Sony Crackle to Release Original Drama Series ‘Sequestered’ in Two Batches

Sony Crackle Release Original Drama Series

Crackle, the online network of Sony Pictures Television, announced that the first six episodes of original drama series “Sequestered” will debut Aug. 5, holding the back half of the series until October.

The 12-episode series follows a jury sequestered in a hotel while deliberating a high-profile kidnapping-murder case. “Sequestered” stars Jesse Bradford (“Bring It On”), Summer Glau (“Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”) and Patrick Warburton (“Rules of Engagement,” “Seinfeld”).

Series is directed by Shawn Ku (“Beautiful Boy”) and Kevin Tancharoen (“Fame,” “Motral Kombat: Legacy”) and was created by Aaron Tracy. “Sequestered” is produced by Lifeboat Prods.

After the first half of the episodes bow Aug. 5, Crackle will roll out the last six Oct. 14. The gap is designed to get viewers hooked on the show — so they’ll be primed to binge on the series’ denouement.

In the show, which Crackle announced this spring, Bradford plays Danny Firmin, a young attorney who uncovers a conspiracy in his case defending the alleged murderer of Gov. Mark Bennett’s (Warburton) 8-year-old son. Sequestered juror Anna (Glau) is forced to choose between her convictions and the safety of her family, as she deliberates the fate of a potentially innocent man.

Crackle, available in 21 countries, focuses on action, comedy, crime, horror and sci-fi programming. The service’s original series include Emmy-nominated “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” from Jerry Seinfeld — Crackle’s most popular series — as well as thriller “Chosen,” starring Chad Michael Murray and Rose McGowan, and “Cleaners,” starring David Arquette and Gina Gershon.
