Dennis Hopper is set to star in Crash, the first original drama series from Starz Entertainment, based on the Academy AwardÂ®-winning Best Picture. This is exciting news! Starz has really vamped up their programming these past two years.
Now, here is what I think about the movie Crash and it becoming a television series…
When I first saw Crash, I left the theater confused whether I liked it or not because it got so dark. Then at times I would say, “wow, it was so amazing and the way it was shot and pieced together was unlike anything I’ve seen…it was so deep” But, at other times, when I would get on my “the media is just trying to shove things down our throats” kick, and I would get on that band wagon of not liking the movie so much. So, with my wishy-washy attitude I will say that I like the idea of a television series based on the movie. I think the television series will really let the story lines of social tolerance play out and it won’t be so quick and choppy. Plus, it has an amazing cast and set of producers attached, so based on track record alone, I will give this series a shot.
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
The series is set to premiere in October of this year.
Not too shabby Starz.
