Del Shores stand-up released to home video

Philadelphia, PA — reaking Glass Pictures has announced the upcoming release of the hilariously true-"ish" to life stand up Del Shores: My Sordid Life.  The DVD features the famed "Sordid Lives" creator sharing the real-life stories that have inspired his writing, and—as fans of Shores will likely attest—the result stands to be side-splitting hilarity. 
Shores is best known for his cult classic film Sordid Lives which originated on the stage at Theatre/Theater's 64-seat house in Hollywood.  In 2008, the play-turned-film was adapted and directed by Shores for the small screen and premiered to rave reviews on MTV/LOGO, becoming their biggest hit to date. The series is currently syndicated internationally in over a dozen countries. 

Other plays by Shores include his GLAAD award-winning "Southern Baptist Sissies;" the Ovation and Los Angeles Drama Critic's Circle award-winning "The Trials and Tribulations of a Trailer Trash Housewife" which Shores' just adapted and directed for the big screen for a 2012 summer release starring the play's original cast Beth Grant, Oscar winner Octavia Spencer, Dale Dickey, David Steen and Debby Holiday.

As of press time, the Del Shores: My Sordid Life trailer is posted to
