Web series are fast becoming the platform to view high quality lesbian 'TV' content, and the quantity of what's available is growing as fast as the quality.
From the mainstream Netflix presenting 'Orange is the New Black' to dedicated lesbian content producers Tello, there's something for everyone, that suits every budget and internet connection speed. There's online streaming, on line hire/download, audio/podcast and sizes of files that suit PC, tablet or mobile devices.

Of the series, which looked like it would be a blast to make, actor Lisa Cordileone told us
"The most enjoyable part about working on Easy Abby was realizing how much trust I have in Wendy Jo as a director and being able to just let go. I loved having the opportunity to work with a cast of actors who I respect and are kick ass people who have been patient and dedicated to our project."
