The highly anticipated L Word spinoff series starring the character of Alice Pieszecki, played by Leisha Hailey, will begin shooting a pilot next Wednesday in Vancouver, BC where the original series had been shooting its six seasons.
For now titled The Farm, it is unknown whether that is only the working or the final title, the spinoff will take place in a women’s prison. Shooting for the pilot, directed by Ilene Chaiken, is scheduled from Wednesday, December 10 to Tuesday, December 16. Stay tuned for possible further updates.
The L Word will premiere its sixth and final season January 18th 2009. Hopefully knowing who gets send to prison won’t ruin too much of the latest season. As far as I have heard it will be told in flashbacks after seeing the first two minutes where one of the principals dies. You can watch the opening scene, with one of my fav guest stars, here.
