CULVER CITY, Calif. (May 4, 2016) – Crackle, Sony’s free streaming network, is now in production on season two of the network’s first original scripted drama series, “The Art of More.” The hour-long series, starring Dennis Quaid, Kate Bosworth, Cary Elwes and Christian Cooke, began filming its 10-episode sophomore season in Montreal this week. Returning to Crackle in Q4 2016, season two will dive deeper into the glamorous and surprisingly cutthroat world of premium auction houses in New York City with more twists and complex stories.
The first season, which premiered in November 2015, garnered critical-acclaim from outlets including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Deadline and Entertainment Weekly. Harper’s Bazaar called it, the “#1 Best New Fall TV Show.” In its debut month, “The Art of More” generated more than 2 million views with more than half of those viewers being new to the network.
The series follows former soldier Graham Connor (Christian Cooke) who shakes off his blue collar, Brooklyn roots and gains access to an elite society through his connections with a smuggling ring he encountered during his tour in Iraq. Dennis Quaid, also an executive producer, stars as charismatic real estate shark Samuel Brukner, a Machiavellian master of money and power who is one part charm and one part intimidation. He is the life of the party but when it comes to his money, he can be both ruthless and corrupt. Cary Elwes is Arthur Davenport, a shrewd and eccentric world-class collector of art and illegal antiquities who mentors Connor (Cooke). Kate Bosworth portrays Roxanna Whitman, daughter of the CEO of one of the two warring auction houses. Although she was born into this exclusive world and thrives in it, she is riddled with insecurities that drive her to be a formidable executive in her own right.
“The Art of More” starring Dennis Quaid, Kate Bosworth, Cary Elwes and Christian Cooke is created by Chuck Rose, who with Gardner Stern (“NYPD Blue,” “Law and Order”), is writer and executive producer. Dennis Quaid, Laurence Mark (JERRY MAGUIRE, DREAMGIRLS), Gary Fleder (RUNAWAY JURY, “The Shield”) and Tamara Chestna, also serve as executive producers. Brendan Kelly (“Weeds”) joins season two as executive producer and writer.
“The Art of More” Season 2 builds on Crackle’s growing slate of original premium content, which includes the stop-motion animated comedy series “SuperMansion,” with Bryan Cranston, Seth Green, Keegan Michael-Key and Jillian Bell; Crackle’s weekly live game show series “Sports Jeopardy!” with Emmy® award-winning sportscaster Dan Patrick; its flagship award-winning series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” with Jerry Seinfeld (new season premieres June 15); the highly-anticipated upcoming drama series “StartUp” with Martin Freeman, Adam Brody, Edi Gathegi and Otmara Marrero (premiering Fall 2016); and the new drama series “Snatch,” based on the world of the popular Guy Ritchie movie of the same name. Crackle original movies include JOE DIRT 2: BEAUTIFUL LOSER, the first ever digital sequel to a major motion picture, starring David Spade and DEAD RISING: WATCHTOWER and its sequel DEAD RISING: ENDGAME starring Jesse Metcalfe and Dennis Haysbert (premiering June 20).”
