DEGRASSI | “Goes Hollywood” movie premiere date

In Degrassi on June 29, 2009 at 1:53 am

I’m hearing that the two-hour Degrassi movie shot last year will finally make it to TV screens near you. After much fanfare, The N will debut the feature-length special August 14. CTV in Canada will premiere the telefilm August 30.

Meanwhile, the remaining episodes of season 8, which CTV aired months ago, kick off stateside beginning this Friday, July 3 at 8p/7c on The N. To celebrate, The N seems to be airing nothing but Degrassi for the next five days.

A slightly spoilery synopsis of the movie is after the jump.

In the first ever DEGRASSI: THE NEXT GENERATION movie, the Degrassi students venture to L.A. via school bus with hopes to score parts in Mewesical High, a musical directed by Jason Mewes (Clerks) under the mentorship of Kevin Smith (Clerks, Dogma). Paige (Lauren Collins), personal assistant to THE SHORES reality television star Hailey Montel (Mary Ashton), understands that in life you work from the ground up, but 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.” The star of Jay and Silent Bob Go Canadian, Eh?, Manny blows an opportunity to star in Mewes’ feature and then heads on a road trip to L.A. to win the role and realize her dream.
