Hmmm. This isn’t looking too good to me:
“The new ‘L Word’ project is currently in the first stages of development,” according to a spokesperson for Showtime.
Jennifer Beals, Leisha Hailey, and Kate Moennig return as executive producer roles.
“Beals, Moennig and Hailey will appear on the series as their original characters as a point of connection from the prior series to the new one,” a news release from the cable channel stated. “They will be surrounded by a new ensemble of self-possessed LGBTQIA characters experiencing love, heartbreak, sex, setbacks and success on the east side of L.A.”
So, don’t get your hearts set on lots of Bette, Alice, and Shane screen time. To me, they look like carrots on a stick trying to bribe you into watching a totatally different show?
Beals’ said in a Tweet earlier this year, “Think more rebel yell than reboot.”
Sounds like we shouldn’t get too hopeful? What do you think?
