Hollywood is always finding new and exciting ways to rip off old series instead of producing new ideas. Most recently, Showtime has greenlit a reality version of the scripted lesbian drama “The L Word.” The new series, titled “The Real L Word: Los Angeles,” is slated for a nice-episode run.
Show will follow six lesbians in Los Angeles as they go about their lives — a lesbian answer to Bravo‘s “Real Housewives” franchise. Project is dependent on casting, the net said; if all goes as planned, “The Real L Word” would debut sometime next year. [Variety]
Reality show casting for lesbians + Los Angeles = no actual lesbians on the show. What you’re going to see is six attractive struggling actresses pretending to be gay so they can get on TV. Not that I’m complaining, mind you. Someone else can head up the coalition to get more bull dykes on TV. I’ll be over here, using my eyes to burn holes in pictures of Sarah Shahi.
