Showtime brings 'The L Word' to real life
Showtime is bringing back "The L Word."
Don't excited just yet. There's a catch.
Everybody's favorite lesbian-themed soap opera is coming back to Showtime in reality form as "The Real L Word: Los Angeles," a new nine-part unscripted series from Ilene Chaiken and the production team of Magical Elves, Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz.
"The Real L Word: Los Angeles" will premiere on Showtime in 2010 and it will feature none of the actresses in the accompanying picture. Instead, it will tell the story of real, Los Angeles based lesbians who, hopefully, won't resort to murder for good drama (as Chaiken did in her drama's final season).
"Even though we concluded our 6th season of the 'The L Word' on Showtime this past March, I believe we are not nearly finished telling our 'L Word' stories," Chaiken says in a network statement. "Showtime has yet again come forward to continue with us this mission to entertain and enlighten and bring more 'L' to the world, and I am so excited to be back at it with them, this time joining with the Magical Elves to tell the real life stories of 'The Real L Word.'"
