CRACKLE ANNOUNCES NEW ORIGINAL DRAMA SERIES, ‘SNATCH,’ BASED ON THE WORLD OF THE POPULAR GUY RITCHIE MOVIE OF THE SAME NAME.
New 10-episode, one-hour drama series based on the world of the wildly popular Guy Ritchie movie, SNATCH. Much like the television series, ‘Fargo,’ Crackle will carry the spirit of the setting in the original feature film, while creating a new world born from the original movie. Informed by a real life gold bullion heist in London, the show centers on a group of twenty-something, up and coming hustlers who stumble upon a truck load of stolen gold bullion and are suddenly thrust into the high-stakes world of organized crime. The boys must quickly learn to navigate the treacherous waters of London’s underworld as rogue cops, gypsy fighters, international mobsters and local villains descend.
Along with StartUp, starring Martin Freeman and Adam Brody, Snatch is on of two new original programs Crackle addressed at its Upfront presentation. The free, ad-supported streamer also announced the returns of original programs The Art of More, Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, and the animated SuperMansion TV series, starring Bryan Cranston.
