Starz <I>Crash</I>es and Burns

Starz is adapting the 2004 Academy Award Winning movie Crash for the small screen, and while this project was announced a while back, the cast was finally announced today. And, well, it lacks a little star power. According to The Hollywood Reporter, some people named Luis Chavez, Arlene Tur, Ross McCall, Brian Tee and Jocko Sims will head up the cast.

Now, I've spent upwards of 2-3 minutes on the Starz official site today, and while that may not be an exhaustive investigation, I saw no evidence of any other series on their roster. This made me wonder several things, in the following order:

Boss: This Is the Political Show You’ve Been Looking For

<I>Boss</I>: This Is the Political Show You’ve Been Looking For

If you like The Good Wife but wish the show focused all of its attention on sleazy Peter Florrick instead of splitting time with procedural cases and love triangles, or if you enjoy all of the corruption and cinematography of Boardwalk Empire but would prefer that you didn't have to deal with so many annoying characters, Boss might just be your dream show. And yes, I realize that I am recommending an intense drama on Starz, a network known for guilty pleasure original series that have copious amounts of blood and nudity (there's only one scantily clad sex scene in the pilot episode), or shows with a sci-fi bent. I also realize that I'm recommending a drama starring Kelsey Grammer. What can I say? Evil mayor is a mighty good look for him.

My Hopper the Hero

My Hopper the Hero So a little while ago I ripped on Starz's television adaptation of Crash for being a stupid idea with a no-name cast. While I still think turning that movie into a TV show is a stupid idea that I'm dreading having to watch, it appears that Dennis Hopper has swooped in at the last minute to save the series. The film icon is set to star in the series as Ben, an aging record producer looking for his next big hit. Am I insane, or does that sound like a character Hopper has played a million times before but still awesome, all at the same time? I'm sure he'll be snorting a lot of coke, drinking a lot of whiskey, wearing a leather jacket in every scene and, hopefully, kicking a lot of ass.
