 THE L-WORD  @  THE STORY OF THE GAY TV SERIES 
article by Barry Garron (Jan. 15, 2004) - The Hollywood Reporter
The L Word - TV Series
#1. - On the cover of its press kit, Showtime lists a few dozen words that begin with "L," such as "love," "lust," "libido" and "lovely," all of which are associated with its newest series about a group of friends and their relationships. The only relevant omission, most assuredly intentional because it goes without saying, is "lesbian," a reference to the sexual orientation of most of the characters.
#2. - Having had reasonable success with "Queer as Folk," its venture into the world of gay men's drama, Showtime and exec producer-writer Ilene Chaiken now visit the lives of gay women, and, in at least one case, a woman whose sexual orientation is unclear even to herself. The result is a dramatic series that is steamy, provocative and filled with smart dialogue and richly drawn characters, none of whom are entirely predictable.
#3. - Start with Bette Porter (Jennifer Beals) and life partner Tina Kennard (Laurel Holloman) who, after seven years, have decided to start a family. Bette, being the Type-A career-driven one, continues to work at her job as art museum director, while Tina, the mellow and nurturing one, gets ready to be impregnated. But by whom? That's one dilemma that occupies a major part of the premiere.
#4. - The other big story involves Tim (Eric Mabius), their next-door neighbor, a college swimming coach and the eager boyfriend of Jenny (Mia Kirshner), an aspiring writer fresh from college. Jenny thinks her writing and Tim will make her world complete until she meets and gets the hots for Marina (Karina Lombard), the owner of the cafe where everyone hangs out. Poor Tim never sees it coming.
#5. - Others in Bette's and Tina's close circle of friends are Dana (Erin Daniels), the pro tennis player who keeps her gay life under wraps, at least initially
#6. - Shane (Katherine Moennig), the disarmingly charming one who prefers ever-changing bed partners and Alice (Leisha Hailey), a freelance journalist who compiles charts to prove that every gay woman is no more than six degrees of separation from every other one. There's also Kit (Pam Grier), Bette's half-sister, a singer struggling to achieve sobriety.
#7. - Not surprisingly, the setting for nearly all the scenes is West Hollywood, cinematically depicted here to look like practically any middle-class suburb. The series is particularly well-cast, including several fresh faces and strong acting skills. It's also filled with enough passionate scenes of lovemaking to attract male viewers who might not otherwise be inclined to sample drama from a female perspective. Some of these viewers may even find themselves regretting that these characters are playing for the other team.
#8. - Premiere director Rose Troche does a nice high-wire balancing job, following the life and loves of these characters and never letting us forget the importance of both. If the premiere seems strangely lacking in references to the immediate families of these characters, be patient. Subsequent episodes will demonstrate the all-too-problematic existence of family members.

 THE L-WORD  @  L'HISTOIRE DE LA SERIE TV GAY 
article par Barry Garron (Jan. 15, 2004) - The Hollywood Reporter
The L Word - TV Series
#1. - Sur la couverture de son kit de presse, Showtime énumère une douzaine de mots qui commencent par "L," comme "love," "lust," "libido" et "lovely," tous étant associés à sa toute récente série portant sur un groupe d'amies et leurs relations. Le seul oubli, assurément intentionnel parce qu'il en va de soi, est le mot "lesbienne," une référence à l'orientation sexuelle de presque tous les caractères de la série.
#2. - Ayant obtenu un succès appréciable avec Queer as Folk, son entreprise dans un monde dramatique d'hommes gay, Showtime et le producteur-auteur exécutif Ilene Chaiken visite maintenant la vie de femmes gay, et, dans pour au moins un cas, une femme pour laquelle son orientation sexuelle n'est pas claire même envers elle-même. Le résultat est une série dramatique qui est vaporisant, provocateur et rempli de dialogue futé et des caractères richement dessinés, aucun d'eux n'est entièrement prévisible.
#3. - Commençons avec Bette Porter (joué par Jennifer Beals) et son partenaire de vie commune Tina Kennard (interprété par Laurel Holloman) lesquelles, après 7 ans, ont décidé de commencer une famille. Bette, étant le Type-A carriériste, continues à travailler à son poste en tant que directrice de musée d'art, pendant que Tina, au caractère mûr et apaisant, se prépare à être inséminée. Mais par qui ? C'est l'un des dilemmes qui occupe une majeure partie de la Première.
#4. - L'autre grande histoire implique Tim (joué par Eric Mabius), leur voisin d'à côté, un entraîneur de natation d'université et le petit ami amoureux de Jenny (interprété par Mia Kirshner), un auteur en devenir fraîchement sortie de l'université. Jenny pense à écrire et Tim comblera son monde jusqu'à ce qu'elle rencontre et soit très attirée par Marina (joué par Karina Lombard), la propriétaire du café là où chacun traîne. Le pauvre Tim ne s'apercevra de rien.
#5. - Dans le cercle étroit des amis de Bette et de Tina il y a Dana (joué par Erin Daniels), la joueuse de tennis professionnel qui cache sa vie d'homosexuelle, du moins au début de la série.
#6. - Shane (joué par Katherine Moennig), la charmante de manière désarmante qui préfère changer de partenaires aussi souvent que possible et Alice (interprété par Leisha Hailey), une journaliste indépendante qui compile des diagrammes afin de prouver que chaque femme lesbienne n'est pas plus qu'à six degrés d'une séparation de chacune autre. Il y a aussi Kit (joué par Pam Grier), la demi-soeur de Bette, une chanteuse qui se bat pour devenir sobre.
#7. - Sans surprise, le décor pour presque toutes les scènes est West Hollywood, représenté cinématiquement pour ressembler pratiquement à toute banlieue de classe moyenne. La distribution est particulièrement bien faite, y compris plusieurs nouveaux visages et de fortes aptitudes d'acteur. C'est également assez rempli de scènes passionnées pour attirer un public mâle lequel ne pourrait autrement être attiré par ce genre de drame d'une perspective femelle. Quelques-uns de ces spectateurs pourraient même regretter que ces personnages soient joués pour l'autre équipe.
#8. - La directrice de la Première Rose Troche fait un bon travail d'équilibre, suivant la vie et les amours de ces personnages et ne nous laisse jamais oublier l'importance des deux. Si la Première semble étrangement manquer de références aux familles proches des personnages, soyez patients. Les épisodes suivants démontreront l'existence problématique des membres des familles.

PLANETOUT ENTERTAINMENT
An interview with Jennifer Beals
: Beautiful "L Word" star Jennifer Beals recently sat down with PlanetOut entertainment editor Jenny Stewart and show producer Ilene Chaiken to talk about the Bette-Tina breakup, celebrity crushes and, of course, the jail scene.
: Director Rose Troche apparently made a videotape of various onscreen love scenes for the cast to watch. Was this helpful ?
: Yes, she made a cassette for us of a series of both lesbian and heterosexual love scenes, and she thought some of those scenes worked and some of them didn't. She wanted us to see and judge for ourselves which ones worked and which didn't -- and why.
: So what were some of those movies ?
: Bound, which worked really well, Claire of the Moon and The Hunger. And when we watched them, the ones that worked, regardless of the director, were the ones where the actors weren't fearful. When somebody was fearful, you could see it right away. It takes you out of the story, and that's to be avoided at all costs.

HOLLOMAN INTERVIEW ON THIRD SEASON
The L Word's Pregnant Pause

We've seen plenty of pregnant ladies on TV, but never one like The L Word's Tina Kennard, as played by real mommy-to-be Laurel Holloman. As befits the no-holds-barred lustiness of Showtime's lesbian drama (Sundays at 10 pm/ET), Tina's — and Laurel's — expanding belly didn't keep her from doing love scenes with ex-girlfriend Bette (Jennifer Beals) and the haughty Helena (Rachel Shelly). And how's this for a twist on life imitating art: Now that Holloman has had her child (6-month-old Lola), Beals has revealed that she's expecting! TVGuide.com touched base with Holloman a few weeks before she returned to Vancouver to shoot L Word's third season.

TVGuide.com: So now that Jennifer Beals is pregnant, you'll have to deal with her hormonal issues on the set. Fair play ?
Laurel Holloman:
[Laughs] We're pretty good at it now. I'll take care of her this year, because she really took care of me!

TVG: Will Ms. Beals' pregnancy be written into the show like yours was?
Holloman:
Jennifer really didn't want to be pregnant on the show, and everybody has come to the conclusion that it would just be repetitive [coming right after mine]. But she'll look glowing in her close-ups!

TVG: You really struck a feminist blow by portraying a heavily pregnant woman as feeling strong sexual desires — and being very sexually appealing to others around her.
Holloman:
I was really pregnant, and I had gestational diabetes and was on insulin, which didn't make me feel so sexy. But I wanted to be part of something that was such a celebration of pregnancy and a womanly body. I thought it was very progressive. And a lot of women have sexual desire in the last part of their pregnancy, which is sort of interesting.

TVG: Kudos for your bravery. You were next to naked in love scenes and nude in the underwater labor scene.
Holloman:
And I [had] gained 30 pounds! As it was happening, I wasn't thinking about whether it was courageous or anything. I'd like to look at my career when I'm older and go, "Hey, I really did things that were hard." As an actress, it's one of the most cool things I've ever done. Also, I did The Incredibly True Adventures of Two Girls in Love at a young age, playing a little baby butch dyke. So very early on, I just dropped vanity and preconceived notions of what I'm supposed to look like.

TVG: You had some hot scenes with Helena (The L Word Saison 2), especially in the pool. Will Rachel Shelly be back even though your characters have broken up?
Holloman:
Yeah! Helena will definitely be back. She's a great addition, and Rachel Shelly is a delight to work with. I was seven months pregnant in that scene.

TVG: Did your situation ever make you laugh? You were this massively pregnant, married heterosexual woman in steamy clinches with gorgeous women.
Holloman:
It was a little comical the first time I had to do a love scene pregnant. I was in the pool, and Rachel and I were laughing because the baby was kicking! It was easy to do [pregnant love] scenes with Rachel and Jennifer. I don't know if I could have done that with a man. [Laughs]

TVG: Speaking of men, what was your husband's reaction?
Holloman:
He [Hollywood production designer Paul Macherey] was very proud of me. He's an artist, so he would never tell me what to incorporate into my art, just like I would never tell him what to design.

TVG: You went through most of your pregnancy on camera.
Holloman:
In the first episode, I was four-and-a-half months pregnant — and I worked until the day before my water broke!

TVG: Wow!
Holloman:
I didn't make it to the last episode. I had an emergency Caesarian section, just like Tina. On my last day, I was supposed to have a meeting with [L Word creator] Ilene Chaikin. My water broke and I was in the hospital that night in labor. I had to do reshoots for the final show five weeks after the birth of my baby. It was pretty interesting; they pretty much shot the emergency C-section in the final scene, after I had a real one.

TVG: Talk about art imitating life! Was Tina's story always written to include the emergency medical procedure?
Holloman:
Yes. They wanted to show how unpredictable birth can be. Which it can! I [personally] had no intention of having an emergency C-section. [Laughs]

TVG: Can you give us any hints about next season?
Holloman:
Everyone's back — and throw whatever you expect out the window. There will be lots of twists and turns. And again, there is material that hasn't been seen on the screen. It doesn't always end in a picture-perfect way.

TVG: Please, no more suffering for Jenny (Mia Kirschner). We can't take any more.
Holloman:
Things will get better for her. But, for some characters where you think it will be all better, it might not be.

HOLLOMAN INTERVIEW SUR LA SAISON 3
La Pause Enceinte dans The L Word

On a vu beaucoup de femmes enceintes à la télé, mais jamais une comme Tina Kennard dans la série The L Word, interprétée par une véritable femme enceinte Laurel Holloman. Tel que convenu dans la série TV lesbienne dramatique sans tabou de Showtime (dimanche à 10 pm/ET), le ventre gonflé de Tina — et Laurel — ne l'a pas empêchée de faire des scènes d'amour avec son ex-petite amie Bette (Jennifer Beals) et la hautaine Helena (Rachel Shelly). Et voici un exemple de l'art imitant la vie : Maintenant que Holloman a eu son enfant (Lola agée de 6 mois), Beals a révélé qu'elle attend un enfant ! TVGuide.com en a parlé avec Holloman quelques semaines avant qu'elle revienne à Vancouver pour tourner la troisième de la série L Word.

TVGuide.com: Et maintenant que Jennifer Beals est enceinte, vous aurez à gérer le sujet de ses hormones sur le lieu du tournage. Franc jeu ?
Laurel Holloman: [Rires] On s'est bien entraîné. Je prendrai soin d'elle cette année, parce qu'elle s'était bien occupée de moi!

TVG: Est-ce que la grossesse de Ms. Beals sera adaptée dans la série comme ce fût le cas pour la vôtre ?
Holloman: Jennifer n'a pas voulu réellement être enceinte dans la série, et tout le monde en est venu à la conclusion que ce serait juste répétitif [arrivant juste après la mienne]. Mais elle sera resplendissante dans ses plans rapprochés!

TVG: Vous avez vraiment frappé un coup féministe en dépeignant une femme enceinte avec de très exigeants désirs sexuels et étant très attirante pour les autres autour d'elle.
Holloman: J'étais vraiment enceinte, et j'ai souffert du diabète et je prenais de l'insuline, ce qui ne me donnait pas l'impression d'être sexy. Mais j'ai voulu faire partie de quelque chose qui était une telle célébration de la grossesse et d'un corps féminin. J'ai pensé que c'était très évolué. Et beaucoup de femmes ont un désir sexuel dans la dernière partie de leur grossesse, ce qui est très intéressant.

TVG: Félicitations pour votre courage. Vous étiez presque nue dans les scènes d'amour et nue dans la scène de travail sous-marine.
Holloman: Et j'ai pris 30 livres! Au moment où c'est arrivé, je ne pensais pas au fait que ce soit courageux ou quelque chose. Je voudrais penser à ma carrière quand je serai plus âgée et dire, "Hé, j'ai vraiment fait des choses qui étaient difficiles." En tant qu'actrice, c'est l'une des choses les plus agréables que j'ai jamais faites. Aussi, j'ai fait The Incredibly True Adventures of Two Girls in Love à un très jeune âge, interprétrant un petit bébé butch lesbien. Ainsi très tôt, j'ai juste laissé tomber la vanité et des notions préconçues sur ce à quoi je devais ressembler.

TVG: Vous avez eu quelques scènes chaudes avec Helena (The L Word Saison 2), particulièrement dans la piscine. Rachel Shelly sera-t-elle de retour quoique vos personnages se soient séparées ?
Holloman: Oui, Helena sera définitivement de retour. Elle est un grand plus, et Rachel Shelly c'est un plaisir de travailler avec. J'étais sept mois enceinte dans cette scène.

TVG: Votre condition vous a-t-elle jamais fait rire ? Vous étiez cette femme massivement enceinte, femme hétérosexuelle mariée dans des endroits vaporeux avec des femmes splendides.
Holloman: C'était un peu comique la première fois que j'ai dû faire une scène d'amour enceinte. J'étais dans la piscine, et Rachel et moi on riait parce que le bébé donnait des coups de pied ! C'était facile de faire des scènes [d'amour enceinte] avec Rachel et Jennifer. Je ne sais pas si j'aurais pu faire ça avec un homme. [Rires]

TVG: En parlant des hommes, quelle était la réaction de votre mari ?
Holloman: Il [Hollywood producteur dessinateur Paul Macherey] était très fier de moi.
C'est un artiste, ainsi il ne me dira jamais quoi incorporer à mon art, juste comme je ne lui dirai jamais quoi concevoir.

TVG: Vous avez passé la majeure partie de votre grossesse sous l'oeil de la caméra.
Holloman: Dans le premier épisode, j'étais enceinte de quatre mois et demi — et j'ai travaillé jusqu'au jour avant que mes eaux crèvent!

TVG: Wow!
Holloman: Je n'ai pu faire le dernier épisode. J'ai eu une césarienne d'urgence, juste comme Tina. Mon dernier jour, je devais avoir un entretien avec [The L Word créateur] Ilene Chaikin. Mes eaux ont crevées et j'étais à l'hôpital pour accoucher cette nuit là. J'ai dû refaire des scènes de la finale cinq semaines après la naissance de mon bébé. C'était assez intéressant; ils ont ajouté la scène d'urgence dans la scène finale, après que j'en ai eu une vraie.

TVG: Parlant de l'art de l'imitation ! L'histoire de Tina avait-t-elle été écrite en incluant la procédure de secours médicale ?
Holloman: Oui. Ils ont voulu montrer à quel point la naissance peut être imprévisible. Ce qui peut arriver! Je [personnellement] n'avais aucune intention d'aller aux urgences. [Rire]

TVG: Pouvez-vous nous donner des révélations sur la saison prochaine ?
Holloman: Tout le monde est de retour — et attendez-vous à tout. Il y aura un bon nombre de tournures et de retournements. Et encore, il y a du matériel qui n'a pas encore été vu à l'écran. Ca ne finit pas toujours d'une manière parfaite.

TVG: SVP, plus de souffrance pour Jenny (Mia Kirschner). On n'en peut plus.
Holloman:
Les choses vont être meilleures pour elle. Mais, pour quelques-unes pour lesquelles vous pensez que tout ira pour le mieux, ça se pourrait que non.
