BBC Three Commisions new Lesbian Drama: ‘Lip Service’

September 1, 2009 at 1:51 pm Leave a comment


BBC Three has comissioned a new series ‘Lip Service’ (created by Harriet Braun – the creator of ‘Mistresses’). It will follow young (of course) 20’s woman through their sex lives and love affairs (sounds familiar – The L Word).

Though the creator Harriet Braun did say: ‘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.’

Sadly Harriet, I feel that I’m tired of shows that are about slobbish people – thats not british! High contemporary woman in the US aren’t that different than those in the UK – despite what legends say the UK has some awesome scenes – very…high class and superb archeiture (NOT A SWAMP). Though personally a look a lesbians from all ages would be good, i.e a woman who is 60 and becomes a lesbian theres a lot more to tell there than about ‘scandalous’ affairs.

Oddly enough ‘Mistresses’ reminded me of ‘Sex And the City’ and ‘Desperate Housewives’, now ‘Lip Service’ reminds me of ‘The L Word’. Harriet Bruan is so original (why not just make a UK Desperate Housewives?).

Oh well theres my rant.
