7 November 2014 4:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Vicious creator Gary Janetti has spoken about the show, saying that it performed better in the Us than in the UK.

The ITV sitcom, starring Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi, is about an old gay couple living in London.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Janetti said that the show "went down better in the Us than in the UK".

He alluded to the idea that McKellen and Jacobi don't have "the same baggage" in the Us as they do in the UK, where they are seen as revered stage actors.

Discussing the upcoming second series of the show, Janetti said filming would begin in London on December 21, in front of a live studio audience.

He added: "We'll be shooting each Sunday there for the next couple of months, with a break for Christmas."

Ian McKellen teases his 'Vicious' chemistry with costar Derek Jacobi, a 'Downton Abbey' audition

29 June 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

Ian McKellen has generally played it serious in the X-Men and Lord of the Rings franchises, but now the five-time Emmy nominee is laughing it upon the small-screen in Gary Janetti’s bitingly funny British import, Vicious (debuting June 29 on PBS) about septuagenarian gay partners Freddie (McKellen) and Stuart (Derek Jacobi). The 75-year-old actor spoke to EW about the series.

Entertainment Weekly: You and Derek Jacobi have known each other for as long as Freddie and Stuart have, though not romantically–

Ian McKellen: Alas!

Did you have to work on your chemistry?

Over the years, Derek and I have »

Writer/Creator Gary Janetti Brings “Vicious” Brit Gay Sitcom Stateside

27 June 2014 8:22 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

The pairing of acting legends Sir Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi is a match made in heaven, but putting them together in a bawdy, bitchy British sitcom playing lovers who have been together for nearly 50 years? Yes, please!

Vicious aired last year in the UK and had its share of fans and critics. American viewers are finally getting a chance to decide for themselves if this show is the gay sitcom that we’ve been waiting for. (One good sign is that Vicious already has a second season order and will start shooting this fall. Hopefully the Us airings will garner solid ratings to continue airing beyond the first season).

TheBacklot sat down recently in West Hollywood with series creator Gary Janetti, who you know as a writer on such comedies as Will & Grace and Family Guy as well as being partnered with celebrity stylist/TV personality, Brad Goreski.  Janetti »

TV Review: ‘Vicious’

27 June 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Two things become immediately clear watching PBS’ Brit-com import “Vicious”: One, the major networks wouldn’t touch it. And two, it’s too bad the show isn’t sharp enough to make them regret that bias. The taboo here isn’t that the main characters played by Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi are gay, it’s that they fall far outside the 18-49 demo. While the material is about as classy as an average Chuck Lorre show, the name and very game cast — especially McKellen — should be a potent draw for PBS’ dedicated Anglophile aud.

Co-created by American TV vet Gary Janetti (“Family Guy,” “Will & Grace”) and British playwright Mark Ravenhill, the shamelessly broad comedy centers around the busy living room of egomaniacal small-time actor Freddie (McKellen) and his partner of nearly 50 years, Stuart (Jacobi, also featured in PBS’ “Last Tango in Halifax”).

27 June 2014 6:55 AM, PDT | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

PBS is getting back into the sitcom business this Sunday with Vicious, a British series starring Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi. The show, which has already been picked up for a second season in the U.K., stars McKellen and Jacobi as an elderly gay couple that have been together for 50 years — and given how much they enjoy hurling insults at each other, it shows. Gary Janetti is the sole writer and executive producer on the show; his past credits include Will & Grace and Family Guy. Janetti filled out our TV Guide Magazine Showrunner Survey to explain why we should get Vicious.
