First Look: Crash, the Series

What does an Oscar-winning movie look like when translated onto the small screen, with an entirely different cast and set of stories? That's the question Crash will have to answer when it premieres on Starz next month.

The 2006 Best Picture's producers (including Paul Haggis and Bobby Moresco) are on board for the 13-episode series, which features nine new characters with intersecting lives as they travel through Los Angeles. Save for Dennis Hopper, who's playing an aging maverick record producer, the cast features mostly unknown or little-known actors (DB Sweeney and Jocko Sims may be the best-known of the bunch).

When we first talked about the show, most of you said you wouldn't be interested in watching. I'm wondering if any of the new video footage of the show changes your mind. After the jump, you can see a quick preview, but the better taste is the full trailer, which you can see over on the show's website. Leaving aside the issue of whether you actually have Starz, does this look like a show you'd watch when it premieres Oct. 17? To watch the preview, just

Alright, I am not crazy about the trailer posted on this page. BUT I went to starz website and they have a good trailer there. Now, after watching that I will definetly check out the show. I know there is an abundance of little known actors, but I am sure the producers and the studio went with the best they could find, knowing that the show will be expected to be great. I actually applaud that. Im sick and tired of seeing the same actors doing the same roles in different projects. So its great we get a new crop of fresh actors in these roles ( except Dennis HOpper, of course). But I wish they wouldve cast someone else to play his role. He ALWAYS plays the crazy guy. Cmon, give someone else a chance. Oh yah, and you mentioned two actors to be the "best known of the bunch", I personally have no idea who Jocko sims and DB Sweeney are). BUT I have seen Clare Carey, Luis Chavez and Brian Tee and I do know their work and theyre great! So I guess it goes to show us all that just because we havent heard of one specific actor, or two, or.. seven of them, does not mean they are unknown. They might been unknown to YOU,butnot toeveryone else. Im looking forward to catching the series. Plenty of sweet eye candy too.

I don't like it so far... I loved the movie though. I've noticed some of the similarities from the movie.. who knows maybe it could be a good show.. even on starz.. but i'm not holding my breath.

Ugh. This doesn't look good. It's such a shame Crash won best picture and not Brokeback Mountain - still can't get over that.

The music is all wrong. It make it look cheesy when it could be a really good show. That doesn't make me want to see it. But I watch everything so I will watch at least one episode.

I still can't believe "Crash" won Best Picture. Paul Haggis is overrated and this movie wasn't the best to come out that year. The only redeeming thing about it was the cast.
