Sexuality, lesbian drama, and relationship issues--Showtime is doing it all over again only this time it's focusing on real-life lesbians. The Real L Word, from Golden Globe winner Ilene Chaiken who is credited for The L Word, follows attractive yet edgy lesbian women as they work hard and play hard.
The cast of The Real L Word
consists of six women whose age ranges from 27 to 37. Whitney, the youngest among the bunch, is a special effects artist who always looks for love but ends up in trouble. Then there's Tracy, a film executive who just recently came out of the closet, much to her mother's dismay.
Fashion enthusiast Mikey has her plate full, whether it's work behind the fashion show curtain, custom-built motorcycles, or planning her wedding with her makeup artist fiance. On the other hand, Jill is the girl next door type who's on every guy's watch.
Rose, who's the inspiration for Papi's character on The L Word
, joins the group as the heartbreaker who's hard to tame. And last but not the least, there's Nikki, the successful alpha type-A who was married for some time to a man before she came out on The Oprah Winfrey Show."
