StartUp (Crackle 2016, Martin Freeman, Adam Brody)

Non subscription streaming channel Crackle is making inroads into original drama with Martin Freeman starring StartUp. The 10-episode, one-hour series is set amongst the unconstrained, yet opportunist streets of Miami and weaves a complex and exciting narrative, focusing on the high-stakes struggle of what one will do to reach ultimate success. But this is not your average startup incubator story. StartUp is about the emergence of GenCoin, a brilliant, yet controversial tech idea centered around digital currency-an idea that gets incubated on the wrong side of the tracks by three strangers who don’t necessarily fit the mold of “tech entrepreneurs” and a crooked FBI agent who will go to any length necessary to take them down.

FBI agent Phil Rask, specializes in financial crimes. Rask crosses paths with Nick Talman, a sharp and intelligent financier at a boutique firm in Miami, but it’s not Talman that Rask is after – it’s his father. Nick has a problematic relationship with his wealthy, irresponsible father, who disappears and forces Nick to stash his ill-gotten gains.

Instead of going to the FBI, he decides to hide the money by investing in a tech startup pitched by the unorthodox Izzy Morales, a tech whiz out to change the world. Also keen to get his hands on the money is Ronald Dacey – second-in-command of the local Haitian gang. When Ronald discovers that the money he left with Nick’s father has vanished, Ronald moves on to the next best thing – his son. An unexpected partnership forms between Ronald, Nick and Izzy which culminates in a dangerous alliance that make them a target for Rask, who plans to take a journey to the very pit of darkness to take down the unsuspecting trio.
