Making it in La La Land isn't as easy as it seems we see when a girl strikes it big as an actress in Hollywood.
Starring Bella Thorne, Carter Jenkins, Niki Koss, Keith Powers and Pepi Sonuga make a date with Famous in Love S1 this weekend from Saturday 10 February at 21:30 until Sunday 11 February on M-Net Binge (DStv Channel 900). With a second season already greenlit for the romantic-drama series, it's the perfect time to jump into the hype or re-live the happenings.
Follow Paige Townsen, a college student living in Los Angeles that stirkes it big when she lands the role of a lifetime in a Young Adult Hollywood blockbuster (think the magnitude of Twilight or The Hunger Games). Paige is thrilled to be acting alongside everyone's favourite heartthrob Rainer Devon, bt will her new found fame skyrocket her to new heights or fizzle into the Californian sunset... because fame always comes with a price.
Of course Paige isn't alone in finding her way around the life of celebs, glitz and glam. Meet her friends Jake and Cassandra - one hopes to realise their dreams as a screenwriter while the other is just trying to make ends meet.
