Crackle Premieres ‘Trenches’21 Jan, 2010 By: Billy Gil
Sony Pictures Entertainment’s online video portal Crackle Feb. 16 will bow the original sci-fi Web series “Trenches.”
The remaining nine episodes of the show will be released through March 5. Each episode is five to seven minutes long.
The show comes from indie producer and director Shane Felux (“Star Wars Revelations” and “Pitching Lucas”), is based on an original story by Dawn Cowings and Sarah Yaworsky, and is written by Cowings, Yaworsky, Peter Gamble Robinson and Ian Shorr. It takes place on an embattled planet on which a failed rescue attempt forces a young soldier and his fellow troops to team with their enemy against savage beasts, and stars Mercy Malick as Captain Racine as well as several actors from HBO’s “The Wire” — Micci Sampery, Lev Gorn and Kelley Slagle.
