HBO has greenlighted a documentary about a gay and lesbian family vacation cruise, the network announced Thursday. The project is co-produced by Rosie O’Donnell. The currently untitled project features 500 families-including Ms. O’Donnell’s-on a cruise liner to the Bahamas. The documentary will debut on HBO in 2005.

“It was an amazing week,” Ms. O’Donnell said in a statement. “In seven days, 1,600 people became a community. We are thrilled to partner with HBO, one of the leaders of innovative programming, on this exciting project.”

Ms. O’Donnell’s HBO credits include the special “Rosie O’Donnell’s Kids Are Punny” and an “HBO Comedy Hour” standup special.
