MavrixOnline – We’re talking about the ensemble cast of a cable drama series, a series that the network loved right away. It was picked up for a second season, but it doesn’t look like Season 2 will ever be shown (despite already having been written). Why? Because of some BS with the production company.
So, it looks like the 12 episodes are all anyone is going to get (for now, at least). And those 12 episodes have run at least 300 times in the US, not to mention the handful of other countries that are currently running the series. With all of those episodes running all over the place, you’d think that the stars, writers and director would be swimming in royalty checks. Sadly, that isn’t the case. As a result, at least one of the major stars of the show is having his house foreclosed on.
The guy(s) in question had to rely on family and friends (of Dorothy?) to help them through troubling times.
Sordid Lives: The Series, Jason Dottley and Del Shores
Congrats to Steven and Lou for being the first with correct guesses! Thanks to Sam and PK for filling in the details!
Well, it looks like my first blind item was a success — we got more comments on that post than any other in the history of MavrixOnline, and Blind Gossip picked up the story! Guess we’ll keep ‘em coming, huh?
As most of you guessed, the series in question is Sordid Lives: The Series. The couple affected by the shady dealings of the production company (Once Upon A Time Films) are none other than Jason Dottley and Del Shores, two very talented (and, ahem, good looking) people who deserve to have millions in the bank…so, what’s up, LOGO? How’re you going to let my boys go broke like that?One of my favorite comments came from a guy named Thom, who called everyone to action by saying:
Listed Below Are The E-Mail Addresses For The People Responsible For Not Having Another Season Of “SORDID LIVES THE SERIES” Please Send E-Mails To The Following People Telling Them How You Feel About “Sordid Lives The Series” —And Let Them Know That You Will Be Canceling LOGO If They Don’t Air Season Two Of Sordid! email@example.com The General Manager Brian.Graden@mtvstaff.com The President Of MTV/LOGO The Following E-Mail Address Is The PRODUCER Who Is NOT Paying ANYONE Residuals! Please E-Mail Him And Let Him Know Exactly What You Think Of Him And The Way He Is Treating The Entire Cast And Writer/Director Of “SORDID”! His Name is Stan! firstname.lastname@example.org
So, there you have it. But don’t fret too much, Sordid fans: I have it on good authority that Del Shores is taking his show on the road, and is selling out places left and right! And of course, Jason Dottley isn’t one to let something as trivial as a major TV network get him down: he’s using his time off to jump start his singing career! Jason’s got a new single out, called Hit Play (Take Me Away).It’s getting major play everywhere (I’ll stay classy and refrain from making a dirty comment), and you can check it (and him) out for yourself — he’ll be performing at the Bar on Church in San Francisco this weekend. If you’re not near the gay bay, you can hear the song at Jason’s website. Love it!
