The L Word - Sequel in Development at Showtime with Jennifer Beals & More to Return *Updated*



Marja-Lewis Ryan Tapped as Showrunner

Playwright and screenwriter Marja-Lewis Ryan has been tapped to serve as showrunner and exec producer of the drama, which remains in development at the premium cable network.

The L Word creator Ilene Chaiken will also exec produce alongside Ryan and original series stars Jennifer Beals (Bette), Katherine Moennig (Shane) and Leisha Hailey (Alice).

"Ilene and the original L Word made me believe that my voice mattered,” Ryan said. “I am beyond excited for the opportunity to usher in the next generation of diverse queer people. I couldn’t imagine a better time to make this show."



The L Word - Sequel in Development at Showtime with Jennifer Beals & More to Return

Showtime is ready to revisit The L Word.

Eight years after wrapping its six-season run, the premium cable network is developing a sequel to its groundbreaking lesbian drama.

A search is under way to find a new writer to serve as showrunner and bring a fresh take to the project. Sources note Showtime is looking for someone with ties to the lesbian community to document how relationships, their lives and experiences have evolved today — as well as what has and hasn't changed since the drama launched in 2004.

Chaiken will be joined by original series stars Jennifer Beals (Bette), Kate Moennig (Shane) and Leisha Hailey (Alice), who all will exec produce. Should the sequel move ahead, the trio would appear on the reboot with their respective characters helping to connect to what is said to be a new ensemble of women, with viewers following their lives, loves and tribulations. Other characters from the original series — which included fan favorite Erin Daniels (Dana), Laurel Holloman (Tina), Mia Kirshner (Jenny), Sarah Shahi (Carmen) and Pam Grier (Kit) — may appear in a potential new version.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
