Comedians in Cars Redefines Sony’s Crackle

Crackle has always had something of an enigma. Founded as Grouper, a YouTube wannabe from the early 2000s, the site was acquired and rebranded as Crackle.com back in 2006. Since then, the programming has bounced between originals featuring Married … With Children’s David Faustino to old episodes of Party of Five to guy movies like Pineapple Express. Then, last year, via a unique relationship through Jerry Seinfeld, Crackle saw its profile soar with Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. Adweek caught up with Eric Berger, exec vp of digital networks at Sony Pictures Television, and general manager of Crackle, to talk about season two of the show.
