Ian Gay

Fabulous news: British television network ITV has commissed a sitcom starring Sir Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi -- both openly gay -- in which they'll play a couple living together in Covent Garden. And even better: It's gonna be called "Vicious Old Queens." There's going to be six 30 minute episodes to start airing next April.

Hopefully this can replace the hole in my television heart that the mostly shitty new episodes of "Ab Fab" left, and show American television how a so-called "gay sitcom" is really done (cough, "The New Normal," "Partners," "Modern Family," cough).

And please god let a sister sitcom called "Crazy Old Dykes" starring Judi Dench and Maggie Smith result from its success.
