Stemming out from the popular gay TV show by Showtime, "The L Word", is a spin-off starring Leisha Hailey. Very much like Joey having his own show after "Friends" ended in 2004, the spin-off will center its story around one of "L Word" characters, Alice Pieszecki.

The pilot script for the not-yet-titled spin-off will be tackled by the "L Word" original creator and writer Ilene Chaiken, while the filming is scheduled to start in December. No clue yet on how the story will go or whether it will pick up where "L Word" left off.

Alice is a journalist of L.A. Magazine who created the chart containing the names of women both gay and non-gay and how they are related to each other. The sixth and final season of the series has been in production since summer this year and will begin airing on January 4, 2009.

I can't see how Alice can have a show without any of her friends around. The show at least needs Shane. I'm not a huge Tibette fan. Always thought Shane and Carmen were the hottest couple on the show.

The 'L Word' fans are going to want more after the final season. The show will be a success, especially starring Leisha. She has really done an incredible job breathing life into her character, Alice Pieszecki. I'm looking forward to the spin-off. We love you Leisha.

The show is doomed to failure if it cannot draw on the large support of most of the L Word fanbase who are *gasp* Tibetters. Good luck to leisha. She needs it.

Please no comparing this to Joey. That was horrible and Alice is an incredible character. I hope it is MUCH better than Joey...
