Milo Ventimiglia to Star In and Executive Produce New Crackle Original Series "Chosen"

Diedrich Bader, Nicky Whelan, Brett Davern and Katrina Law Also Set to Appear in Psychological Thriller

CULVER CITY, Calif., Sept. 4, 2012 -- Crackle, the multi-platform entertainment network, announced the Los Angeles-based production of its new original series "Chosen," starring Milo Ventimiglia ("Heroes"). Ventimiglia will executive produce along with creators Ben Ketai (30 DAYS OF NIGHT: DARK DAYS) and Ryan Lewis (HIGH SCHOOL, FAT KID RULES THE WORLD). Ketai also wrote and will direct the series which is slated to premiere this winter across all Crackle platforms. Additional talent attached to the action thriller include Diedrich Bader (OFFICE SPACE, NAPOLEON DYNAMITE), Nicky Whelan (HALL PASS, HALLOWEEN II), Brett Davern ("Awkward") and Katrina Law ("Spartacus: Vengeance"), among others.

"Chosen" follows Ian Mitchell (Ventimiglia), a husband, father and lawyer who awakens one morning to discover a mysterious box on his doorstep containing a loaded gun - and a photo of a stranger he is instructed to kill within the next three days. "Chosen" is comprised of six half-hour episodes, packed with non-stop action and shocking plot twists.

"Chosen" joins Crackle's acclaimed portfolio of original content that includes the long-form anthology series "The Unknown" created by Chris Collins and starring Dominic Monaghan; Jerry Seinfeld's new comedy series "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee;" and the Webby Award-winning drama "Urban Wolf."

Crackle continues to expand its brand across multiple platforms and services. In late August, the award-winning app, with over 11 million mobile downloads since its launch in the Spring of 2011, was made available on Windows Phones and Barnes & Noble's NOOK Tablet devices, and as of August 21 on Amazon's Kindle Fire. Prior successful launches include the Xbox LIVE service, Sony and other manufacturers' Android phones and tablets, the iPhone, iPad and iPod, among others.
