La Complex

5 - The CW series The L.A. Complex was canceled after 2 seasons in late 2012, by its Canadian parent, Bell Media, due to low ratings; Although it drew a larger crowd here in the USA on the CW network.

Rumors were that the CW network may pick up where Bell Media left off, and take over the series, so that it can continue airing it here in the USA, where it was apparently faring better. But that never happened, although it was said that the network was in discussions with Epitome Productions - the production company behind the series - who were reportedly shopping it around to other Canadian networks as well.

Fans of Black & Sexy TV web series RoomieLoverFriends will recognize one of the stars of The L.A. Complex in Andra Fuller, who played Kaldrick on the program, a successful Hip-Hop artist with a secret that he believes will hurt his public persona. You'll have to watch the series to find out what that secret was.

Fuller co-starred opposite Benjamin Charles Watson who played Tariq, a talented musician/writer from Montreal working as an intern at the record company that produces Kaldrick's music, who happens to be gay, but isn't completely out yet.

Here's a trailer for the ensemble cast series:

    If these aren't recommendations... why are you writing about them?

    You lost ANY AND ALL credibility as someone that should be giving advice on what to watch when you suggested Tyler Perry's "Temptation" to your readers. Absolute buffoonery.

    Really? You're going to drive traffic to "Temptation:..." a reactionary moral screed where sexually active adults get their just desserts in the form of HIV? That movie should disappear into obscurity.

    So who gets AIDS? Only gays? Addicts? Sometimes bad things happen to good or bad or smart iron dumb or responsible or irresponsible people...wait for it...as a direct consequence of their choices. Of course, you watched "Temptation..." Right? That's why you're the expert.
    Or you just want to have unprotected sex with whomever you please and nor be reminded something bad might happen. ;-)

    L.A. Complex was an under-apprecitaed jewel. Andra Fuller is wonderful as Kal.

    Just an FYI, in your blurb about The L.A. Complex, you state in one paragraph about the character of Kaldrick, that "You'll have to watch the series to find out what that secret was." Then in the next paragraph, you state what that secret is when describing another character.

    The series also stars Firefly's Jewel Staite, who was the only reason I watched this show. I thought the show was like Fame LA mixed with Melrose Place.
