Cocktails & Classics Gives Film Geeks a Cinematic Education – with a Twist

Movie geeks, get ready to camp out.

On Sunday, a new series on Logo called Cocktails & Classics brings together the people behind some of the most beloved – and, yes, often over-the-top – films of all time with the entertainment fixtures who have made a career out of obsessing over them.

An exclusive episode from Cocktails' premiere episode, which accompanies 1989's Steel Magnolias, reveals the insider-y, chatty flavor of the series, which host Michael Urie tells PEOPLE is all about digging into "finding out what it is about these films that made them classics."

Unlike many movie companion series, Cocktails & Classics is "not just trivia," says the Ugly Betty alum, who's also an executive producer. "We do a certain amount of re-creating scenes. We definitely incorporate the great zingers that people love and remember. It's something that people who don't know the movies will be delighted to learn from, and people who do know the movies will be delighted to share the things that they already feel and giggle about."

Ferguson also Tweeted: "Historic! #Prop8 is unconstitutional. @AFER & I won’t stop until ALL Americans are #free2marry."
