Looking back- 10th Anniversary of The L Word

It’s been 10 years L Word fans! On January 18, 2004 a brand new drama series called “The L Word” premiered on Showtime, portraying the lives of a group of predominantly lesbian women living in West Hollywood. Most names of the main cast didn’t ring a bell except for the real “Foxy Brown” Pam Grier and the girl from “Flashdance” Jennifer Beals but it was a groundbreaking moment in the history of tv: For the first time ever, a show evolved around a group of strong, successful gay female characters.

Hulu.com Jennifer Beals interview

This is an interview Jennifer gave to hulu.com about the Wigs series “Lauren” now available on Hulu and huluPlus

On getting involved with the project:

JB: It started a few summers ago now, I was spending some time with Jon when he was telling me about this idea he had for this channel [WIGS], Jay was there, too. All of us started to get curious about this notion of a returning veteran and I told Jon that I have been working on something similar – [the story] is about a returning female soldier and what that transition is like. I started working with my producing partner, Lauren Donner, Oren Moverman, Tony Swofford developing a project for HBO. It’s on a similar subject but not exactly.
