Crackle’s new original series, “The Art of More” is set in the world of priceless art and shady dealers, which according to star Cary Elwes, is what makes the show so interesting.
“It’s fun, because it involves greed,” the actor says in the latest episode of TheWrap’s Drinking With the Stars. “Any business that involves the transaction of millions of dollars in a fraction of a second, you’re going to come across people who, let’s put it this way, have some shady dealings.”
“The Art of More,” which also stars Dennis Quaid and Kate Bostworth, marks the network’s first attempt to break into the premium drama space that’s previously been dominated by networks like Netflix, HBO and Showtime. What sets Crackle apart, Elwes said, is that it’s freely available to anyone with an internet connection.
“It’s a brand new network, it’s a streaming network,” he said. “They came out of the gate really running, with this incredible show that just attracted an enormous amount of talent to it.”
Elwes, for his part, said he was attracted to the series by its interesting characters and strong writing. “I don’t think there’s anything like it on television,” he boasted.
