Showtime’s L Word Sets Sail

Showtime will film part of an episode of The L Word aboard a cruise ship.

In addition to filming part of the series’ second-season episode, the cruise -- organized by Olivia, a travel company serving the lesbian and gay community -- will feature entertainment including the Indigo Girls and Grammy Award-winning singer Shawn Colvin.

“Olivia's Mayan Caribbean Cruise & Lesbian Film Festival” sets sail Oct. 30-Nov. 6.

Showtime premiered The L Word aboard “Olivia's Mexican Riviera Cruise” in January.

“It's a great opportunity for Olivia customers and fans of The L Word to get a peek behind the scenes of this hit series,” Showtime Networks Inc. senior vice president of advertising and promotions Stephanie Gibbons said in a prepared statement.

“We're delighted to be able to partner with Olivia to promote The L Word in this unique and exciting way,” she added. “Being aboard the cruise allows us to really interact and reach out to the audience one-on-one.”
