Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment and Edison Nation, Inc. have announced that the 5th season of the Emmy Award winning series Everyday Edisons will air exclusively on Crackle, beginning this March.
The series originally ran on PBS for four seasons beginning in 2006. Each episode of the upcoming season will feature three inventors who will be coached by a team of mentors. After getting advice from the mentors and refining their pitches, the inventors will present their ideas to a panel of judges.
Bringing the series back are Chris Ferguson, CEO of Edison Nation, Michael Cable, original series producer and winner of 23 Emmy Awards—including one for Outstanding Educational / Informational Program for Everyday Edisons —and Louis Foreman, CEO of Eventys Partners and original series co-creator.
As CEO of Edison Nation, Ferguson is enthusiastic about having viewers watch the series on Crackle. “With its tremendous audience reach and reputation for original inspirational reality programming such as Going from Broke and On Point, Crackle is the perfect home for Everyday Edisons.”
“We are thrilled to be the exclusive home for Everyday Edisons,” noted Philippe Guelton, president of Crackle Plus. “There is no doubt that the series will inspire and entertain Crackle users. It is part of our constant effort to offer audiences content that is premium, exclusive, and always free.”
Each episode will have one winner who will receive $5,000 and the opportunity to work with Edison Nation to bring their product to market.
Michael Cable, producer of Everyday Edisons, notes, “When Everyday Edisons first premiered in 2006, there was no other program like it. It is the original ‘pitch’ program and has launched many successful inventions. The new series will showcase a number of incredible new ideas and we are excited to be working with many of these inventors to bring their ‘baby’ to the marketplace.”
Catch up on season 4 of Everyday Edisons now on Crackle before season 5 premieres in March.
