CULVER CITY, CA (June 16, 2017) – Crackle, Sony Pictures Television Networks’ free, ad-supported streaming network, announced that the critically acclaimed Universal Television sci-fi drama “Heroes” and the event series “Heroes Reborn” are headlining the platform’s Fandom lineup on Thursday, July 13. NBCUniversal’s Television and New Media Distribution Group and Crackle came to an agreement to make seasons one through four of the Emmy®-winning “Heroes” series (78 episodes), as well as all 13 episodes of “Heroes Reborn,” available on the streaming network. These two series combined provide for over 65 hours of binge-watching pleasure.

From Creator/Executive Producer Tim Kring and bolstered by an impressive ensemble cast that includes Milo Ventimiglia (“This Is Us”) and Hayden Panettiere (“Nashville”), “Heroes” uses an innovative comic book-style format, divided into “volumes,” to tell the thrilling story of a group of ordinary people whose lives are changed forever when a solar eclipse unlocks extraordinary abilities inside each of them. As their stories intertwine, they must work together to unlock the secrets of their powers while battling the sinister forces that seek to use them for their own nefarious purposes. “Heroes” also stars Zachary Quinto, Ali Larter, Adrian Pasdar, Masi Oka, Greg Grunberg, Jack Coleman and Sendhil Ramamurthy, with appearances by Kristen Bell, George Takei, Robert Knepper, Madeline Zima and Malcolm McDowell, among others.

 

“Heroes Reborn” is a special 13-episode event series starring Zachary Levi as the vengeful hero-hunter Luke Collins, with Coleman reprising his role as Noah Bennet. Taking place several years after the flagship series, “Heroes Reborn” finds a new generation of “evos” in a fight for their lives after being pegged as the perpetrators of a devastating terrorist attack in Odessa, Texas. Joining forces with past heroes (including Grunberg and Oka) they must race against the clock to unmask the real culprits and save the world from a cataclysmic reversal. The event series was also created and executive produced by Kring.

“Heroes” and “Heroes Reborn” joins Crackle’s library of full-length TV episodes featuring beloved series such as “The Shield,” “Seinfeld” and “Happy Endings” as well as their celebrated roster of original content that includes the thriller “Chosen,” starring and executive produced by “Heroes” star Milo Ventimiglia, and the Emmy®-nominated hit “Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee,” starring and created by comedy icon Jerry Seinfeld; and an extensive on-demand movie selection that includes Crackle’s original feature films JOE DIRT 2: BEAUTIFUL LOSER and DEAD RISING: END GAME, as well as ALIEN VS. PREDATOR; DEEP BLUE SEA; AMERICAN WEDDING; BAD BOYS II; and many more.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
