Remember that leaked The Real L Word: Los Angeles memo we were speculating about a few weeks back? Was it fake? Was it for real? Would we all survive another L World with its puppety strings consigned to the clutches of Ilene Chaiken?
Well, guess what! It is for really, really REALZ! Showtime just sent out an email to its mailing list advertizing the show as part of its 2010 schedule and containing a link to the following casting call announcement:
THE REAL L WORD NOW CASTING: BE PART OF A GROUNDBREAKING SHOW!
BE PART OF A GROUNDBREAKING SHOW PRODUCED BY A TV DREAM TEAM!!
“THE REAL L WORD: Los Angeles”
Are you and your friends proof the The L Word exists in real life?
The L Word was a runaway iconic hit, affecting millions of lives – imagine what the real life version will do!
From Showtime, Golden Globe winner Ilene Chaiken (The L Word) and Magical Elves (Peabody Award-winning Project Runway & Emmy-nominated Top Chef) comes a documentary series about the real lives of lesbians.
THE REAL L WORD: Los Angeles will follow a group of real-life, high-profile, left coast lesbians as they go about their daily lives, at work and play. The producing team plans to show viewers that the cast can be every bit as glamorous, fashionable, fabulous and even as cutthroat as their celebrated-but-fictional counterparts.
We are currently seeking ladies from all walks of life to be the pioneering voices in this important series. Must be based in Los Angeles or moving soon to the area.
We want all types, from the power of Bette to the mojo of Shane.
Are you and your partner about to adopt? Do all the bouncers in WeHo know your name? Do you consider your friends family? Are you coming out of the closet and want to help others by sharing your journey? Are you or someone you know moving out to the more Sapphic-ly welcoming culture of L.A.? Are you a card-carrying 'power lesbian'?
Whatever your story, whatever your situation - we want to hear from you!
Please email email@example.com; tell us about yourself, and include a recent photo.
That is, word for word, the same announcement as contained on that leaked memo. For Magical Elves, their security sure sucks!
More lesbo TV news is coming this weekend via Boob Tube, but meanwhile, let's discuss. Would you audition for this? Which LA-dwelling leztastics would you like to watch on a reality TV show? Spill it, Parkers! Who would you cast?
