Sneak Peek Of Ian McKellen & Derek Jacobi In VICIOUS
Theatrical legends Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Derek Jacobi team up for the new ITV UK TV series VICIOUS and the first stills from show have finally leaked, also showcasing featured player Frances De La Tour.
On the comedy series, McKellen and Jacobi portray longtime lovers arriving upon their silver anniversary and largely concerns their day-to-day existences living in Covent Garden, with their best friend, portrayed by De La Tour, figuring into the drama and comedy of the series, as does their comely upstairs neighbor (played by Iwan Rheon) and various other characters.
VICIOUS was co-created by Gary Janetti, of Family Guy and WILL & GRACE fame, and Olivier Award-winning playwright Mark Ravenhill.
Keeping with the inherently and outwardly theatrical nature of the cast and creative team, the show is filmed before a live studio audience.
VICIOUS premieres on ITV later this year. No date has yet been officially set.
