US AVoD platform Crackle Plus is launching an ad-supported network via parent company Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment (CSSE).

Launching this fall, the CSSE platform will comprise a free ad-supported streaming TV channel and an on-demand offering, and will feature the film and TV assets of Sonar Entertainment, which CSSE recently purchased.

The Sonar library includes 700 movies and 1,800 TV episodes, covering both scripted and unscripted programming.

Meanwhile, Crackle Plus has announced a new slate of content for this year, comprising a host of unscripted shows, docs and feature films.

The unscripted shows and docs include a second season of Ashton Kutcher’s Going From Broke, in which experts help people facing extreme debt to overcome crippling financial struggles, and Riding Phat, a new series that follows the hectic entrepreneurial journey of Phat Scooter as it strives to become the top electric scooter company in the US.

Also coming up is The Uncommon History of Very Common Things, a half-hour series examining the unknown history of everyday items, and Inside the Black Box, which spotlights the greatest black artists in the global entertainment industry.

Crackle Plus’s new slate also features four docuseries, including Vince Carter: Legacy, which explores the highs and lows of the professional basketballer, and Promiseland, a coming-of-age story about 2020 NBA rookie sensation Ja Morant.

The Green Wave, meanwhile, tells the comeback story of the Summerville High School basketball team after their coach died in a fire, while The Machine follows underfunded public sports high school Long Beach Poly as it struggles to maintain dominance in a field that contains million-dollar private school programmes.
