All hail the new queen, says Dennis Quaid in this new trailer for season two of Crackle’s The Art of More, introducing new cast member Merritt Patterson as the seemingly ferocious – and very blonde – daughter of Quaid’s New York real estate mogul. Any resemblance to a certain real-life mogul’s devoted daughter might be coincidental, but hey, buzz is buzz.
The new season of Crackle’s first scripted drama begins Wednesday, November 16, on Sony’s free streaming service, with Patterson joining the cast as Olivia Brukner, arriving in New York to reconnect with Quaid’s charismatic real estate shark Samuel Brukner, described by Crackle as “a Machiavellian master of money and power who is one part charm and one part intimidation. He is the life of the party, but when it comes to his money, he can be both ruthless and corrupt.” Daughter Olivia apparently has some secrets of her own.
The Art of More debuted last November, nabbing more than 2 million views within the first month, half being new to the network. The crime drama, set in the high-stakes world of New York’s fine art world will continue “to explore the blurred lines between ambition and greed, revenge and crime. What’s the ultimate ‘price’ individuals will pay when huge egos and huge money are involved?”
The 10 hour-long episodes, which will all be available on November 16th, follows ex-soldier Graham Connor (Christian Cooke), a blue collar Brooklyn kid who gains access to an elite society through his connections with a smuggling ring he encountered during his tour in Iraq. Also returning for season two are Quaid (wo also exec produces), Kate Bosworth and Cary Elwes. In addition to Patterson, House of Cards’ Sandrine Holt joins the series as ambitious art curator Isabel Perry.
The Art of More was created by Chuck Rose, who with Gardner Stern is writer and executive producer. In addition to Quaid, Laurence Mark and Tamara Chestna also serve as executive producers, with Gary Fleder and Mandy Safavi serving as consulting producers. Brendan Kelly joins season two as executive producer and writer.
