Best Pictures make for good, trashy TV.

The IMDB is reporting that Best-Picture-winner Crash is being turned into a television drama.
  • Oscar-winning racial drama Crash is being adapted for the small screen and will appear on televisions across the U.S. next year. The movie version starring Sandra Bullock, Terrence Howard, Matt Dillon and Don Cheadle, won Best Picture at the Academy Awards in March. The film's producer Cathy Schulman says, "I hope it will air in the next year. "The actors from the film will show up. Don Cheadle is a producer and will also be on at least a few episodes. "We'll see about everyone else."
Meh...I'm not getting my hopes up for this one. Television shows based off of hit movies are hit and miss. For every well-written "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," revamp, there's a bad sitcom like "Schindler!"
