Think of Crackle’s new tech drama, StartUp, as the darker version of HBO’s Silicon Valley.
In the 10-episode series from creator Ben Ketai (Chosen), StartUp follows the sudden rise of GenCoin, a revolutionary but controversial tech idea centered on digital currency that gets developed by the wrong people; three strangers who aren’t exactly what you’d think when you hear tech entrepreneurs. From there, things start to unravel, as the Haitian gang catches wind of a potential windfall.
Led by Adam Brody, Martin Freeman and Edi Gathegi, the new extended trailer for the Sony-produced series has everything you’d expect from a heart-pounding, gripping one-hour drama. There are backdoor dealings, money issues, family conflicts, sexy hookups and epic fights.
“You got the supply. You have the demand. You have the problem. And you have the solution. You have the currency of the future,” a beaten-up Gathegi opines.
Otmara Marrero, Wayne Knight and Aaron Yoo round out the ensemble cast. To watch the 90-second trailer, watch the video above.
StartUp is available to stream Sept. 6 on Crackle.
