Monk (Tony Shalhoub) scores tickets to the biggest football game of the year, but he and Captain Stottlemeyer (Ted Levine) can’t go inside until they figure out who tried to blow up a fan in the parking lot.

It’s a southward migration that happens every year: droves of aspiring actors and musicians from across Canada head to Hollywood in hopes of making it big. Now, as real-life DEGRASSI actors become hotter than ever in Tinseltown, CTV presents the two-hour CTV Summer Movie event PARADISE CITY: DEGRASSI GOES HOLLYWOOD, premiering Sunday, August 30 at 8 p.m. ET. Featuring all-new original musical performances, the CTV Original Movie stars VAMPIRE DIARIES’ Nina Dobrev, Spring Awakening’s Jake Epstein, Cassie Steele, Lauren Collins, Adamo Ruggiero and Stacey Farber.

In the first-ever DEGRASSI: THE NEXT GENERATION movie event, art imitates life following the enormous success of real-life DEGRASSI actors. As Paige and Manny seek the Hollywood spotlight in PARADISE CITY, DEGRASSI actors continue to hit the big time in reality:

Aubrey Graham (Jimmy Brooks), has taken the music scene by storm as rapper Drake; Nina Dobrev (Mia Jones) sees her fame factor multiply this fall as the star of the new CTV/CW big buzz drama THE VAMPIRE DIARIES; Shenae Grimes (Darcy Edwards) begins her second season of 90210; while Jake Epstein (Craig Manning), continues to tour North America as the lead in the Tony Award-winning musical Spring Awakening.

In PARADISE CITY, hopes are realized, dreams are dashed and relationships are changed forever. Manny (Cassie Steele) and the Degrassi gang including Mia (Nina Dobrev), Sav (Raymond Ablack), Danny (Dalmar Abuzeid) and Peter (Jamie Johnston) venture to L.A. on a cross-continent road trip with Manny’s past love Jay (Mike Lobel) at the wheel. Everyone is hoping to score parts in Mewesical High, a big-budget movie musical directed by Jason Mewes under the mentorship of Kevin Smith. But, it’s not all limo rides and personal assistants. The Hollywood experience leads to the rekindling of old flings, a lot of heartache and deep soul searching as the aspiring stars are reminded that the rise to the top isn’t always smooth sailing. 

Meanwhile, as personal assistant to reality television star Hailey Montel (DAN FOR MAYOR’s Mary Ashton), Paige (Lauren Collins) is reluctantly accepting that in life you work from the ground up. So when Hollywood hands Paige a shortcut to fame and fortune, she jumps at the opportunity and takes Marco (Adamo Ruggiero) and Ellie (Stacey Farber) along for the ride.

Back in Toronto, Manny (Cassie Steele) has immersed herself in her university theatre program and is committed to becoming an “actor of substance.” Already the star of Jay and Silent Bob Go Canadian, Eh?, Manny blows an opportunity to star in Mewes’ newest feature before she decides to follow her dream and  head on a road trip to L.A. to win the back the role.

“PARADISE CITY: DEGRASSI GOES HOLLYWOOD is DEGRASSI like you have never seen it before,” said Susanne Boyce, President, Creative, Content and Channels, CTV Inc. “With a stunning Hollywood backdrop, favourite DEGRASSI cast members and unbelievable guest stars, this movie is a great way to say goodbye to summer.”

PARADISE CITY: DEGRASSI GOES HOLLYWOOD will air on Saturday, September 5 at 9 p.m. ET and 12 a.m. ET on MuchMusic. An encore will air on Sunday, September 6 at 4 p.m. ET on MuchMusic.
