Take a first look at Crackle's upcoming miniseries Sequestered, thanks to Yahoo TV.
Crackle has unveiled the synopsis of its original legal drama Sequestered, as well as the promo poster, featuring Summer Glau, Jesse Bradford, Patrick Warburton, Heather Dubrow, and James Maslow.
Summer Glau will be playing one of the jurors, named Anna, described as "a juror that has to make life threatening decisions by choosing between her believes and the safety of her family while deliberating the fate of a potentially innocent man."
It has also been revealed that the first six episodes of Sequestered will premiere August 5, while the remaining six episodes will be available October 14.
Check out the series poster and the description below, as well as comments from actor Jesse Bradford and director Kevin Tancharoen.
Crackle's official description of Sequestered:
Danny Firmin (Bradford), a young attorney with a promising career, begins to uncover a major conspiracy behind his big case defending the alleged murderer of Governor Mark Bennett’s (Warburton) 8-year-old son. Sequestered juror Anna (Glau) is forced to choose between her beliefs and the safety of her family while deliberating the fate of a potentially innocent man. Surprising alliances form, sparking tensions and testing morals as Anna puts her life on the line to expose the conspiracy and find true justice for all involved.
From Yahoo TV:
The 12-episode web series follows a group of jurors confined to a hotel while deliberating a huge court case with life-changing implications. Judging by the poster, the jurors develop contentious relationships — hardly anybody is looking directly at anyone else, and there are side-eye glares to spare.
"The premise for Sequestered is pretty unique; it's not quite like any other TV show I've seen," Bradford told Yahoo TV. "We tried to make each moment fast-paced and exhilarating. I'm curious to see if we get the same reaction from audiences that I had while reading the script. I'm glad to be a member of the Crackle family; we're very lucky to have assembled such a talented cast and crew."
"I've had such a great time working with this incredible team on such an exciting new show," director Kevin Tancharoen (Fame) told us. "The caliber of talent that we had the opportunity to work with is incredible, and we hope people will enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed working on it."
Tune in to Sequestered premiering Tuesday, August 5 on Crackle to see what kind of drama awaits Summer Glau and the rest of the jury in this exciting thriller.

While the fans are eager to see Summer play in the next Star Wars or Terminator movies, she plays the lead in short movies or mini-series broadcast online. The gap between fans expectations and the reality is huge.
1) I'm a culprit for fostering the illusion that Summer can be hired in such high profile movie franchises.
2) I'm glad to see Summer back on TV and who knows, maybe one day...

I think it will be a rewarding part. She is very good at expressing emotions, even in ordinary, not very spectacular scenes and the series seems to provide this opportunity in spades.
Personally I am very happy that after renewed Community there is another interesting series coming from this source - ambitious projects started with 'House of Cards' should in general find more support.
Will there be any way to watch it on-line from locations outside of the USA? Or once again will some of us be forced to use some weird plug-ins and stuff to see it?

I have installed some plug-in a year ago or so (taken from one of the threads in this forum), plus my browser has deactivated location thingie.
Sorry, I don't know much about this stuff, I am just happy it works and hope it will continue to do so in August (does banging the computer with a fist help?).
