Crackle Plus, a Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment company and one of the largest operators of streaming advertising-supported video-on-demand (AVOD) networks, May 28 announced the upcoming content releases planned for June, which include the second season of Ashton Kutcher-produced “Going From Broke.”
The Webby Award-winning unscripted series focused on empowering people to overcome their crippling financial struggles. People are graduating from college with mounds of student and other debt and a shrinking pool of employment opportunities at their disposal. What makes matters worse is they lack the basic financial literacy to get themselves out of trouble, according to the series. Series host Dan Rosensweig, CEO of Chegg, and financial expert Tonya Rapley work with young people to become the CEO of their own lives and finances.
Other originals include:
- “Promiseland” follows NBA rookie Ja Morant as he navigates the perils of the 2019–20 season — not just a challenging year for live basketball, but for humanity. Apart from the suspension of his sport due to the pandemic, the young point guard must grapple with a world utterly transformed by calls for racial justice. Guest stars include Carmelo Anthony, A’ja Wilson and more. Part Two drops June 17.
- “C.O.G” features Hamilton star Jonathan Groff as young college dropout determined to suppress his homosexuality, who heads to Oregon, takes a job picking apples and, ultimately, finds religion.
- “One Last Thing” stars Wendell Pierce (Jack Ryan and The Wire) as Dylan Derringer, a lonely dentist in Florida who is encouraged by his dental assistant Jaime, played by Joanne Froggatt (Downton Abbey), to reunite with his long-lost daughter Lucy brought to life by Jurnee Smollett-Bell (Friday Night Lights, Underground and Birds of Prey) after years apart, sending him on an eventful and ultimately life-changing journey of discovery.
