What happens when you stick three different families in one campsite over Fourth of July weekend? Well, Charlie Sheen begs to find out in the new, original Crackle film, Mad Families.

The movie focuses on three families -- one Hispanic, one African American and one Caucasian -- who all end up sharing the same camping ground when all of them refuse to leave. And ET has your first look at the chaos in the woods, when a colony of bats swarms the area, sending everyone -- Leah Remini, Finesse Mitchell, Juan Gabriel Pareja, Charlotte McKinney, Chanel Iman (Dope), Barry Shabaka Henley and Tiffany Haddish -- on the run.

The film, co-written and directed by Fred Wolf and executive produced by Sheen, is the latest in Crackle’s growing slate of original content, including Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser, The Art of More with Dennis Quaid and Kate Bosworth, and the return of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee hosted by Jerry Seinfeld. The season nine premiere of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee features Kristen Wiig and is now streaming online.

Mad Families is the first major project for Sheen following the revelation that he’s HIV positive. In 2015, the actor went on the Today show to disclose his status to Matt Lauer. Following Anger Management’s cancellation in 2014, the actor has appeared on ABC’s The Goldbergs, reprising his character from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Sheen is slated to appear in the independent drama Nine Eleven opposite Whoopi Goldberg and Luis Guzman.

Sheen is also working on a memoir, detailing his career and life with HIV, which ET first announced in Nov. 2015.

Meanwhile, Remini was the focus of the A&E documentary, Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, and regularly appears on Match Game with Alec Baldwin, which recently returned to ABC.

Mad Families premieres Thursday, Jan. 12 on Crackle.
