Degrassi Goes Hollywood is definitely a new take on the series we all love. While keeping the “it goes there” moments, DGH is a little more mainstream and a fresher look on what we’re used to. Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes are back to cast “Mewesical High” starring Michael Raye (who we all know as Michael Seater from Life with Derek) and an “unkown female lead.” Jason wants Manny to have the part, but when she flops her audition, it goes back up for grabs. Meanwhile, the studio comes across Paige, an assistant for a lame reality star. Paige gets the part but Manny is still determined to get to LA and snag it back. Plus, Craig comes back as a successful musician to swoon Ellie again.
In case you haven’t watched the show lately, here are a couple of things that have happened over the series to give this story a deeper meaning:
- Ellie’s mom was an alcoholic because her dad was in the military, which led Ellie to have issues.
- Manny and Jay were once engaged.
- Manny once revealed far too much to Peter to get an acting career, and is now bumming a ride off of him and her ex-finance.
So sit down, grab some popcorn and enjoy an hour and a half of Degrassi drama, cheezy comedy, music by the lovely Jake Epstein, and cameos from all sorts of stars.
Degrassi Goes Hollywood airs tonight at 8pm EST on The N.
