In Los Angeles, it is dangerous to have a dream, but impossible not to follow one. The constant pursuit of the unattainable causes the most unlikely characters to connect and collide in a diverse social mosaic. From chance encounters to dramatic interactions, LA is the backdrop that can change lives forever. Starring an ensemble cast led by film icon Dennis Hopper and set in Los Angeles, Crash the television series explores the complexities of social and racial tolerance and the meaning of the American dream.
They say Los Angeles is a city built of desire—a place of hope, possibilities, and a brighter tomorrow. Los Angeles is also a vast urban sprawl where those who don’t attain their dreams can fall into isolation and despair. Season two of “Crash” goes beyond the police storylines of the first season to focus on a farther-reaching collection of Angelenos from different social strata as their lives intersect. Is it by fate or coincidence that a billionaire visionary collapses in a parking lot and is helped by a strip-mall security guard? That a girl is murdered at the athletic club where she works? This season “Crash” will explore the human connections made in pivotal moments when characters must literally or figuratively fight for their lives. Nothing is random. There are no accidents. Unpredictable. Smart. Fatal. Sexy. Edgy. You never know what’s going to happen on “Crash,” but some greater force seems to be behind the glamour and the darkness. Season two will explore how Old Hollywood affects New Hollywood in a string of unsolved murders; whether a ballplayer who missed the big time can ever get over that failure; if the urban homeless can get a second chance; and how the gorgeous dames of L.A.’s film-noir past are not so very different than an ambitious temptress of today who understands what men want. They are all part of the glitz and grit of contemporary Los Angeles.
