When it comes to genre-bending experiences, Crackle has a loaded bag. The streaming service is already home to one of the best-reviewed live-action show of all time, Marvel’s Daredevil. And with The Oath and The Oath: Los Angeles, Crackle just got a pair of steampunk-inspired action thrillers that feel tailor-made for Valentine’s Day 2018.
“We wanted something that was very different from the shows that we’ve done in the past, so I think that’s why we had the idea of Crackle,” said Peter Levin, President and Chief Content Officer of Sony Pictures Television, who is heading the project. “You need to show everyone at Sony something that’s different and unique. We’re always looking to push the envelope and take audiences to places that they’ve never been before.”
With the three first-person shooter series and the new Stan Lee Animation Studio, the streaming service has a ton of new shows and movies coming to TV soon.
“We take pride in our artistic creation,” Levin added. “And our pride is knowing that we can create original content that our viewers would not experience anywhere else.”
