The Crezz is supposedly based on a road in central Solihull, 'The Cresent', which was considered the poshest road in England at the time! It is still very posh! See more »
This was an extremely weird but enjoyable series, of comedy-drama, focussing on the locals who live in the 'Crezz' (Crescent) in a supposedly-normalised suburban area. It had a mish-mash of famous British faces perhaps focussing also on people who were normally known for both comedy or drama. The main character actor was Joss Ackland. I remember one particular episode where the residents were engaging in a potato-fight! It was quite vivid as I was around 14-15 at the time of its broadcast. What struck me most, was how ITV then out of only three British channels, broadcast this in the afternoon slot - where you found quality drama only on this channel, (remember 'Crown Court' and 'General Hospital', anyone?). But sadly, this programme illustrates how bad UK ITV and others have become with endless repeats of cooking programmes and 'wimmin's' type of programming in this afternoon slot (as well as 'Diagnosis Murder' occasionally - no offence, but these are very crass compared to this kind of drama and it smacks of what is lost for eternity with cheap and nasty programmes - sad, but true!)
