The L.A. Complex

It looks like the CW is readying a move back to Los Angeles.

The network is nearing a deal to buy the upcoming Canadian soap The L.A. Complex, Deadline reports. The series follows the lives of several twentysomethings who live in the same Los Angeles apartment complex and try to make it in Hollywood.

The series, which will premiere on the Canadian music channel MuchMusic next week but will also air on Canadian sibling network CTV, sounds an awful lot like Melrose Place. The drama originally ran from 1992 to 1999 on Fox before the CW remade the series in 2009, but then canceled it after 18 low-rated episodes.

The CW is looking to buy at least the first six episodes of The L.A. Complex, but could pick up as many as 13. The network plans to launch the show this summer, according to Deadline. The L.A. Complex stars Jonathan Patrick Moore (Neighbours), Cassie Steele (Degrassi), Joe Dinicol (Life with Derek) and Chelan Simmons (Kyle XY).
