(from PBS's press release, May 2015) Partners Freddie (Ian McKellen) and Stuart (Derek Jacobi) have lived together in a small central London flat for nearly 50 years. Constantly picking each other apart and holding on to petty slights for decades, Freddie and Stuart are always at each other's throats, making snide remarks aimed at the other's age, appearance and flaws. However, underneath their vicious, co-dependent fighting, they share a deep love. Freddie and Stuart are joined by feisty best friend Violet (Frances de la Tour), and their young neighbor Ash (Iwan Rheon). -- Sundays, August 23-September 27, 10:30-11:00 p.m. ET
