'The L Word' becomes a reality show

lword_290.jpgSince "The L Word" spinoff never took off, Showtime is looking to revive the show another way.

The cable network has greenlit nine episodes of the reality show "The Real L Word: Los Angeles, report the trades.

From "L Word" creator Ilene Chaiken and the Magical Elves production company ("Top Chef"), the show will follow six lesbians in the City of Angels and plays like a lesbian "Real Housewives." The show is dependent on casting, however.

If all goes well, "The Real L Word" will premiere in 2010.

Does a reality version of "L  Word" sound like a good idea to you?
