The CW Acquires Six-Part Canadian Drama The L.A. Complex
January 10, 2012
The CW has acquired Bell Media's original Canadian drama "The L.A. Complex," a six-part hour-long drama about the lives of six, sexy young performers pursuing their dreams in Hollywood. "The L.A. Complex" will have its U.S. premiere on The CW later this spring; it premieres in Canada on CTV and MuchMusic tonight, 9:00-10:00 p.m. ET.
"The L.A. Complex" is a dramatic look into the lives of six young performers striving for stardom in Hollywood. Living in an apartment-style motel for displaced dreamers, each having been dubbed "most likely to succeed" in their hometowns, they now face the challenges and opportunities of a lifetime in the City of Angels.
For every bona fide starlet, there are countless cocktail waitresses. For every true rock star, there are hundreds of buskers on the pier. For every comedian with a hit sitcom, there are dozens of guys cracking jokes while pouring your coffee. In L.A., your life can change in the blink of an eye. On Monday, you might score some face-time with a big-shot producer. On Wednesday, you might sign that multi-million dollar contract you've been dreaming of, but, until then, one thing is for sure: every month, the rent is due.
"The L.A. Complex" is executive produced by Linda Schuyler and Stephen Stohn of Epitome Pictures ("Degrassi," "Instant Star") and Martin Gero. Directors are Martin Gero and Stefan Brogren. Writers are Martin Gero, Aaron Abrams, Matt Huether, Cole Bastedo, Karen Hill, and Brendan Gall. For Bell Media, Trish Williams is Production Executive; Corrie Coe is Senior Vice-President, Independent Production; Neil Staite is Vice-President and General Manager, Music and Entertainment; Catherine MacLeod is Vice-President, Specialty Channels; Rick Brace is President, Specialty Channels and CTV Production, and Phil King is President, CTV Programming and Sports.
