Gay Comedy Series Starring Ian McKellen To Air On PBS

PBS has given the green light to Vicious, a sitcom focusing on the long-term (like 50 years long-term, which we all know is like 200 years in gay years:) relationship of two gay seniors.

Vicious, which stars out actors Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi, has already been airing in the U.K. since last April and has been renewed for a second season. The show's first season will start airing here on July 6 for six episodes.

Six episodes? Pretty short for a season, but the idea of watching Magneto throwing shade and British queen reads sounds fantastic. Watch a few clips after the jump
