The Real L Word | Season 3

Television
Somer Fridays
Showtime
The challenge was to create a raw, relevant look at issues in the LGBT community through the eyes of a cast member from The Real L Word.

We cast musician Somer Bingham, a snarky prankster with the uncanny ability to stray off topic at a moment’s notice.  Somer’s rants were invaluable fodder for the vlog, which racked up over one million YouTube hits during the show’s third season.

The first set of Somer Fridays aired during the show’s third season.  From July through September, the videos were featured prominently on LGBT blogs such as Huffington Post Gay Voices and After Ellen.  Somer did a Facebook Q&A each week, and added her signature snark as she live-tweeted each episode.

Because the series was so successful, a second run featuring the show’s west coast cast was filmed on location in Los Angeles. All three married couples sat down for a “Newlywed Game”-style quiz show, and Season 1 fan favorite Tracy Ryerson was brave enough to answer Somer’s “Would You Rather” questions.
