The surgeons of the outrageous medical drama “Nip/Tuck” are checking into Logo.

The gay-oriented cable network announced Thursday that they had acquired syndication rights for “Nip/Tuck” and will start broadcasting episodes this October. The series stars Dylan Walsh and Julian McMahon and was created by Ryan Murphy, the creator of Fox’s hit “Glee.”

Installments for the drama, which originally aired on FX, will air in three-episode stacks on one night during prime time, with a new stack each week. All 100 episodes of the series, which ran for seven seasons before concluding this year, will be shown.

“The celebrity guests, moments of jaw-dropping outrageousness and honest depiction of its gay characters and their friends made the series a perfect fit for our audience,” said Marc Leonard, Logo’s senior vice president of multiplatform programming, “At the end of the day, we see it as a love story between two straight guys who are challenged by the family that they’ve created -- and that’s pretty fierce.”
