Showtime has ordered The Real L Word: Los Angeles, a new reality series that will follow six lesbians living in L.A. as they go about their daily lives, Daily Variety reported Monday.

The new reality series is based on the network's scripted The L Word drama, which followed a group of gay and lesbian women as they lived in West Hollywood.  The series premiered in 2004 and aired six seasons before ending this past March.

Showtime has ordered nine episodes of The Real L Word, according to Variety, which added the project is dependent on casting. 

The reality series will be produced by The L Word creator Ilene Chaiken.

"Even though we concluded our sixth season of The L Word on Showtime this past March, I believe we are not nearly finished telling our L Word stories," Chaiken told Variety. "Showtime has yet again come forward to continue with us this mission to entertain and enlighten and bring more 'L' to the world."

In addition to Chaiken, The Real L Word will be executive produced by Magical Elves' Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz -- who previously produced Project Runway before it moved from Bravo to Lifetime.

"We love to tell authentic stories about complex characters and feel like this is an area that has yet to be explored in reality television," Lipsitz told Variety.

The Real L Word is currently slated to debut sometime next year.
