Bosom Buddies, a drag comedy series starring a young Tom Hanks, will debut today, May 18, on Decades.

The sitcom, which ran originally on ABC for 37 episodes over two seasons (1980-1982), will air weekdays at 4:30 pm ET.

Hanks and Peter Scolari star as co-workers in a big city who can only find an affordable apartment in a female-only building. So Kip and Henry become Buffy and Hildegard.

Bosom Buddies also stars Donna Dixon, Wendie Jo Sperber and Telma Hopkins as neighbors, and Holland Taylor as Kip and Henry’s ad agency boss.

The series is not on any streaming service, although you can find episodes on Dailymotion.
