Pam Grier stars as Kit Porter on Showtime's "The L Word."

Pam Grier achieved fame in the early 1970s when she starred in a series of films, including "Coffy," "Foxy Brown," and "Sheba, Baby." In the 1990s, she made an impact as the title character in "Jackie Brown," and was honored with Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild, and NAACP award nominations.

With more than 100 screen credits to her name, Grier is the consummate "working actor." She has a body of work that spans over thirty-five years—an accomplishment that has earned her the praise and respect of peers and fans alike. Her other feature film credits include two films for director John Carpenter "Escape From L.A." and "Ghosts of Mars;" Jane Campion's "Holy Smoke," Tim Burton's "Mars Attacks!," "In Too Deep," "Jawbreaker," "Fort Apache the Bronx," "Posse," "Love The Hard Way," and "The Adventures of Pluto Max."

Her extensive television work includes "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air," "In Living Color," "Night Court," "The Cosby Show," "Miami Vice," "Roots: The Next Generations," "Mad TV," "Midnight Caller," "Law & Order: SVU," "Night Visions," "Earthlings," "First To Die" and, most recently, "The Ladies of The House" for the Hallmark Channel.

Grier's much anticipated autobiography is published by Grand Central Publishing (a division of Hachette Book Group USA) and will hit bookstores in the spring of 2010.
