Summer Glau will be starring in a 12-episode crime drama/thriller titled 'Sequestered', also starring Jesse Bradford, Patrick Warburton and Bruce Davison (who played Dr. Peter Silberman in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles), reported Deadline. The thriller will premiere in August on Sony's digital network Crackle and centers on a jury sequestered in a hotel while deliberating over a court case with big implications.
Crackle is an online distributor of television-quality original web shows, Hollywood movies, and TV shows, similar to Netflix or Hulu, that belongs to Sony and is available in several countries in north and south America and Australia.
Summer Glau's imagination and ability to inhabit a character will undoubtedly serve her well and we can't wait to see her deliver another riveting performance in the thriller 'Sequestered'. This show is a great way to showcase Summer Glau's talents well, to reach to a new audience and ultimately will help with her career.
Here's the description of Crackle's new show:

We all know Summer Glau is a Sci-Fi queen and Sci-Fi is the best genre. Unfortunately it seems like the majority of people are not much into Sci-Fi and Sci-Fi shows don't succeed on broadcast network (see the recent cancellation of FOX's 'Almost Human').
I am convinced that Summer Glau is trying to reach to new audiences and wants to tackle new roles. The problem is that she's typecast (as proven by her recurring role in Arrow) and producers are reluctant to give her leading roles in non-genre shows. This means she has to take advantage of any opportunities that may arise, even if it's not on a big network. Hence her role in David Martin Porras short drama "Inside the Box", for example.
This leading role in Crackle's 'Sequestered' is another step in the path that will lead Summer to a new turn in her career. I'm very excited to see her in this new show.
