Almost every streaming service is getting into original content these days. HOOQ – the largest Video On Demand service in South East Asia – just made its first foray into Hollywood Originals with Crackle’s The Oath. It debuted with all 10 episodes on March 8, 2018 in the US, the series will be fully available on HOOQ 24 hours later. Which means that all 10 episodes of The Oath is now available on HOOQ for your binge watching pleasure.
Set in Los Angeles, this hard-hitting crime drama dives deep into a world of gangs made up of those sworn to protect and defend. A cop gang. The Oath chooses to tread where most cop dramas don’t, shedding light on corruption and “police gang” culture by examining secret societies that are nearly impossible to join. Only a select few make the cut but, once inside, members will do what they must to protect each other from enemies not only on the outside but also from within.
Sounds interesting. I’ll give it a try some time this weekend. It stars Sean Bean, so for that alone, I am giving it a watch.
Created by Joe Halpin (“Hawaii Five-O”, “Secrets and Lies”), the characters and relationships in The Oath are informed by his first-hand experience working as a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputy in South Central for 18 years, 12 of which was as an undercover officer.
The Oath stars Ryan Kwanten (“True Blood”), Cory Hardrict(“American Sniper”, “Gran Torino”), Katrina Law (“Training Day”), Arlen Escarpeta (“The Magicians”), J.J Soria (“Animal Kingdom”, “The Fosters”) and “Game Of Thrones” alum, Sean Bean.
Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson (“Power”) and his G-Unit Film & Television Inc., Todd Hoffman and Dennis Kim of Storied Media Group, Anne Clements (“StartUp”) and Halpin are the producers. The series is directed by Jeff T. Thomas (“Blindspot,” “Wayward Pines”) and Luis Prieto (Kidnap, “StartUp”). The Oath is distributed by Sony Pictures Television.
