 Installments on Sony's Free, Ad-Supported Streaming Network

Culver City, CA -- May 30, 2018 - Sony Crackle announced today that the free, ad-supported streaming network will launch "Rog & Davo's Guide to Russia." This series of 10 original shorts will air from June 11 to June 13, setting the table for a month-long feast of soccer in anticipation of the 2018 FIFA World Cup(R) Russia.

The shorts will be hosted by sports writer Roger Bennett and award-winning television producer Michael Davies, the witty and passionate soccer enthusiasts known for their popular series on NBCSN and podcast "Men in Blazers." Each four to six-minute installment will feature a specific country along with Roger and Michael's predictions for that team and, of course, the high-brow humor and lighthearted, fun take on soccer that fans have grown to love from them. The episodes will highlight the following countries: England, Argentina, Portugal, Iceland, France, Belgium, Brazil, Spain, Germany and Mexico.

"As America prepares to embrace an incredible summer of soccer, we couldn't be more pleased to connect Michael and Roger with our sports-minded audience," said Eric Berger, chief digital officer, Sony Pictures Television Networks and GM, Sony Crackle. "For many, they are the voices of soccer in the US and the fandom that surrounds this event makes this series the perfect addition to the Sony Crackle lineup."

"The World Cup(R) is the single event which has driven the growth of the game we love, soccer, in the country we love, the United States," said Roger Bennett of "Men in Blazers." "Americans will, en masse, cut work for a month and revel in the heroes, villains, and unspooling telenovela-esque storylines which will unfurl game to game. This series will provide instantly accessible background, both footballing and cultural, for every fan, both die-hard and newly soccer-curious, so they can savor every second of the action."

Michael Davies added: "This has been an incredible week for us - we met Don Johnson, our book came out and is now the number one selling sports encyclopedia in the western world and we're going to be on Sony Crackle. This is going to be a bonkers association football tournament, a global celebration of ill-advised haircuts, intricate neck tattoos and grown men whipping off their shirts to show off their abs. There might also be some pretty decent football played and we can't wait to preview all of it."

"Rog & Davo's Guide to Russia" is produced by Embassy Row with Roger Bennett, Michael Davies and Jen Simons serving as executive producers.
