Starz new original series based on the Oscar-winning film Crash, premieres on October 17, 2008. In advance of the upcoming premiere, producers of the TV drama have posted the entire first episode online, at the show’s official website. Not an extended trailer, the entire premiere episode.
Crash is a provocative new 13-episode drama series premiering on Starz. Featuring an ensemble cast led by film icon Dennis Hopper, the series looks at the way different lives intersect and collide in the melting pot of L.A. The show features a disparate group of Los Angelenos, including maverick record producer Ben Cendars (Dennis Hopper); impulsive cop Kenny Battaglia (Ross McCall); his actress-turned-police officer partner Bebe Arcel (Arlene Tur); frustrated Brentwood mom Christine Emory (Clare Carey); her pre-bust real-estate developer husband Peter Emory (D.B. Sweeney); former gang member-turned-EMT Eddie Choi (Brian Tee); Ben’s street-smart driver Anthony Adams (Jocko Sims); illegal Guatemalan immigrant Cesar Uman (Luis Chavez); and cocky, hot-tempered detective Axel Finet (Nick Tarabay).
With a creative team including writers, directors and producers from movies including Million Dollar Baby and Casino Royale, and shows like The Sopranos, The Shield and Deadwood, Crash pulls no punches.
