Twin gay pop/rock star Jehovah’s Witness Montana-raised brothers will star in new Logo series

Logo will air a series this fall that “follows musicians (and twin brothers) Jacob and Joshua Miller of the pop/rock group Nemesis,” according to Broadcasting & Cable.

But Jacob & Joshua: Nemesis Rising has even more drama in its premise: the brothers are gay and were “raised as Jehovah’s Witnesses,” and now they live together with Jacob’s boyfriend in one apartment.

In addition, they “have to deal with whether or not to come out to their religious family” and “face the issue of being marketed as openly gay musicians,” according to Logo blog New Now Next.

The show debuts Oct. 16 at 10 p.m. ET.
