In a TV world of fledging soaps one newbie is making waves – "The L.A. Complex," a coming-of-age TV program that airs on the CW and MuchMusic, shows young people who are chasing their dreams and learning life lessons along the way in Hollywood. It was renewed for another season.
The show features Jonathan Patrick Moore ("All Saints," "Neighbours,") who is from Australia and plays Connor, Joe Dinicol ("Flashpoint," "Haven") as Nick and who currently lives in Toronto, Chelan Simmons ("Kyle XY," "Always a Bridesmaid"), Toronto native Cassie Steele ("Instant Star," "Degrassi: The Next Generation") who plays Abby, and Benjamin Charles Watson ("Soul," "Warehouse 13").
Created in conjunction with Bell Media and Epitome Pictures, "The L.A. Complex" was initially ordered back in August 2010, and now they have ordered another 13 episodes. Production on the new season is scheduled to begin shortly. It's created by Martin Gero, who is also known for his writing chops after working on "Bored to Death," an HBO comedy with staying power, and it is executive produced by Linda Schuyler and Stephen Stohn. There is also production executive Trish Williams and Corrie Coe, senior vp of independent production, who work on the show.
Full episodes of "The L.A. Complex" are available on MuchMusic.com, as are a variety of hits and lesser-known tracks that are featured on the show. Look for a new upcoming season on Much or on the CW stateside.
