The L.A. Complex (originally Highland Gardens) is a Canadian drama series which premiered on CTV on January 10, 2012, subsequently airing on MuchMusic. It also began airing in the United States on April 24, 2012 on The CW. The series stars Cassie Steele as Abby Vargas, an aspiring actress who moves to Los Angeles with nothing but her Maple Leafs hockey bag and dreams of being a famous actress. As described in CTV publicity materials, "The L.A. Complex follows the lives of twenty year olds 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 series ran for two seasons and Abby goes through some changes. Trying to get through auditions and scoring roles and at the same time trying to keep her head above water, while also trying to find love. Worth the watch.
