Crackle announced it’s taking on Rob Riggle’s Jet Ski Academy, a new original comedy series with eight episodes following Riggle’s investment in the academy.
Riggle will write and EP the series, as well as star in it.
“Crackle is the perfect home for my Jet Ski Academy,” said Riggle. “We have big plans for this brilliant new investment and look forward to partnering with the team to create a lot of laughs, and hopefully they will know how to right a capsized jet ski.”
Eric Berger, GM, Crackle and CDO, Sony Pictures Television Networks, added: “Rob has been a staple in comedic films and television for years and we are thrilled to have him return to our network for this new venture, bringing his ridiculous, fun and daring humor to our viewers who crave comedy.”
Riggle previously starred in Crackle’s 2015 original movie Dead Rising: Watchtower, where he plays the video game character Frank West, Capcom’s favorite zombie-killing photojournalist.
In addition to Riggle, Jonathan Stern, Keith Quinn, Bennett Webber and Chris Pizzi will serve as executive producers on Rob Riggle’s Jet Ski Academy, produced by Sonar Entertainment and Abominable Pictures.
