“The L Word: Generation Q” season 2 won’t be the only lesbian show to binge-watch this year. “Tampa Baes,” a new reality docuseries featuring an all-lesbian cast is scheduled to air this fall on Amazon Prime Video.
“Tampa Baes” will follow a group of lesbian friends living in Tampa Bay, Florida. “Always ready for an adventure or a good party, this group of loyal friends — and sometimes more than friends — is ambitious and unapologetic while constantly battling stereotypes and labels,” the Amazon description of the show reads. “With all eyes on these fun-loving women at this pivotal moment in their personal and professional lives, there’s not a challenge or hot-button issue they won’t tackle, even if it means getting real with one another.”
The cast includes Cuppie Bragg, Marissa Gialousis, Haley Grable, Mack McKenzie, Summer Mitchell, Olivia Mullins, Brianna Murphy, Ali Myers, Shiva Pishdad, Melanie Posner, Nelly Ramirez, and Jordan Whitley.
“The secret is out yall!” wrote Bragg in a post on Twitter. “Super pumped to be part of the all lesbian cast of #TampaBaes airing on @amazonprimevideo this fall!”

The show will be produced by 3 Ball Productions, the company behind the “Biggest Loser,” with Jeff Altrock, Melissa Bidwell, Paul O’Malley, and Ross Weintraub serving as executive producers with Amazon Studios, The Wrap reports.
“Working on this show has been an incredible experience,” said Bidwell, who is also the showrunner, in a statement reported by The Wrap and other media outlets. “And as a member of the LGBTQ+ community, I’m thrilled this type of series can exist in the premium streaming space. The cast is truly dynamic, refreshing, and unlike any I’ve worked with — they certainly won’t disappoint. Viewers everywhere will be able to relate to them in one way or another, and I can’t wait for the world to fall in love with our Tampa Baes.”
The eight-episode season will air this fall on Amazon Prime Video.
