CULVER CITY, Calif. (October 25, 2016) – Crackle, Sony’s free streaming service, today released the key art and trailer for the second season of the network’s critically acclaimed scripted drama, “The Art of More,” which premieres Wednesday, November 16. Returning for the new season are stars Dennis Quaid (“Vegas,” “Fortitude”), who also serves as executive producer, Kate Bosworth (Still Alice), Cary Elwes (The Princess Bride) and Christian Cooke (“Magic City”).
Season one of “The Art of More,” premiered in November 2015, garnering rave reviews, and generating more than 2 million views within the first month, with more than half of those viewers being new to the network. The second season of “The Art of More” is a high-stakes journey of greed and desperation through the New York auction scene where it’s not just the art and memorabilia that comes at a high price. Our characters’ attempts to achieve power, revenge and greater levels of success only create complexities that will find them becoming more like the frauds and forgeries that they are attempting to sell.
For Graham Connor (Christian Cooke), that means re-starting his career in the auction business to help the FBI take down a prominent collector who secretly runs a terrorism-funding smuggling ring. Roxanna Whitman’s (Kate Bosworth) challenge is to keep a cool and sober head as she makes her ultimate play for the top spot at DeGraaf’s. Sam Brukner (Dennis Quaid) can easily summon his signature swagger to plot his social comeback with his own museum, but he finds himself in uncharted emotional waters when two strong-willed women come into his life. With the IRS in relentless pursuit, Arthur Davenport (Cary Elwes) is desperate to reclaim his lifestyle as a New York socialite and art world tastemaker but has no idea where to start. As our characters chase what they’re after – success, power, money, status, love, absolution – they discover that past sins rarely stay buried, bad habits die hard and enemies should never be underestimated.
Joining the cast for season two are Merritt Patterson as Olivia Brukner, who comes to New York looking to reconnect with her father, but is harboring secrets of her own, and Sandrine Holt as art curator Isabel Perry, whose sophisticated and fiery personality both intrigues and challenges Brukner.
“The Art of More” was 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) and Tamara Chestna (Revenge Wedding) also serve as executive producers, with Gary Fleder (Runaway Jury, “The Shield”) and Mandy Safavi (Enders Gam, Transformers:Prime) serving as consulting producers. Brendan Kelly (“Weeds”) joins season two as executive producer and writer.
