Del Shores' 2001 cult hit film Sordid Lives is moving to the small screen this summer. Sordid Lives: The Series is set to premiere July 23rd on cable channel Logo.

Lives is the outrageous story of the Ingram family – Texas white trash – as they shatter Southern notions of family and unconditional love.

Matriarch Peggy Ingram, her chain-smoking sister Sissy and daughters, Latrelle and LaVonda, are living in Winters, Texas. Latrelle is the good daughter, while LaVonda is the wild child. Peggy's son, “Brother Boy,” who has lived his life dressed-up as Tammy Wynette, is locked up in a mental institution where he “recovers”from a bad case of “homosexualism” and a touch of transvestitism.

Latrelle's son Ty is an actor living in Los Angeles where he is struggling to come out to his Republican Southern Baptist family.

Lives creator Del Shores has written twelve episodes for the first season and will executive produce the series. The series is set as a prequel to the movie – before the death of matriarch Peggy Ingram.

Executive producer Stan Brooks told Variety, “It's Steel Magnolias from the wickedest gay perspective.”

Sordid Lives: The Series features an all-star cast including Grammy Award winner Olivia Newton-John (Grease) reprising her role as town bar singer Bitsy Mae Harling and Emmy Award winner Leslie Jordan (Will & Grace) as “Brother Boy.” Rue McClanahan (Golden Girls) will star as matriarch Peggy Ingram.

First season guest star cameos include Margaret Cho, Candis Cayne, and Carson Kressley as Ty's therapists.

Sordid Lives: The Series is an all-star cast of eccentric characters in a story of unconditional love. Premiering July 23rd on cable channel Logo.
