Luck o' the Irish: Creators Paul Haggis and Bobby Moresco were flush with luck and good fortune after their film "Crash," when their series about a messed up Black Irish family that keeps pulling the good son back in -- just when he thought he was out -- first aired on NBC in 2007. But it seemed their four-leaf clover wilted a bit when the series barely made it through Season 1. The take-away: Don't cast watered-down steamed cabbage and scrawny carrots when the script called for grisly meat and potatoes.
