The Sony-owned streaming video site Crackle may not have the profile of Netflix or Hulu, but its been investing in original series of its own as well, among them the Jerry Seinfeld-hosted “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” and the contract killer series “Cleaners,” starring Emmanuelle Chriqui and Gina Gershon. But it’s original thriller “Chosen” that’s been Crackle’s most-watched original series, a thriller created by Ben Ketai (director of “30 Days of Night” sequel “Dark Days”) and Ryan Lewis (producer of “Fat Kid Rules the World”) that stars Milo Ventimiglia as Ian Mitchell, a defense lawyer who finds a box with a gun and a photo of a stranger inside it, and gets pulled into a secretly, deadly game. The six-episode first season premiered in full on January 17, each episode a TV-ready 22 or so minutes long.
Crackle is bringing back “Chosen” for a second season of six half-hour episodes on December 12th, with Ventimiglia being joined by fellow teen drama alum Chad Michael Murray, as well as Sarah Roemer and Brandon Routh (yes, of “Superman Returns”). The new season will go deeper into the game in which Mitchell and his family were caught up, and as with last time, all the episodes will premiere at the same time. Check out the trailer below.
