SHOWS » In the Big House

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.
