The groundbreaking drama series originally ran on Showtime from 2004-2009. The L Word spawned a reality spinoff The Real L Word, as well as a pilot in 2008 for a spinoff called The Farm, which was set in a woman’s prison. The show was to be set around the character of Alice. GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis told the site, “The past few years have seen lesbian and queer women characters in television killed off in shockingly high numbers. It is refreshing and exciting to see GLAAD Media Award-winning The L Word returning to television where it can tell nuanced, entertaining, and beautiful stories of a largely underrepresented community.”
