CULVER CITY, Calif. (July 17, 2017) – Crackle, Sony Pictures Television Networks’ free, ad supported streaming network, has set a date for its new original movie, Party Boat, to premiere Thursday, August 24, with an exclusive debut on PlayStation® two days ahead of the network release on Tuesday, August 22. Additionally, today, Crackle is releasing the movie’s trailer and key art.
Party Boat is centered around Max, a fun-loving, yet irresponsible party animal, dedicated to bringing the fun by whatever means necessary. He is on a mission to throw his wildest party to date – a birthday party for his best friend, Kiley. Unbeknownst to Kiley, Max has had a crush on her since middle school. When Max finds out that Kiley’s boyfriend plans to propose, he embarks on an adventure to win her heart and throw his most epic rager yet.
The comedy stars Brett Davern (“Awkward”, “Chosen”) and Katie Leclerc (“Switched at Birth”, “Confess”), as Max and Kiley, respectively. Also, starring in the film is actor-comedian Jay Mohr (“SNL”, Jerry Maguire), as Lake Patrol Officer Walsh, who is out for revenge in order to restore his good name; and Sung Kang (“Power”, Fast and Furious 6), as Greg, Kiley’s buttoned up, devoted boyfriend.

A Madea Halloween, “[email protected]”), Emily Kuroda (“Gilmore Girls”, “Sequestered”), Brittany Krall (Spider-Man 3, Bewitched) and Annie Jacobs (Rise of the Undead).
