What could bring all the classes of Degrassi: The Next Generation together again? The N’s first telemovie, Degrassi Goes Hollywood that premieres tonight at 8p!
Paige is living in Hollywood working as an assistant to a reality show diva, but is telling everyone she is a stylist to the stars. Marco is still in school in Canada and just wants to visit his friend, but she says it is a bad time. Manny is dating her acting teacher at Smithdale University, who is constantly putting her down. Then one day Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes come to her school to give a lecture there and Jason wants to cast her as the lead in his new movie Mewesical High. Only snag is she has to audition for it at Degrassi, where they are holding open calls for the movie. Back at Degrassi the Studz land a role in the movie until Peter punches the lead actor in the mouth for hitting on Mia. And they aren’t the only ones who lose out on a role, after Manny’s boyfriend tells her she will fail so she does and she is too is out of the movie. Back in Hollywood Paige gets an audition for her bitchy boss, but when she leaves something behind in the room it is Paige that gets the role that should’ve been Manny’s. Paige is so happy that she landed the role of Trixie that she invites Marco and Ellie to come for a visit and enjoy her new lifestyle. A lifestyle that the Studz want, so they borrow the Degrassi school bus and get Jay to drive them to Hollywood to see if they can get their band back in the movie. Meanwhile Paige isn’t working out, so Jason tells Manny to haul her butt to LA and the only way to get there is to go with Studz and Jay. Can she handle being trapped on a bus with her ex-Jay and will she get to Hollywood in time to claim the role that is rightfully hers? Will Paige’s ego cost her friendship with Marco and Ellie and her stardom? Will Ellie get back with Craig who she bumped into in LA? Will the Studz play in the movie? Who will guest star in the long awaited Degrassi movie on The N? Find out tonight on The N at 8p as Degrassi Goes Hollywood!!!
Believe me you are not going to want to miss this movie that is so Degrassi and then some. It has that Degrassi feel, but it is a stand alone movie that is directed by Mr “Snake” Simpson aka Stefan Brogren. It moves at the right speed with just enough hi jinx, but just like the show it is their friendship that keep it all together! Degrassi Goes Hollywood will become a cult classic that you will want to watch over and over again. I know I can’t stop watching it!!! I can’t wait for the next one because I know after tonight’s successful airing The N will order a sequel!!
