LOGO'S NEW DOCU-REALITY SERIES "IN THE BIG HOUSE" REUNITES AN OLD-SCHOOL PHILLY MOBSTER WITH HIS ALL-TOO-MODERN FAMILY IN WEST HOLLYWOOD

New Series Premieres Monday, July 23 at 10PM ET/PT on Logo

NEW YORK, NY - June 27, 2012 - Think your family's "whack"? Meet the Verdis from Logo's new docu-reality series, "In the Big House." When Michel Verdi and her husband, Jay, moved from just outside Philly to West Hollywood, they thought they were leaving it all behind - until their entire family followed. Now, Michel and Jay share their home with Michel's mom, Dotsie and ex-con, former Mafioso dad, "Big Lou" who's been in and out of prison for 25 years. Did we mention Michel's parents have been divorced for 25 years, can't stand each other and haven't lived together until now? Rounding out the clan is Michel's out-and-unapologetic gay brother, Louis, who is eager to make it on his own, but unable to leave the family nest as of yet. "In the Big House" documents a new type of modern family, as these over-the-top characters struggle to succeed with humor, heart and a whole lot of drama. Comprised of eight, half-hour episodes, "In the Big House" premieres on Monday, July 23 at 10PM ET/PT on Logo.

Throughout the season, viewers will get to see how this extremely blended family deals with togetherness. Perhaps the most strong-willed family member on "In the Big House" is "Big Lou." No stranger to the "family business," the ex-mobster struggles to adapt to a job with the new family business - the Verdis own one of LA's hot gay bars. Truly a fish out of water, wise-cracking curmudgeon "Big Lou" gives the Verdis lots to think about as he adjusts to life with the gay son he never knew, a wife he hasn't lived with for years and a new city he doesn't understand. As cultures collide, viewers will see that for better or worse, family is a life sentence.

"In the Big House" is executive produced by Jenny Daly (T Group) and Rob Lobl. Brent Zacky and Pamela Post serve as Executive Producers for Logo.
