Streaming service Crackle has ordered ten episodes of the drama series “Start Up” which stars Adam Brody, Martin Freeman, Edi Gathegi and newcomer Otmara Marrero.
Ben Ketai created the Miami-set series which follows a brilliant, yet controversial tech startup idea incubated by three strangers forced to fund it with dirty money, form an alliance with a Haitian gang to keep it operating, and stave off an FBI agent (Freeman) and financial crimes specialist who holds far too much power and has questionable loyalties.
Ketai wrote the episodes and will also direct and executive produce. Brody also produces the series which Relativity Television’s freshly renamed Critical Content division will create.
Filming begins this week in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The project marks the second scripted show on the Crackle service following the Dennis Quaid-led “The Art of More” which was recently renewed.
