What's It All About? Inspired by the Academy Award-winning film, Starz makes its first foray into original drama by following a group of Los Angeles denizens who navigate social and racial tension. The ensemble cast is led by an unhinged Dennis Hopper as a self-destructive record producer, whose first scene involves him having an in-depth conversation with his exposed manhood. Hopper says, "My character has really a duality. He seems to have a tremendous empathy and understanding of things, and at the same time, he has no limitations [in] how he addresses other people or other races or other genders. ... He's totally a loose cannon."
Among the producers is Don Cheadle, who hasn't ruled out reprising his role from the film in the series.
