It is sometimes mystifying where ideas for new movies and TV shows originate. In some situations, plots are devised out of whole cloth; fictions that a writer hopes viewers will want to see. In other cases, the creators rely on events in their own lives. Such is the case with a new HBO series called "Crashing."
