The CW Developing ‘LA Complex’ Reboot With Original Creator Martin Gero

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.

Fun fact for TV shows on the bubble: You don’t actually have to have stellar ratings to get renewed. Yes, Nielsen numbers are a big part of the decision-making process when the broadcast networks decide what series to ax and what to keep ahead of their upfront presentations, but they aren’t everything. Each year, plenty of shows with modest viewership squeak by. Scroll through the TheWrap’s gallery to see the 11 lowest-rated TV shows of the 2017-18 season — so far– that got renewed. (Of course we counted “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” here, because of that last-minute NBC pickup). All ratings in this story come from Nielsen’s “most current” data stream, which includes a week’s worth of delayed viewing where available. Least-viewed is first, most-watched last.  And, yes, there are ties.

“Ransom” (CBS): 0.4

“Elementary” (CBS): 0.6

“Madam Secretary” (CBS): 1.0

“Instinct” (CBS): 1.1.

NBC’s Fall Schedule: ‘Will & Grace’ to Kick Off Thursdays, ‘The Brave’ Follows ‘The Voice’

NBC’s schedule is all ready for fall, with the return of “Will & Grace” set to kick off a new Thursday night block of “Must See TV.” New series “The Brave” has scored the coveted post-“Voice” time slot, and “Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders” gets to follow smash-hit “This Is Us.”

The network is bringing back the Thursday night label complete with branding, kicking it off with 12 episodes of “Will & Grace” followed by “Great News,” “This is Us,” and Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders.”

“Coming off another stabilizing year, which included the launch of one of the great new dramas in a decade, our upcoming fall schedule is both limited in the number of new series and aggressive in rebooting Thursday night,” said Robert Greenblatt, chairman, NBC Entertainment. “To create another undeniable night of television, we’re aligning some of our most potent shows on Thursday in order to bring back ‘Must See TV.’ We are also strategically deploying strong new shows in choice time periods on other nights and nurturing our growing comedy lineup.

He continued: “To do all that you have to have the goods, and our development teams headed by Presidents Jennifer Salke and Paul Telegdy once again delivered new scripted and unscripted shows that are among the best on television. From fall to midseason to summer, we will be programming robustly so as to achieve a record amount of original programming all year long. And when you add the Super Bowl, the Winter Olympics, and the balance of our unprecedented sports franchises, we expect to remain the leading broadcast network by virtually every measure.”

The midseason lineup will see many of the new series that were ordered, including the Glenn Howerton (“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”) comedy “A.P. Bio,” “Rise,” from “Parenthood” and “Friday Night Lights” producer Jason Katims, “Good Girls” — about three friends that rob a supermarket — and the sci-fi drama “Reverie.”

“We have very promising new series that will join one of our strongest returning lineups to date,” Salke said. “We’re proud of our roster of distinctive dramas that includes original concepts such as ‘The Blacklist’ or ‘Blindspot,’ not to mention the enduring legacy of Dick Wolf, who will also bring a new true crime series to the network next fall. ‘This Is Us’ has quickly become a defining moment for the NBC brand, and we look forward to launching bold new series such as ‘The Brave,’ ‘Rise,’ ‘Reverie’ and ‘Good Girls.’ Our comedy profile, too, is starting to hit its stride, and we’re thrilled to welcome new comedies with sought-after producers such as Mindy Kaling, Lorne Michaels and Seth Meyers.”

“With the No. 1 ratings of ‘The Voice’ plus consistent Sunday leadership of ‘Little Big Shots’ along with television’s top-rated primetime game show ‘The Wall,’ NBC remains #1 in alternative programs for a fourth straight season,” added Paul Telegdy, president, Alternative and Reality Group, NBC Entertainment. “We look forward to finishing out the broadcast year with the perennial No. 1 summer series ‘America’s Got Talent,’ last summer’s top new broadcast series ‘Better Late Than Never’ and ‘American Ninja Warrior,’ which delivered its most-watched season ever.  And the alternative momentum continues next year with a slate of inventive new projects from some of the most desirable names in the industry – Amy Poehler, Nick Offerman, Ellen DeGeneres, Neil Patrick Harris, Chris Hardwick and Mark Burnett.”

This’ll include the Hardwick-produced “The Awesome Show,” which will highlight groundbreaking technologies; “Ellen’s Game of Games,” starring the titular host and super-sized versions of games from her talk shows; “Genius Junior,” hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, which will celebrate the smartest kids in America; and “The Handmade Project,” from Poehler and Offerman, celebrating craftiness and creativity.

NBC’s fall schedule is below, with new programs in ALL CAPS.

‘Timeless’ Lives! NBC Renews Series for Season 2 After Initial Cancellation

‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ Set as NBC’s Next Live Musical

NBC’s schedule is all ready for fall, with the return of “Will & Grace” set to kick off a new Thursday night block of “Must See TV.” New series “The Brave” has scored the coveted post-“Voice” time slot, and “Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders” gets to follow smash-hit “This Is Us.”

The network is bringing back the Thursday night label complete with branding, kicking it off with 12 episodes of “Will & Grace” followed by “Great News,” “This is Us,” and Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders.”

“Coming off another stabilizing year, which included the launch of one of the great new dramas in a decade, our upcoming fall schedule is both limited in the number of new series and aggressive in rebooting Thursday night,” said Robert Greenblatt, chairman, NBC Entertainment. “To create another undeniable night of television, we’re aligning some of our most potent shows on Thursday in order to bring back ‘Must See TV.’ We are also strategically deploying strong new shows in choice time periods on other nights and nurturing our growing comedy lineup.

He continued: “To do all that you have to have the goods, and our development teams headed by Presidents Jennifer Salke and Paul Telegdy once again delivered new scripted and unscripted shows that are among the best on television. From fall to midseason to summer, we will be programming robustly so as to achieve a record amount of original programming all year long. And when you add the Super Bowl, the Winter Olympics, and the balance of our unprecedented sports franchises, we expect to remain the leading broadcast network by virtually every measure.”

The midseason lineup will see many of the new series that were ordered, including the Glenn Howerton (“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”) comedy “A.P. Bio,” “Rise,” from “Parenthood” and “Friday Night Lights” producer Jason Katims, “Good Girls” — about three friends that rob a supermarket — and the sci-fi drama “Reverie.”

“We have very promising new series that will join one of our strongest returning lineups to date,” Salke said. “We’re proud of our roster of distinctive dramas that includes original concepts such as ‘The Blacklist’ or ‘Blindspot,’ not to mention the enduring legacy of Dick Wolf, who will also bring a new true crime series to the network next fall. ‘This Is Us’ has quickly become a defining moment for the NBC brand, and we look forward to launching bold new series such as ‘The Brave,’ ‘Rise,’ ‘Reverie’ and ‘Good Girls.’ Our comedy profile, too, is starting to hit its stride, and we’re thrilled to welcome new comedies with sought-after producers such as Mindy Kaling, Lorne Michaels and Seth Meyers.”

“With the No. 1 ratings of ‘The Voice’ plus consistent Sunday leadership of ‘Little Big Shots’ along with television’s top-rated primetime game show ‘The Wall,’ NBC remains #1 in alternative programs for a fourth straight season,” added Paul Telegdy, president, Alternative and Reality Group, NBC Entertainment. “We look forward to finishing out the broadcast year with the perennial No. 1 summer series ‘America’s Got Talent,’ last summer’s top new broadcast series ‘Better Late Than Never’ and ‘American Ninja Warrior,’ which delivered its most-watched season ever.  And the alternative momentum continues next year with a slate of inventive new projects from some of the most desirable names in the industry – Amy Poehler, Nick Offerman, Ellen DeGeneres, Neil Patrick Harris, Chris Hardwick and Mark Burnett.”

This’ll include the Hardwick-produced “The Awesome Show,” which will highlight groundbreaking technologies; “Ellen’s Game of Games,” starring the titular host and super-sized versions of games from her talk shows; “Genius Junior,” hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, which will celebrate the smartest kids in America; and “The Handmade Project,” from Poehler and Offerman, celebrating craftiness and creativity.
