[Exclusive] 'Start Up' Season 3: The gang is all set to make Arkanet the biggest name in tech
With the FBI and the government trying to bring them down, the gang is set to create the world's largest network.
Sony Crackle's Ben Ketai created-show, 'Start Up', is the most Generation Z-defining show which takes into account the very elements that characterize these digital natives. Revolving around the concept of BitCoin, 'Start Up' follows a group of friends who find themselves in the middle of an international crisis as they begin to work on the controversial tech idea of GenCoin. As three strangers come together to turn this idea into a billion-dollar business, they have to face the obstacle of an FBI agent who is clearly intolerant of their concept and would do anything to bring them down.
Academy Award-winner Mira Sorvino, who guest-stars as NSA Agent Rebecca Stroud will join Adam Brody, Edi Gathegi, and Otmara Marrero, on the Sony Crackle show this season. It can be said that this time the show is looking into the inside activities of Araknet. In this Meaww exclusive clip from Sony Crackle, the gang is seen teaming up to make Araknet the most visionary organization ever, as Nick (Brody) comes up with an idea. Following their struggle to get to power in Season 1 and the subsequent threats which followed in Season 2, the gang is now finally in the office trying to make something worthwhile out of their business- something that can get the $200 million.
Nick explains to the team about an app called 'Self' which will contain everything we do in life, from waking up in the morning to the kind of music we listen to what we do at work. It will all be contained in that one particular app which will be powered by the Araknet network. As the gang sets up to develop the idea, a short advertisement of the company describes Araknet as a company "owned by the people with complete neutrality". It also claims that the network can go beyond government trackers which can give it a further reach for the people living in the remote corners of the world.
It can be expected that Season 3 will revolve chiefly around the gang's plan to operate Araknet and the subsequent government involvement which might hinder their intention to create the world's largest uninterrupted network. In the last two seasons, we saw the gang get their hands really dirty as they teamed together to establish the network. However, with no entrepreneurial experience, they initially resort to some shady activities. Probably in the third season, we will see them deal with some real and prominent problems of the world as their attempt to expand the network can be perceived as a clear threat by the government.
'Start Up' returns to Sony Crackle on November 1. Watch the clip below:
