Sony’s Crackle is premiering legal thriller Sequestered on the streaming service Aug. 5.
The 12-episode series from directors Shawn Ku (Beautiful Boy) and Kevin Tancharoen (Fame) will be split into two batches. The first half of the series will be made available all at once in August. The second half will premiere on Oct. 14.
Sequestered, produced by Lifeboat Productions and created by Aaron Tracy, follows a jury that has been sequestered in a hotel during deliberations on a high-profile kidnapping-murder case. Jesse Bradford stars as Danny Firmin, a young attorney with a promising career, who uncovers a conspiracy in the case against Governor Mark Bennett (Patrick Warburton), who allegedly murdered his 8-year-old son. Summer Glau plays a juror forced to choose between the safety of her family and the fate of a potentially innocent man.
The series is one of several announced at the Digital Content NewFronts in New York in April. The service’s most popular series is Jerry Seinfeld‘s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. Other projects expected to hit the platform later this year include Bryan Cranston-produced comedy series Tightrope and Sports Jeopardy! with host Dan Patrick.
