The alien invasion, conspiracy-thriller series joins the free streaming platform's growing original and exclusive content library with eight one-hour episodes

NEW YORK, N.Y., September 3, 2020 - Crackle Plus, a Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment (Nasdaq: CSSE) company and one of the largest operators of streaming advertising-supported video-on-demand (AVOD) networks, announced today the U.S. premiere of its original series, Spides, launching on Thursday, September 17.

The series stars Rosabell Laurenti Sellers (Game of Thrones) as a young woman who wakes from a coma after taking a mysterious drug alongside Falk Hentschel (Legends Of Tomorrow, Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.) and Florence Kasumba (Avengers, Black Panther) as local police detectives. The series also stars Damian Hardung (Name Of The Rose), Désirée Nosbusch (Bad Banks), Susanne Wuest (Perfume) and Aleksandar Jovanovic (Tatort, Doctor Who).

As one of the only AVODs continually adding original and exclusive programming that uplifts, entertains, and inspires audiences, Crackle adds Spides alongside original and exclusive titles that can only be found on Crackle, including Corporate Animals, Blue Iguana, Anything is Possible - The Serge Ibaka Story, Road to Race Day, On Point, Cleanin' Up the Town: Remembering Ghostbusters, The Clearing, Crown Vic, '85: The Greatest Team in Football History, Wonders of the Sea, Yelawolf: A Slumerican Life, and Going From Broke, recently picked up for a second season.

Meanwhile, local police detectives David Leonhart (Hentschel) and Nique Navar (Kasumba) work to track down the drug in connection to dozens of missing teenagers. In Nora's quest to discover what happened to her, she uncovers a conspiracy of aliens who are using a synthetic drug to infiltrate humans to use as host bodies.
