Slap on those fishnets and touch up that eye makeup, because “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” is jumping onto the small screen once more. And in the upcoming episode of Logo’s “Cocktails & Classics,” host Michael Urie will dish exclusive details and never-before-shared stories on the making of the cult classic.

In a new clip, Urie interviews Barry Bostwick (who starred as Brad Majors in the 1976 film) on the film’s legacy. When asked why the film has endured over the years, Bostwick describes its eccentric blend of genres as essential to its impact.

“Every kid who is discovering who they are, what they want to do, what they want to be, whether its what they want to be sexually, what they want to be socially will go,” says Bostwick, “and this will be their rite of passage.”

“Cocktails & Classics: The Rocky Horror Picture Show” airs this Sunday at 8/7c on Logo. Watch the exclusive clip below.
