'Girls' catches a wave on Logo


Logo has greenlighted "Curl Girls," a six-part unscripted series about a group of lesbian friends.

Viacom's gay-themed network has targeted "Girls," which is in production, to premiere in the summer. Set in Southern California, it follows six women who create a surfing competition.

"Surfing is a way of life for the six strong, charismatic women from Southern California profiled in Logo's latest series," said Brian Graden, president of entertainment at MTV Networks Music Group and president of Logo. "Their friendships are strong, no doubt, but they thrive on competition, and that makes for some interesting television."

The series also will spawn digital components that will exist on LogoOnline.com and AfterEllen.com.

Executive producers of "Girls" are Scott Stone, Lori Kaye and Leslie Thomas of Stone & Co. Entertainment.

The concept of "Girls" emerged from a 2005 documentary on the surfing competition that appeared on Logo.
