'Crash' Lands on Starz October 17

Series Stars Dennis Hopper, Clare Carey, Luis Chavez, Ross McCall, Jocko Sims, Brian Tee and Arlene Tur

Guest Stars Include D.B. Sweeney and Nick E. Tarabay

Distinguished Creative Team Headed By Glen Mazzara ('Life,' 'The Shield') Includes Writers from 'The Sopranos,' 'NYPD Blue,' 'Deadwood,' 'Without A Trace' and 'The Wire'

LOS ANGELES, July 11 -- TCA - "Crash," the first original drama series from Starz Entertainment, co-produced with Lionsgate, will premiere Friday, October 17 at 10:00 p.m. (et/pt) on Starz.

Inspired by the Academy Award(R)-winning Best Motion Picture of 2006, "Crash" is a provocative new 13-episode drama starring an ensemble cast led by film icon Dennis Hopper. Set in Los Angeles, the series explores the complexities of social and racial tolerance and the meaning of the American dream through characters whose lives intersect and collide as they strive to achieve that dream.

The drama features a disparate group of Los Angelenos, including maverick record producer Ben Cendars (Dennis Hopper); impulsive cop Kenny Battaglia (Ross McCall); his actress-turned-police officer partner Bebe Arcel (Arlene Tur); frustrated Brentwood mom Christine Emory (Clare Carey); her pre-bust real-estate developer husband Peter Emory (D.B. Sweeney); former gang member-turned-EMT Eddie Choi (Brian Tee); Ben's street-smart driver Anthony Adams (Jocko Sims); illegal Guatemalan immigrant Cesar Uman (Luis Chavez); and cocky, hot-tempered detective Axel Finet (Nick E. Tarabay).

The production team is headed by writer/executive producer Glen Mazzara ("The Shield"), and includes executive producers Bob Yari, Bobby Moresco and Paul Haggis and co-executive producers Don Cheadle, Tom Nunan and Mark R. Harris, who were members of the Oscar-winning theatrical production team, and co-executive producers Jorg Westerkamp and Thomas Becker. Joining Mazzara as series writers are co-executive producers Frank Renzulli ("The Sopranos") and Ted Mann ("Deadwood," "Miami Vice"); producer Stacy Rukeyser ("One Tree Hill," "Without a Trace"); executive story editors Chris Collins ("The Wire") and Randy Huggins ("The Shield"); and staff writer Sang Kyu Kim. John B. Moranville ("Drive") is producer, Elizabeth Kling is associate producer, and Brad Caleb Kane is consulting producer.

Starz Media's Anchor Bay Entertainment will hold exclusive U.S. distribution rights, including home entertainment, to the "Crash" series, while Lionsgate will retain international distribution.
