Showtime has picked up the second
season of Ilene Chaiken's The Real L Word: Los Angeles.
The show, which follows the lives of
six lesbians living in Los Angeles, is the reality series version of
Chaiken's groundbreaking drama The L Word, which ran for six
seasons on Showtime and starred Jennifer Beals.
“I'm thrilled and truly excited by
the support from Showtime and their desire to really bust it out in
the second season,” Chaiken said in a statement. “We're looking
to tell deeper stories about some of the cast members whom we got to
know in season one, and to meet some new women whose lives reflect
additional facets of lesbian life and experience.”
Season two will consist of nine
episodes and production will begin later this year.
The Real L Word: Los Angeles
might be just another piece of Chaiken's L Word empire. Last
year, she hinted that she was in the process of penning an L Word
movie. But Chaiken's L Word spinoff, The Farm, which
takes place in a women's prison, was passed over by Showtime
