Cracker is an American crime drama series produced by Granada Entertainment based upon the British television crime drama of the same name created by Jimmy McGovern. That series ran on ABC from September 18, 1997, until January 24, 1998. An "innovative but disturbing" take on the standard police-detective genre, the Americanized Cracker consists of sixteen one-hour episodes set in Los Angeles. It stars Robert Pastorelli as criminal psychologist Gerry 'Fitz' Fitzgerald and a young Josh Hartnett. Robbie Coltrane, the star of the original series, appears as a villain in one episode. The remade show was broadcast as Fitz in some countries, including the UK.
