Starting with the same concept as the Oscar-winning film, Crash is a 13-part series about lives intersecting—violently—along the fault line of race in L.A. The premiere (which includes a manic Dennis Hopper as a record producer) doesn't make clear how all that anger will pay off dramatically. It's like The Shield, only everyone is Michael Chiklis.
