FIRST LOOK TEASER TRAILER RELEASED FOR NEW ORIGINAL SCRIPTED DRAMA SERIES, ‘STARTUP,’ TO DEBUT THIS FALL STARRING MARTIN FREEMAN, ADAM BRODY, EDI GATHEGI AND OTMARA MARRERO; NEW CASTMEMBERS ANNOUNCED TODAY INCLUDE WAYNE KNIGHT (‘SEINFELD’) AND AARON YOO (21, ‘THE BLACKLIST’)
The 10-episode, one-hour original drama series explores what happens when a brilliant, yet controversial tech idea gets incubated on the wrong side of the tracks by three strangers who don’t necessarily fit the mold of “tech entrepreneurs.” Set amongst the unconstrained, yet opportunist streets of Miami, “StartUp” weaves a complex and exciting narrative, featuring the high-stakes struggle of what one will do to reach ultimate success. Forced to fund a tech company with dirty money from unsuspecting places while forming ties with a dangerous, Haitian gang, the fight to build a business pales in comparison to the fight to stay alive, especially when there’s a vehement FBI agent who wields the power to make or break those he comes in contact with—and not always for the right reasons. Additional cast announced today include Wayne Knight (“Seinfeld”) who plays Benedict Blush, a wildly successful entrepreneur with blue collar sensibilities; and Aaron Yoo (21, “Blacklist”) who plays Alex Bell, a premiere tech venture capitalist that everyone wants in their corner.
“StartUp” is produced by Critical Content and Hollywood Gang Productions. Tom Forman, Andrew Marcus, Ray Ricord, Gianni Nunnari and Shannon Gaulding all serve as executive producers. The series is written by Ben Ketai (“Chosen,” THE FOREST) who also serves as executive producer and director. Adam Brody and Anne Clements (“Cleaners”) serve as producers.
Along with Snatch based on the Guy Ritchie feature film of the same name, StartUp 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 SuperMansion, starring Bryan Cranston.
