Looking is HBO’s new, highly anticipated half-hour series that follows three gay men as they navigate their way through life, love, and friendship. Set  in the tech-driven post modern hippie vibe of San Francisco Looking aims to break the mold of stereotypes supported by other narratives presented on television. Thus far, comparisons have been made to hits such as Girls, Sex and the City, and Queer as Folk but we are rooting for Looking to take it to a whole other level.

With the climate of equality in a progressive swing forward, it’s time to shed some truthful light on what it means to be gay and living in modern day America.  In the past gay narratives have often consisted of disco floor shenanigans, drug use, sex, and hospital beds, but Looking proposes to explore a more dimensional perspective, touching upon topics like marriage, careers, dating, and regret.

Looking is created and written by Michael Lannan and co-executive produced by Andrew Haigh and Sarah Condon. The show stars Jonathan Groff, Frankie J. Alvarez, and Murray Bartlett. Tune in for the series premiere Sunday Jan. 19th at 10:30pm on HBO.
