For those of us still lamenting over the end of Showtime’s The L Word, our dyke drama void is about to be filled—with another Ilene Chaiken series. Get ready for unbridled and unscripted scandal with The Real L Word: Los Angeles.
Showtime recently gave the go-ahead to a nine episode run of the reality series which will document the trials and tribulations of six L.A. lesbians. Much in the spirit of Bravo’s highly successful Real Housewives franchise, The Real L Word will kick the scripts to the curb and let the drama unfurl.
Chaiken, creator of The L Word, commented to Variety that when it comes to lesbian matters in the media, she has unfinished business.
"Even though we concluded our sixth season of The L Word on Showtime this past March, I believe we are not nearly finished telling our L Word stories,” says Chaiken. “Showtime has yet again come forward to continue with us this mission to entertain and enlighten and bring more 'L' to the world."
According to Variety, if all goes as planned The Real L Word is scheduled to debut on Showtime, sometime in 2010.
