Original showrunner Ilene Chaiken returns to executive-produce with showrunner Marja-Lewis Ryan (The Four-Faced Liar).
In a statement, Showtime President Gary Levine praised Ryan for her vision: “Marja has brought her unique and contemporary vision to The L Word and blended it beautifully into the fabric of Ilene’s groundbreaking series. This revered show was both entertaining and impactful when it originally ran on Showtime, and we are confident that our new version will do that and more in 2019.”
