1693 - The L.A. Complex: season one
It follows a group of Canadians living and trying to make it in L.A. As someone who works in the entertainment industry I can tell you that I've witnessed a fair share of the terrible things that happen in this show, or I know people they've happened to. It's a tough industry and this show makes no bones about it. It's a very honest and harsh show in that capacity and good for it for having the balls to be so. Take for example one particular story where a girl completely sells herself out, morals and everything, and in the end realizes that if she'd just waited she would have been fine. Such is life.
I believe that you can still stream episodes off of the much music website, so if you haven't watched yet give it a shot. I love some of the characters, like others, and hate a few - but the few I hate are, I'm pretty sure, intentional.
I'm really hoping this show gets extended. I think it's got a lot more life in it and a lot more interesting stories to tell. Please don't let it be another of those amazing Canadian shows that just doesn't get it's full chance.
