Now you can own every laugh-filled episode of “Sordid Lives: The Series” in all of its uncensored glory! The series (12 episodes total) originally aired on the Logo Channel, but was frequently “toned down” so as not to offend any gay viewers (??!!). This version (available on DVD and Blu-Ray) includes a little more nudity, a few more “cuss words”, and a whole lot more bawdiness!!!
Chronologically starting a few weeks before the original “Sordid Lives” film begins, this hysterical series has all your favorite characters (and actors!) back in action… plus a whole lotta new surprises! Dead goats, “fat-ass” Baptist protestors, adulterous amputees, fixed Willie Nelson contests, blackmailing drag queens, “pill-popping bitches”, ticked-off hairstylists, shaved hoo ha’s, naked boys singing, and the ghost of Tammy Wynette! Yes, you have officially entered the world of Del Shores!

Sordid Lives: The Series (created by Del Shores) is the story of a small town Texas family presided over by matriarch Peggy Ingram (Rue McClanahan) who takes in the town bar-singer Bitsy Mae Harling (Olivia Newton-John) who has just been released from prison.
Peggy’s wild child daughter LaVonda (Ann Walker) lives with Peggy’s chain-smoking sister Sissy (Beth Grant), while Peggy’s good girl Latrelle (Bonnie Bedelia) maintains an image of seeming perfection. Peggy’s third child “Brother Boy” Ingram (Leslie Jordan) is locked in a mental institution where he performs as Tammy Wynette. He plots to escape while he attends therapy sessions with the crazy Dr. Eve (Rosemary Alexander) who believes she can dehomosexualize him.
LaVonda’s white trash best friend Noleta (Caroline Rhea) lives in a trailer in Sissy’s backyard with her husband G.W. (David Steen), a Vietnam vet with two wooden legs. G.W. escapes regularly to the local bar in town amidst a small crowd of regulars including brothers Wardell (Newell Alexander) and Odell (David Cowgill), Bitsy and this bar’s crazy old fly Juanita (Sarah Hunley).
Latrelle’s son Ty (Jason Dottley) is an actor living in Los Angeles and struggling with several therapists (Margaret Cho, Carson Kressley, Candis Cayne) to come to terms with his homosexuality. Along the way he deals with his first boyfriend, his stalker ex-girlfriend, a vengeful trick and the difficulty of coming out to his straight best friend and his family back in Texas.
“Sordid Lives: The Series” is the universally relatable story of a town of family and friends ,and the trials and tribulations they go through as they learn to see each other for who they are instead of who they wish each other to be.
