Ilene Chaiken, creator of Showtime's groundbreaking drama The L Word, is developing a new lesbian-themed drama at CBS.

Chaiken's The L Word ran for six seasons on Showtime and starred Jennifer Beals. A second season of the show's reality-based spinoff, The Real L Word: Los Angeles, also helmed by Chaiken, was recently picked up by Showtime.

According to Variety, Chaiken's new show centers on a lesbian trauma surgeon and her new colleague, a straight male neurosurgeon.

“Their lives at work – and at home – become complicated when one starts dating the other's ex-wife,” Variety wrote.

The hourlong medical drama, titled Rhodes to Recovery, will be co-executive produced by Chaiken, Eric Tannenbaum and Kim Tannenbaum.

CBS could use Chaiken's help. The network received a “failing” grade in the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation's (GLAAD) Network Responsibility Index (NRI), an annual report on gay-inclusive television.

Last year, Chaiken hinted that the ladies of The L Word might reunite in a movie based on the series, which she would write.

Another The L Word spinoff, however, appears to have been shelved permanently. Executives at Showtime passed on Chaiken's The Farm, which takes place in a women's prison.
