Crackle (Sony’s ad-free digital network) announced a March 8th premiere for its new scripted original drama, The Oath from Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and his G-Unit Film and Television Inc., starring Ryan Kwanten, Cory Hardrict, Arlen Escarpeta, Katrina Law, J.J. Soria and Sean Bean.
The 10-episode 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.
Created by Joe Halpin, who worked as a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputy in South Central for 17 years, 12 of which as an undercover officer, 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.
Michael Malarkey, Eve Mauro, Kwame Patterson, Linda Purl and Elisabeth Röhm round out the cast.
The Oath is executive produced by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and his G-Unit Film & Television Inc., Todd Hoffman and Dennis Kim of Storied Media Group, Anne Clements and Joe Halpin who is also creator, writer and showrunner. The series is directed by Jeff T. Thomas and Luis Prieto.
