The L.A. Complex follows the lives of twenty-somethings living in the same apartment complex in L.A. trying to make it as actors, dancers, producers and comedians. Relationships begin and end, the need to succeed is tested and all characters are pushed to their breaking points. “The L.A. Complex” might feature some familiar “Degrassi” alumni, but the edgier fare makes this sexy new dramatic series much different than the popular teen show. The new series about six young hopefuls living in an L.A. motel complex called “The Lux” is also out of the comfort zone for “Degrassi” alum Stefan Brogren, who is one of the co-executive producers and directors of the new series. But the actor turned director, who has played Archie “Snake” Simpson on the “Degrassi” franchise since he was a teenager, says that’s exactly why he was interested in the project. “It was also subject matter that made a lot of sense to us – all these young talented people trying to make it in the place where dreams are made and somewhat losing themselves along the way, getting caught up in a scene that could destroy them or actually launch them to the next plateau.” “The Lux” is loosely based on a real-life motel complex in Hollywood called Highland Gardens, which many Canadian actors have called home. Brogren says since a number of actors have launched their careers while staying there, it’s a great place to set the story. “It makes a lot of sense to believe you can make it if you stay at Highland Gardens, or (in this case), The Lux.” Shot in both Toronto and L.A., the six-part hour-long drama premiered Tuesday, Jan. 10 at 9 p.m. ET on both CTV and MuchMusic, before moving to its permanent home on Much Tuesdays at 9 p.m. beginning Jan. 17. “It’s real and it’s edgy and it’s raw. It’s something that isn’t on your TV right now,” says Steele. The L.A. Complex has been picked up by the CW Network and it set to air in the Spring/Summer with US Broadcast. Full episodes will also be available online the day following the broadcast on muchmusic.com.
