HBO Gay-Themed Jonathan Groff Dramedy ‘Looking’ Releases First Trailer

Where HBO’s ‘Girls‘ tends to cater to a very specific crowd on the East Coast, 2014′s upcoming Jonathan Groff dramedy ‘Looking‘ will literally, and figuratively swing the other way to explore the modern gay lifestyle in San Francisco. The first trailer for the Andrew Haigh-created drama has arrived, so take a look!

‘Looking’ follows three San Francisco friends who explore the “fun and sometimes overwhelming options available to a new generation of gay men,” and stars ‘Glee‘s’ Jonathan Groff, Frankie J. Alvarez and Murray Bartlett. Early guest stars include Russell Tovey (‘Sherlock‘) and Scott Bakula (‘Behind the Candelabra,’ ‘Star Trek: Enterprise‘).

As for the frequent ‘Girls’ comparisons, Groff told ET months ago that “I think the thing we have in common with ‘Girls’ is that there’s a realistic quality to the show and how it depicts relationships. But it’s not a snappy comedy; it’s much more of a slow burn. Tonally it’s more similar to Andrew Haigh’s film ‘Weekend.’”

The new series will premiere a week behind the ‘Girls’ season 3 debut, airing in the 9:30 P.M. slot on Sunday, January 19. Check out the full trailer above, and tell us in the comments if you’ll go ‘Looking’ next year!
