Sordid Lives: The Series

If you're like me, you really enjoyed watching season 1 of "Sordid Lives: The Series" last summer on Logo, and have been wondering where season 2 is.
Thanks to social networking sites like MySpace and Facebook, I knew that Logo had ordered season 2 and that its creator, Del Shores, had been busy writing it. But that was months ago.

Today I received an update from Del, explaining the situation, which ain't pretty. Here's Del's official statement.

So, it appears we're not going to see season 2 because the production company hasn't paid the writer or actors their residuals.

What a shame!

It would seem that the production company would be in breach of contract, doesn't it? Wouldn't the writer and actors have a clause in their contract requiring payment for their work? I'm sure its more complicated than that.

"Sordid Lives: The Series" was a fun show and I really hope the production company does the right thing and pays the residuals so these folks can be compensated for their work.

Maybe Del can find another production company so the brilliance of Brother Boy can live on!

I'm not such a fan of Sordid Lives. I'm more a fan of Rick & Steve. That show is uproariously funny shit.

I LOVE Sordid Lives! It was one of my favorite movies of all times, and I loved the series, too! That producer is an asshole- someone need to reinforce his brain with lug nuts!

I don't think I'll ever understand you southerners and your love of Sordid Lives...

The movie? Oh yeah, I love it. The series? I only have Logo for two months because of an error at the TV company. And I have yet to see the series.

Haven't seen the series either. :-( Guess I have some catching up to do. :-)
