The L-Word Spinning Off Into New Lesbianic Territory

Good news for all you The L-Word lovers!

Showtime announced yesterday that they’re planning on creating a spin-off of the lesbian sudster. It’s going to be called The V-Word. Psych. We don’t know what it’s call. Here is what we do know:

Showtime entertainment president Robert Greenblatt just announced a spin-off plan for The L-Word at press tour.

“We’re in the process of working on an The L-Word spin-off,” he says. “I’m not going to give you too many details. We’re shooting it after The L-Word.”

The spin-off will star one of the actors from The L-Word, which is entering its sixth and final season and will return in January. Greenblatt [say] didn’t which The L-Word actor will star (“I don’t want to be too coy, but I can’t say”) and added that the chosen actor is not yet aware they will star in the spin-off.

The show will be created by The L-Word showrunner Ilene Chaiken, who will take a storyline from the original show’s final season and extend it into Internet-only content. If Showtime moves forward with the as-yet-untitled spin-off, the online storyline will segue into the new series.

Greenblatt also announced that the cable station’s picked up two more seasons of Weeds, which pleases us to no end.

Any Weeds watchers out there? What’s up with this gangster-in-the-ground story?
