Crash is perhaps best known as the last vehicle to Hollywood icon Dennis Hopper. The show marked the Starz network's first attempt to run an original television series of their own in response to the success of original HBO and Showtime programming. The series is based on the Academy Award winning 2004 movie of the same name. Screenwriters Paul Haggis and Robert Moresco were into the idea of developing a weekly series based on their script. It has been said that the movie was originally developed with the intent of it being a TV series. Haggis and Moresco are joined as executive producers by Glen Mazzara and film producer Bob Yari. Don Cheadle, who had starred in the film, is credited as a co-executive producer. Dennis Hopper portrays a record producer named Ben Cendars. Rounding out the Season 1 cast is Ross McCall as policeman Kenny Battaglia, Arlene Tur as once-actress/now policewoman Bebe Arcel, Clare Carey and D.B Sweeney as Christine and Peter Emory, Brian Tee as now EMT, once gang member, Eddie Choi, and Tom Sizemore as Detective Adrian Cooper. Eric Roberts joins in the second season as billionaire real estate developer Seth Blanchard, with Linda Park portraying his wife, and Dana Ashbrook playing LA criminal Jimmy. Much of the story is centered around race relations in Los Angeles. Edgy writers from TV series like The Sopranos, Deadwood, and The Wire were brought in for the weekly storylines that were only loosely based on the film. The series is often praised for its amazing cast, multidimensional characters, and storylines that intertwine otherwise seemingly unrelated characters. Crash ran on Starz for two seasons from October 2008 to December 2009. Sadly, a decision was made to cancel the show when lead star Dennis Hopper passed away in May of 2010 after battling cancer. Both seasons are now available on DVD
