Showtime Sets Premieres for January 18th

January 18th will be a ladies' night for Showtime as they announced today that The L Word and Secret Diary of a Call Girl will be returning and that new series The United States of Tara will be premiering.

The L Word will kick off the lineup at 9, followed by Tara at 10, which is a new 30 minute series starring Toni Collete and John Corbett (Sex and the City). Collete plays a mother with a dissociative identity disorder (re: multiple personalities). Call Girl will finish out the evening at 10:30.

Looks like a strong, lady-centric evening for Showtime! Who's excited?

The show hasn't even aired yet - it starts Jan 2009. Why not postpone judgment until you actually SEE what it is about? It is described as a drama, not a comedy. I am a psychotherapist and will be anxious to see what angle they take on this disorder. It could prove to be very educational for the general population and compassionate toward those who have suffered. They can't possibly represent every single person's experience with trauma, but let's keep positive and hope it will be a "good" thing rather than an exploitative or sensationalistic one.

My post above was in response to a post on the United States of Tara show site - don't know why it ended up here as well.
