The CW is developing a reboot of soapy drama “The L.A. Complex” with the series’ original creator Martin Gero on board.
Gero is known for creating NBC’s drama “Blindspot,” from Warner Bros. TV. He is teaming up with Warner Bros. on the new version of “L.A. Complex,” which he will write along with “Blindspot” co-executive producer Brendan Gall, who also was a writer on the original “L.A. Complex.”
The series was originally developed in Canada — airing on CTV — and was acquired by The CW while the network was building out its summer originals slate. The series ran for two seasons from 2012 to 2013.
“L.A. Complex” revolved around a group of twenty-something aspiring actors, dancers, producers and comedians living in the same LA apartment complex as they try to make it in Hollywood. The reboot will serve as a sequel to the original series, following a new crop of tenants in the Luxe hotel. Relationships rise and fall, beliefs and values tested, as the drive to succeed pushes all characters to their breaking points.
Gero and Gall have also set up the spy drama “The Secret to a Good Marriage” at CBS this development season, with Greg Berlanti on board as executive producer.
