Showtime announces 'L-Word' spin-off

Lword TCA -- Showtime entertainment president Robert Greenblatt just announced a spin-off plan for “The L-Word” at press tour.

“We’re in the process of working on an ‘L-Word’ spin-off,” he says. “I’m not going to give you too many details. We’re shooting it after ‘L–Word’”

The spin-off will star one of the actors from “The L-Word,” which is entering its sixth and final season and will return in January.  Greenblatt didn’t which "L-Word" actor will star ("I don't want to be too coy, but I can't say") and added that the chosen actor is not yet aware they will star in the spin-off.

The show will be created by “L-Word” showrunner Ilene Chaiken, who will take a storyline from the original show’s final season and extend it into Internet-only content. If Showtime moves forward with the as-yet-untitled spin-off, the online storyline will segue into the new series.

Oh, and he also announced two more seasons of "Weeds" and another season of "Penn & Teller: Bullshit." So there's that.
