The LA Complex creator Martin Gero might have found early success in Canadian film (Young People Fucking), Vancouver-shot television (the Stargate franchise), and a New York-based HBO series (Bored To Death), but even he knows how it feels to be a displaced Canadian in Los Angeles.

And the ones that are, are kind of weird,” joked the writer/director. “But being out of your element is something people feel as a universal in life.”
