Here is the principal actor casting notice for Showtime's Vancouver-lensed "L Word" spin-off, "The Farm", set at a California Women's Correctional facility :

''ALICE PIESZECKI' (CAST): LEISHA HAILEY

['WADE DAWSON'] Mid-20s (25), any ethnicity, female. Wade Dawson is cocky and handsome. She's on a strict diet of anti-psychotics to combat her violent outbursts an internal rage that Wade also self-medicates with sex of the intense, indiscreet variety. Her internal struggle is enough to almost break your heart until you remember how easily she could break you...

['GRACIELA MARTINEZ'] Late 20s, Latina or African American. Graciela Martinez is a known gang leader with a history of drugs, robbery, assault, you name it. Her compadres on the street might look up to her as a mother but Graciela reserves her true mothering instincts for her two young children at home whom she loves deeply and would do anything to protect...


['VALENTINA GALINDO'] Late 30s, any ethnicity. Valentina Galindo is a character of mythical proportions. Some would tell you she's a hardened gangster who's ordered more murders than all her male counterparts put together. Others would testify she's a community activist and organizer and certainly her humble appearance, evident intelligence and articulate manner would vouch for the same...

Despite her sometimes affectless manner, Miller is a woman of conscience who cares about things like justice, dignity and humanity. Where others might tow the line, Miller is willing to go against the status quo to set things right...

['SHERI SILVA'] Mid 30s to early 40s, Latina or Caucasian. Sheri Silva is of a weathered prettiness, delicate and prepossessing - the kind to make friends fast. Flirtatious (though she'd never admit it) and manipulative to the core, she works hard to make relationships work for her...

['TOOTSIE FREED'] Late 20s, Caucasian. Tootsie is wiry and thin from a diet of drugs that have left her clingy and needy to both illicit substances and interdependent relationships. She may appear reticent and withdrawn in public, but she knows far more about who's who and what's up than you'd think. Underneath, Tootsie is fiercely possessive and will fight you to the death if you cross her...
