It was only a matter of time before someone realised that the success of a show like The L Word could be translated for a UK audience and lo and behold, we've got Lip Service. A six part drama based on the loves and losses of six twenty something lesbian females (and a few token straight males).
Created by Harriet Braun, the series sees Cat (Laura Fraser) unnerved by the return of her ex-girlfriend, Frankie (Ruta Gedmintas) while best mate Tess (Fiona Button) seems to have a bad taste in women.
Catching some of the trailers online, the comparisons to The L Word are inevitable and fair but this does look like an interesting show in it's own right and it's nice for some more drama on BBC3.
Lip Service airs Tuesdays at 10.30pm on BBC3 from October 12th.
