Crackle revealed premiere dates for a number of its new and returning series Wednesday at the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour, including Jerry Seinfeld‘s “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” “Sports Jeopardy!” and Bryan Cranston‘s stop-motion “Supermansion.”
The Sony streaming company also dropped the trailer for its first one-hour drama series, “The Art of More,” starring Dennis Quaid, Christian Cooke, Kate Bosworth and Cary Elwes. That video can be seen above; the newly unveiled debut date is below.
Crackle also shared added features to its new “Always On” design during the Beverly Hilton media event. “Always On” aims to create a seamless streaming experience, more closely mirroring programmed linear TV viewing, per the company. The platform is currently available on Roku and will be launching on other platforms this fall.
“At Crackle, we made a commitment to deliver quality, breakthrough original programs,” said Eric Berger, executive vice president of Sony Pictures Television Digital Networks and general manager, Crackle. “This year, we’re really upping our game, delivering compelling programs that will differentiate us in the growing streaming marketplace and building an innovative, yet familiar viewing experience that complements our originals and library content.”
Here are premiere dates for Crackle’s new and returning original programming; descriptions are in the streaming company’s own words.
