The L Word To Return (AUDIO)

By Charlotte Robinson, July 11, 2017
It appears that Showtime is currently developing another season of the fabulous hit lesbian drama The L Word. Co-creator Ilene Chaiken will be an executive producer as well as Jennifer Beals, Katherine Moenig & Leisha Hailey will executive-produce & appear on the series. Jennifer Beals stated, “When the election happened I remember I was in South Dakota watching the returns come in & I texted Ilene & I said, ‘We need to do something.” Ilene Chaiken stated, “Let’s get together & talk about it.” Jennifer Beals added, “So we were spitballing about what to do & I said our skill set is storytelling & I think we need to tell stories & certainly in an atmosphere of increasing hatred towards the LGBT community & frankly anyone who’s categorized as ‘other’ stories exploring the complexities of friendship & love are all that more crucial. Representation of everything. You can’t go backward. I would love to see the show continue to mine its original themes of friendship & love & community & additionally I’d like it to go a little further & challenge hetero-normalcy. I learned what activism is through The L Word & that was life-changing.” Other characters from the original series may also pop up & will be paired with a whole new cast of women. I hope iconic actor Pam Grier will return. I talked to Pam a few years ago about how appearing on The L Word changed her life in this exclusive audio byte. LISTEN:
