New trailer for Crackle’s The Oath from Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson
Crackle‘s The Oath is a gritty action-packed drama series starring Sean Bean (Game of Thrones), Ryan Kwanten (True Blood), Cory Hardrict (American Sniper), Katrina Law (Training Day), Arlen Escarpeta (The Magicians), and J.J. Soria (Animal Kingdom, The Fosters). Rounding out the ensemble cast are Michael Malarkey (The Vampire Diaries), Eve Mauro (CSI: Miami), Kwame Patterson (The Wire, American Crime Story), Linda Purl (Homeland), and Elisabeth Rohm (Law & Order).
The series explores a world of gangs made up of those sworn to protect and defend and sheds light on corrupt and secret societies that are nearly impossible to join — only a select few make the cut — but once inside, members will do what they must to protect each other from enemies on the outside and from within their own ranks. The series takes an unforgiving look at the complicated dynamics in these organizations and documents the lives of those willing to risk it all to have it all.
The Oath was created by Joe Halpin (Hawaii Five-O, Secrets and Lies), who worked as a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputy in South Central for 17 years, 12 of which was as an undercover officer. It was executive produced by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and his G-Unit Film & Televiion Inc., Todd Hoffman of Storied Media Group, Dennis Kim and Anne Clements (StartUp) and Joe Halpin who is serving as creator, writer, and showrunner. The series is directed by Jeff T. Thomas (Blindspot, Wayward Pines) and Luis Prieto (Kidnap).
The series launches Thursday, March 8 on the streaming service. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think about the upcoming series!
