Cra$h & Burn will feature at the 2010 BBC Showcase, where potential broadcast and cable suitors will eye its nine-and-a-half hours. Creator Malcolm MacRury and star Luke Kirby will attend the event.
Cra$h & Burn has just completed its first season on Showcase. I wasn’t too high on the show when it debuted, but Cra$h & Burn has become very good in recent weeks.
The show has become more-or-less straight drama with comedic flourishes. The writing is gutsy enough to (mild spoiler, kids) write off Dan Duran’s character near the end of Cra$h & Burn‘s first season. It’s become a good fit for Showcase.
The deal with BBC Worldwide strengthens the show’s chances for renewal. I hope Showcase isn’t stupid enough to cancel Cra$h & Burn, or put it up on blocks like it has Testees. Speaking of which, whatever happened to Shattered?
