Crackle Show Helps Debtors

Going from Broke, a reality show in which financial experts help debtors find solvency, debuts a second season tomorrow, May 20, on free streamer Crackle. Episodes will debut weekly on Thursdays through June 24.

Executive produced by Ashton Kutcher, and co-hosted by Chegg CEO Dan Rosensweig and entrepreneur Tonya Rapley, this season’s six Going From Broke episodes feature the following participants seeking to escape spiraling debt:

  • Isabel, a 24-year-old burdened with student loans. She wants to pay off her debt, buy a home and plan a wedding before she turns 30.  
  • College sweethearts Enam and Carlin, who owe more than $200,000. That deficit grows due to medical treatments for their two-year-old son. How can they become debt-free and give their son a better life?
  • Single mom Tina, who wants to tackle mounting bills and debt she took on during her divorce.
  • New parents Jake and Chelsea, who have compounding medical debt due to several miscarriages. With Chelsea pregnant again and reeling from lost work due to the pandemic, the couple hopes to buy a first home before the baby’s birth.
  • Ryan, a 26-year-old contractor who lives at home and supports a mother battling Stage 3 breast cancer. He seeks to prevent foreclosure on their house.
  • The Donovan, a classically trained concert pianist, who struggles with student debt and pandemic-caused unemployment.

“The student debt crisis continues to plague our country, threatening disastrous consequences for families and generations to come,” said Rosensweig.

“The emotional toll of debt can be suffocating, making it difficult to make the right choices,” said Rapley.

Crackle is available as a 24/7 channel and on demand via Fire TV, Roku TV, Apple TV, smart TVs (Samsung, LG, Vizio), gaming consoles (PS4 and XBoxOne), Plex, iOS, Android, and at
