Crackle's 'Chosen' Series Coming to China


A Mandarin language version of the made-for-Crackle series, "Chosen", will be going into production this Spring with an expected Fall 2017 premier date. Sony will co-produce the show in partnership with the Chinese video platform, iQIYI.

"Chosen" follows lawyer Ian Mitchell, who is brought into a deadly game when he receives a box that contains a gun and a picture of a stranger. Along with those items, the box includes instructions for Mitchell to kill the pictured individual. After being attacked by another stranger, Mitchell discovers he has been chosen to take part in the lethal contest by a mysterious organization known as The Watchers, a group he must outwit in order to survive and have any chance to return to his previously normal life with his family.

The U.S. version of the series has complete three seasons and it stars Chad Michael Murray, Milo Ventimiglia, Nicky Whelan, Sarah Roemer, Brandon Routh, Caitlin Carmichael, Diedrich Bader, Rose McGowan and Brett Davern.
