Crash: The Television Series?

Dennis Hopper has been announced as the star of the new Starz television drama, Crash. Based on the Oscar winning film, Hopper will portray Ben, a veteran maverick music producer looking for his last big score, in the 13-episode multi character drama. Hopper joins the previously cast Clare Carey, Luis Chavez, Ross McCall, Jocko Sims, Brian Tee and Arlene Tur.

The creative team of this series is headed by Glen Mazzara (“Life,” “The Shield”) and it includes writers from The Sopranos, NYPD Blue, Deadwood, Without A Trace, and The Wire

Crash as a television series can go two ways. It can be better than the movie by having actual character development and more meaningful story lines that don’t seem overtly forced. Or it can be exactly like the movie and ensure that the audience suffers through contrived plot lines that are intended to make us think but only make us angry.
But with the creative team in charge of this series, I think it will be good and much better than the movie.
