Sordid Lives: The Series is the story of a small town Texas family presided over by matriarch Peggy Ingram who takes in the town bar singer Bitsy Mae Harling who has just been released from prison. Peggy's wild child daughter LaVonda lives with Peggy's chain-smoking sister Sissy, while Peggy's good girl Latrelle maintains an image of seeming perfection. Peggy's third child "Brother Boy" Ingram 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 who believes she can dehomosexualize him. LaVonda's white trash best friend Noleta lives in a trailer in Sissy's backyard with her husband G.W., 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 and Odell, Bitsy and this bar's crazy old fly Juanita. Latrelle's son Ty is an actor living in Los Angeles and struggling with several therapists 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.
