Rose Troche is perhaps best known as the co-executive producer, writer and director of the Showtime series The L Word.

However, she has also directed episodes of Six Feet Under, Ugly Betty and Law & Order, but first came to prominence in 1994 with her directorial debut Go Fish, which premiered at Sundance.

Troche is now turning her attention to a new venture, and collaborating with Virtual Reality pioneer, Morris May – who was responsible for Specular Theory on ground-breaking films on date rape and police brutality, to make an 8-part ensemble comedy series entitled LGBTQIA.

Casting is underway and she is seeking a partner for what she hopes will be an ongoing series set in a high , which doubles as a community center at night.

The narrative will follow people who turn up to attend LGBTQIA group meetings, which descend into mayhem.

She intends to shoot the first two episodes, each of 8-10 minutes, in late August in time to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival’s New Frontier program.

Talking to Forbes, Troche said

I want to take what works from the old model and explore new ground in how we go through production. I am creating the bible for all eight episodes and there will be a narrative cliffhanger and also a tech cliffhanger at the end of season one, so you can start to be interactive with the promise of what is to come in season two.”
