new series into development

Network greenlights two sitcoms, a drama, and a reality show

Logo, MTV's gay cable network, announced Wednesday that it has approved four new series for development. The shows are:

The Service: A one-hour drama about queer enlisted men and women on a military base in the South Pacific who fight persecution by their new commanders. Written by Andy Cochran and Daniel Punt, who executive-produce alongside Russell Mulcahy (Highlander, Queer as Folk) and Armand Speca.

Sordid Lives: TheSeries: Based on Del Shores's popular play and movie, the series is a continuing look into the worlds of the denizens of Winters, Texas; of Brother Boy, a Tammy Wynette impersonator who's been institutionalized for being gay; and of young gay Ty Williamson, who has moved to West Hollywood, Calif., to pursue an acting career. Executive-produced by Shores and Funny Boy Films' Kirkland Tibbels (Adam & Steve, Latter Days).

That GayGhost: A conservative family moves to San Francisco, not knowing that their house is already occupied by an outrageous gay ghost living in the closet. From Maverick Television.

Reconnection: Half-hour reality show that allows LGBT participants to confront friends and loved ones who disowned them because of their sexuality. From GRB Entertainment and executive producers Gary Benz, Michael Branton (Intervention, Growing Up Gotti), and Brant Pinvidic (Princes of Malibu).

"These projects represent Logo's commitment to investing in high-quality series," Eileen Opatut, Logo senior vice president for original programming, said in a statement. "We're thrilled to be working with some of the most respected and talented creative people in the industry as well as give voice to new artists who will help expand the horizon for LGBT entertainment."
