Crackle’s ‘Heroes of Lucha Libre’ debuts next week

The Heroes of Lucha Libre are coming to Crackle.

The 11-part scripted series debuts on the free streaming platform on November 25th.

The series stars Rey Mysterio Jr., Mil Mascaras, Tinieblas Jr, Alushe, Dragon Lee and Blue Demon.

Crackles describes the series as “Heroes of Lucha Libre celebrates and honors the rich cultural tradition of the Lucha Libre sport while integrating an imaginative comic book storyline. With a contemporary spin on the action in the ring, the series features superhero elements making it unique to other content of its genre.”

The series is directed by Alfredo Widman (The Red Thread) and produced and created by Joaquin Vodanovich and Alejandro Ortiz. Ortiz wrote the series.

“I grew up watching these heroes with my grandfather in Mexico. Now I want to share all those emotions and admiration with the world and help to inspire future generations,” said producer Alejandro Ortiz.

“Lucha Libre tradition has been in our culture for over 100 years and we want to honor that heritage in the way it deserves. We think Crackle is the best partner to do just that,” said producer Joaquin Vodanovich.

Crackle linear and VOD networks can be accessed on up to 27 devices and services by the end of the year including Amazon FireTV, RokuTV, Apple TV, Smart TVs (Samsung, LG, Vizio), gaming consoles (PS4 and XBoxOne), Plex, iOS and Android mobile devices and on desktops at Crackle.com.
