MTV International has picked up the first two seasons of Canadian drama series The LA Complex in a deal with independent distributor Echo Bridge.
The first (6x60′) and second (13x60′) seasons will air on MTV’s international channels in more than 170 territories, including Scandinavia, Latin America, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Asia, Africa, Poland and Italy.
The teen soap series, produced by Epitome Pictures, originally aired on CTV in Canada and premiered on The CW in the US in April. It has also performed well on VoD platform Hulu.
Viacom-owned MTV is planning a 2013 international broadcast launch for the series, which tells the story of young performers trying to make it big in Hollywood and stars Cassie Steele.
Echo Bridge is heading to Mipcom next week with a raft of factual and drama titles and has recently expanded the duties of Melissa Caron, VP international sales, to include the documentary division, charged with acquiring non-scripted programmes for international distribution.
