Plot Synopsis

Set amongst the unconstrained, yet opportunist streets of Miami, STARTUP is a one-hour scripted series that 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 goes to any length necessary to take them down. FBI agent Phil Rask specializes in financial crime, and he 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 gain. 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. When Ronald, the second-in-command of the local Haitian gang, 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. Crackle released the entire 10-episode first season on Tuesday, September 6, 2016 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT.

Ron Perlman joins the cast for Season 2, portraying Wes Chandler, a multi-millionaire businessman with a level-headed grit. In the season opener, "Disruption," Nick finds his circumstances vastly changed at the hands of Phil Rask, whose relationship with the Russians has taken a dark turn. In the wake of tragedy, Izzy is pushed to the brink of a reckless decision. As the cops close in on their business, Ronald and Touie contemplate a dangerous idea.
On Thursday, November 1, 2018 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, Crackle released the 10-episode third season of STARTUP. In the new season, friends are fighting it out for power and will be threatened by what might be the most dangerous criminal organization of all: the U.S. Government.

Returning are series' stars Adam Brody, Ron Perlman, and Edi Gathegi, who are also producers; Otmara Marrero ; and Addison Timlin. In the season opener, "Rebranding," an ultimatum from NSA Agent Rebecca Stroud throws Araknet into a paranoid tailspin, forcing Wes to reconsider his financing of the company and Ronald to reevaluate his ties to his friends and his past in the LH7 gang. Nick, meanwhile, is inspired to take the company to the next level.
