Showtime Says No to 'The L Word' Spin-Off


'The Farm', the spin-off to 'The L Word' will not be picked up by Showtime for the network is eliminating any new series pick ups.

Although Showtime has been the house for "The L Word" for six seasons, the network won't take its successor. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Showtime has narrowed down their pilots schedule and excluded the spin-off which is tentatively titled "The Farm" and centers on Alice.

The decision was informed to the producer of the show, Ilene Chaiken, earlier this week. Showtime said that it has decided not to go forward with the pilot. However, "The Farm" is not the only one passed on. Matthew Perry-starring "The End of Steve" is also out of the frame. The producers of "Steve" will pitch it around to other cable networks and allegedly, HBO is interested.

Showtime is packed in its schedule with the new seasons of their already-running series like "The Tudors", "United States of Tara" and "Californication". Thus the need for a new series is not much within their agenda. The network, however, goes on with a new dark comedy pilot called "Nurse Jackie" which stars Edie Falco.

    This is f*cking ridiculous! They should have ended The L Word properly. Season 6 was so focused on the death of Jenny. Now, they left all the followers of the show hanging. This is BS!!

    So who the fuck killed Jenny? Will we EVER know? BETTE killed Jenny! She had the strongest motive. I thought that was obvious. BTW season six of "The L Word" SUCKED, the whole Jenny thing, Showtime promised to reveal who killed Jenny in the ads for the show but didn't. The show went downhill ever since Dana left.

    How could they not pick it up. Oz was a sucess even the bbc series bad girls was a hit. They are nuts for not picking it up and are missing out on a GREAT thing. As nekosister said, people were not upset about not knowing who killed Jenny because we had this show to look forward to. Now we are lost forever and I for one have changed my feelings of showtime.

    perhaps they should go to HBO...and if that doesn't work, they may just have to degrade themselves to normal tv. although i highly doubt that they would pick up a show based on lesbians. what a shame.
