The lesbian-themed reality series The
Real L Word: Los Angeles will get a makeover in its second
entertainment website GregInHollywood.com reported.
The show, which follows the lives of
six lesbians living in Los Angeles, is the reality series version of
Ilene Chaiken's groundbreaking drama The L Word, which ran for
six seasons on Showtime and starred Jennifer Beals.
The Real L Word was renewed for
a second season in October.
According to David Nevins, Showtime's
president of entertainment, viewers can expect some significant
changes when the show returns.
“I felt like there's life in that
idea,” Nevins said during a panel Saturday at the Television
Critics Association Winter Press Tour in California. “First of
all, this network has had a long relationship with gay and
particularly lesbian audiences that I think is important to protect.”
“I think there's an interesting
version of that show that we didn't quite get at last year.”
The show's next offing will focus more
around Whitney, Nevins said.
“So it definitely seemed worth doing
a second season,” he added. “I think everyone is sort of
sometimes, with those reality shows, you get it right year two.”
