There’s a lot of interest in HBO’s new gay-themed series Looking, which starts in the US on January 19th (and hopefully on Jan 27th in the UK). However while we’ve known it’s about a group of gay friends in San Francisco, who are these people and why should we care about getting to know them?
Now a new vid is hoping to answer that question, with main actors Jonathan Groff, Murray Bartlett and Frankie J. Alvarez, as well as creator Michael Lannan and writer/director Andrew Haigh (who’s best know the gay hit Weekend), talking about the show and the characters.
They certainly do a good job of suggesting this is more than just being a ‘gay show’, with potentially interesting characters going through experiences many of us can relate to. Take a look above.
