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.
