Crash Season 1 Episodes

Season 1 Episode Guide

13 Episodes 2008 - 2009

The Best Picture Oscar-winning film cruises to cable in Season 1 of this compelling dramatic series. It's a collection of polyglot profiles of all walks of ethnic Los Angelenos that also features another creepily charismatic turn by Dennis Hopper, who plays a poetic, proselytizing psychotic record producer in the middle of a "fallow period" of creativity. Other prominent characters include more dirty, corrupt, adulterous, conflicted cops than you can shake a nightstick at, and a boiling-over melting pot of troubled citizenry.
