Fall TV 2008: Starz' "Crash" Headed For Disaster
Jaunted is planning our fall travel with some help from the networks. Check out our Fall TV 2008 Map to go where your new favorite characters go.
Yes, it's real! Experience the wonder of 2004's Best Picture-winning film about race and Los Angeles with "Crash" (October 17, 10 pm), a new original series that promises to take on all the Big Issues Paul Haggis didn't have time for in the movie.
Haggis and "Crash" actor Don Cheadle produced the series, which is Starz' first foray into original programming--but the second Best Picture winner to become a TV show. (The first was the Sparta, Mississippi-set "In The Heat Of The Night." Congrats, you just won next year's Oscar pool.)
Watch for Dennis Hopper as Ben Cendars, a musical producer with a drug problem and "The Cutting Edge"'s D.B. Sweeney as the contemporary villain, a real-estate developer. Aw, who are we kidding! Please kill this show soon. At least "Viva Laughlin" had hilariously bad singing.
