Nerdist Industries has partnered with the Los Angeles Times on Hero Complex: The Show, an original program for the Nerdist Channel on YouTube that debuts Monday.

The content is an extension of writer Geoff Boucher’s Hero Complex pop culture blog in the Los Angeles Times, as is the Los Angeles Times’ Hero Complex Film Festival.

The first of 15 planned episodes will feature interviews with filmmaker Ridley Scott (Blade Runner, Alien, Black Hawk Down and the upcoming Prometheus), Leonard Nimoy, Eisner Award-winning comic book writer and cartoonist Ed Brubaker (Captain America, Incognito: Bad Influences, Criminal), and will be available on both Nerdist Channel and Hero Complex. Each show also includes coverage of topics about cult favorites and all other things nerdish.

“Nerdist Industries has emerged as one of the most respected tastemakers in genre entertainment,” said Times director of Entertainment Advertiser Marketing and Hero Complex general manager Jeff Dellinger. “Hero Complex is one of the leading sources of all things geek, and creating a show for their new channel presents exciting opportunities to extend our brand with the audience that matters most.”
