THE SPINOFF


Ok I've been reading about the impending LW spinoff that IC is collaborating closely with Showtime CEO Bob Greenblatt, and the lone LW hopeful that will star in the series. I have heard many names mentioned as to who it will be, but one name that keeps coming up is Leisha. It's no secret that Greenblatt thinks highly of Leisha--she's an integral part of the show; largely due in part to her impeccable comedic timing and witty disposition. I just don't believe she is the one. Her music career is taking off***she is the spokesperson for Olivia Cruises, amongst other projects she may have in the works. Now if Greenblatt offers her a substantial amount of money, then I'm all for her doing the spinoff; but if not--I just can't see her juggling her music in conjunction with her acting career. One is just as demanding as the other. You gotta be a superwoman.........
What are your thoughts?

Yeah I've got no idea who it's gonna be, and I'm anxious to find out. Is it true that Greenblatt announced it was one of the original cast members?? How out, if that's the case, then we know who it's not- Bette, Tina, Kit, and prayerfully Max. That leaves Jenny, Alice, Shane. I agree with you about Leisha focusing on music, that seems to be her first love. So as much as I've loooove for it to be her, I'm gonna say it's probably between Shane and Jenny. Or Helena, if she's considered to be an 'original'.

It's true--one of the cast members has been chosen--but we don't know who. Personally I don't think it's any of the core cast members--but I could be wrong.

Nitabe-I'm gonna give you a project..When you go to the Seattle gig--plz take as much pics as you can so we can post some of them on the blog. I would love for you to do a write-up on the concert. You'll be my personal roving reporter..lolol.

What's up Nitabe!

My first guess was Shane.

My vote is kind of shifting to Helena. I heard Dylan is coming back and if that's true, they could get thier own spinoff.

But if it was a spinoff, it won't be "Jenny" since the L Word was created, for that character. It just happened to sway to the Bette and Tina show. If Shane and Jenny do hook up, it will be the Shane show, with Jenny.

just because leisha has a band does not mean she cannot act too. I mean it would help promote the show to also have a band and visa versa I hope that it is her

speedy12 said...

frankie- I agree--but it probably would be a bit much if she did both simultaneously. Both careers are very demanding and selfish to the needs of it's artist. Leisha is still on tour once filming wraps up and who knows if this spinoff is even written in stone yet. Everything is still up in the air.

I think Leisha would prolly choose to focus on her music instead sadly...that being said I think(or maybe hope) Shane will get it. And I hope she gets Shay back...i loved that storyline. Jenny is by far my least favorite character on the show, but despite that I would still watch the spin off if it centers around her because I love the L Word that much. Im hoping for an Alice or Shane spinoff though, or Tasha but I thought I read somewhere that it was going to be a member of the core cast from the beginning.

We're all anxious for the spinoff--I guess we'll just have to wait and see.. :-)

I hope that someday Leisha and her band will have a concert in Ann Arbor, Michigan - somewhere in the Univ. of Michigan area - I have never seen them perform and would most def be there...you never know!

if it can't be alice, which i really doubt it will be just because she is touring with UHH after filming, a shane and shay spin-off would be awesome. i loved how shay brought the soft side of Shane and made her want to settle down.

if only they hadn't killed Dana, she would have been amazing on her own show i think

Helena would be awesome Kaye (and i know how you love her), but unfortunately, she wasn't an original cast member.

you know, there is one original cast member that i have't seen anyone mention ... Marina. A lot of people loved her and they made a big deal about bringing her back for a couple episodes. She's a definite possibility.
