Crackle Wants More ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’ and ‘Cleaners’

Rose McGowan Joins Season Three of ‘Chosen’

At the annual Television Critics Association press tour, Crackle made several programming announcements, including the renewal of Jerry Seinfeld’s “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” for a fourth season and the Emmanuelle Chriqui-starring “Cleaners” for a second season.

“Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” is quite possibly the most popular series on Crackle — definitely its most critically acclaimed, having received praise from both the Emmys and the Webbys. The third season, which features comedians like Louis C.K. and Tina Fey, just got underway. And now, Crackle plans to bring the interview show back for a fourth season, which will also run for six episodes on Crackle and ComediansInCarsGettingCoffee.com. No timetable was given for when the series will return — if it would be later in 2014, or early next year — or which guests will join Jerry Seinfeld for car and coffee talk. “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” is executive produced by Seinfeld and produced by Sony Pictures Television’s Embassy Row.

Crackle is also bringing back “Cleaners,” an action series starring Chriqui (“Entourage”) and Emily Osment as two hit-women on the run. Production on the second season, which will span 12 half-hour episodes, will be underway this week in Puerto Rico. The series also stars David Arquette and Gina Gershon, and is written and directed by Paul Leyden. The second season will bring back executive producers Sam Worthington, Chriqui, John Schwarz, Michael Schwarz, and Luca Scalisi.

Among the other new announcements, actress Rose McGowan is joining the cast of “Chosen,” a mystery-thriller starring and executive produced by Milo Ventimiglia. She will join returning cast members Ventimiglia, Chad Michael Murray (“One Tree Hill”), and Brandon Routh (“Superman Returns”) for season three, which was already announced. The six-episode third season is currently in production in Los Angeles, and will return to Crackle later this year. Along with Ventimiglia, “Chosen” is executive produced by series creators Ben Ketai and Ryan Lewis. It will be written by Evan Charnov and directed by Toby Wilkins (“Teen Wolf”).
