Series about young performers trying to make it big in Hollywood, all living in a converted motel called the Deluxe Suites (or "Luxe for short), produced by Epitome Pictures (the people behind ''Series/{{Degrassi}}'' and ''InstantStar'').

----
!! Tropes applying to this series:
* ActorAllusion: [[JewelStaite Raquel's]] show that everyone knows her from ended before its time because of a lousy timeslot, similar to [[Series/{{Firefly}} another show]].
** Alan Thicke guests as an overly Christian actor who's producing his own show. Some viewers might pick up the TakeThat to his former ''GrowingPains'' costar Kirk Cameron.
* TheAllegedCar: Abby's mid-90s Honda Civic in the {{Pilot}}. Partly her fault; it has a huge pile of unpaid parking tickets and still sports Ontario plates six months after she arrived in L.A. so no surprise it gets booted and is never seen again.
* {{Bishonen}}: Nick. Joe Dinicol's [[OlderThanTheyLook 28]] and this is his first [[DawsonCasting post-teenage role]].
* BlackBestFriend: Discussed by Raquel, who thinks it's unrealistic.
* CaliforniaDoubling: Inverted. Mostly shot in Toronto.
* ChurchOfHappyology: The Church of Scientetics gets involved at one point. There's a reference to "Nexu" (pronounced knee-zoo).
* DawsonCasting: Discussed, especially when 30-year-old Raquel goes out for TeenDrama roles.
* {{Expy}}: Abby's basically Manny Santos, down to the same actor and her boyfriend back in Toronto being a mechanic.
* HeyItsThatPlace: Isn't there a "Wilhelm" store across the street from [[Series/{{Degrassi}} The Dot]]?
** The community center where Raquel's AA meets looks ''nothing at all'' like Degrassi...
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: All the major characters want to be actors or other performers.
* OldMediaPlayingCatchUp: Subverted. It's been renewed on the strength of online views at [=TheCW.com=]
* OnlySoManyCanadianActors: Present but not as overbearingly so as you'd expect in an Epitome production.
* ScrewedByTheNetwork: CW's "let's wait a few months after the Canadian airdates to show it in the US" attitude led to massively lower ratings than in Canada (the CW premiere reportedly garnered the lowest ratings ever recorded on network television). Season 2 will be broadcast at the same time.
* SelfHarm: Connor poured boiling water on himself, deliberately crashed his car and set his house on fire. [[spoiler:His sister]] used to cut too.
* ShoutOut: Tariq's first job in the music industry? Coming up with beats for an upcoming {{Drake}} project.
* StageMom: Beth's a stage ''older sister'' to Simon.
* StylisticSuck: Nick's standup routine.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Abby originally ''was'' Manny Santos, in what was originally planned as a straight SpinOff of ''Series/{{Degrassi}}''.
* WhiteDwarfStarlet: Raquel
-->-We had a lousy timeslot.
* WorkingTitle: ''Highland Gardens''.
