Bell Media Orders 13 More Episodes of ‘The L.A. Complex’ (Exclusive)
The Canadian soap about wannabe stars chasing dreams in Hollywood also airs on The CW stateside.
TORONTO - Canadian broadcaster Bell Media has ordered another 13 episodes of The L.A. Complex from Epitome Pictures.
The latest order gets the homegrown soap, which also airs on The CW stateside, to 19 episodes in all on Bell Media’s youth-skewing MuchMusic cable channel.
The one-hour series about Canadians chasing the Hollywood dream was first ordered by Bell Media in August 2010, ahead of production in Toronto and Los Angeles in fall 2011.
Production on the next 13 episodes will shortly get underway.
The L.A. Complex was created and is executive produced by Martin Gero, who wrote for HBO’s Bored to Death before returning to Canada to write the homegrown drama tailored for the U.S. market.
The ensemble cast includes Jonathan Patrick Moore (Neighbours) as Connor, an Australian with a dark past, and Cassie Steele (Degrassi) as Abby, a Toronto girl looking to make it far from home.
The L.A. Complex is executive produced by Linda Schuyler and Stephen Stohn of Epitome Pictures, and Gero.
The Bell Media execs on the project include production executive Trish Williams and Corrie Coe, senior vp of independent production.
