Crackle Gives Series Order to ‘Start Up’ Drama Starring Adam Brody & Martin Freeman
Set in Miami, “Start Up” explores what happens when a brilliant, yet controversial tech idea gets incubated on the wrong side of the tracks by three strangers who don’t necessarily fit the mold of tech entrepreneurs. Forced to fund a tech company with dirty money while forming ties with a Haitian gang, the fight to build a business pales in comparison to the fight to stay alive, especially when there’s a vehement FBI agent who wields the power to make or break those he comes in contact with — and not always for the right reasons.
Freeman plays FBI agent Phil Rask who specializes in financial crimes and crosses paths with Brody’s Nick Talman, a sharp and intelligent financier at a boutique firm in Miami.

My emotions about my birthplace, Puerto Rico, are heavily mixed. In many ways it is a place of death to me, many families members died from drug and gangmembers, there is little opportunity there and going back would be giving up on my dreams.
But there are times when I think of the beaches, when I smell the scent of the air that is more a feeling than a smell, and most of all when I think of the song of the coqui, so loud yet even now helps me fall asleep. I think of all of these and remember how no place ever feels like home to me but there.
