January 30 2004 1:00 AM ET
In the fastest series renewal in the network's history, Showtime announced Thursday that it has picked up the lesbian-themed series The L Word for a second season of 13 episodes. "This groundbreaking series has quickly and successfully captivated the attention of viewers, critics, journalists, and even a presidential candidate, creating the kind of incessant buzz that signals a hit," said Showtime's out president of entertainment Robert Greenblatt in a statement. "We already have 14 episodes completed, so we've seen the strong future of the series, and with its provocative storytelling, rich character development, amazing cast, and universal appeal, the decision to renew The L Word was a no-brainer." (Greenblatt was referring to Gen. Wesley Clark, who in recent interviews has noted that the L word doesn't just stand for "liberal.")
