BBC Commissions New Lesbian Drama, Will it Be the British L-Word?

The BBC has commissioned a new lesbian drama series that will film later this year in Glasgow.

This six-part drama, called Lip Service, will focus on the sex lives and relationships of a group of twenty-something women.

Writer Harriet Braun says Lip Service will be a “sexy, funny and irreverent drama that reflects what it is to be a young gay woman living in Britain today”.

Braun, who has previously worked on the TV series "Mistresses" and "Attachments", says the series will be partly based on her own experiences.

Anticipating the obvious and predictable comparison to The L Word, Braun said “I loved The L Word but it’s high time we saw some contemporary British lesbians, with all the bad weather, trips to the pub and repressed emotions that go with that.”

“It will be as funny as it is pathos-filled, because in my experience that’s how life is.”
Filming for Lip Service will begin later this year. A cast for the drama has not yet been confirmed.
