The latest series to join the premium cable set list is going gay, according to The Hollywood Reporter. In addition to People in New Jersey and Hello Ladies, HBO is picking up a pilot that follows three thirtysomething gay men as they live and love life in good ol’ San Francisco. The pilot is written by Michael Lannan (Remember Me) and directed by Andrew Haigh. Its producers are Brothers and Sisters’ showrunner David Marshall Grant and Bored to Death’s Sarah Condon.
Just like its Girls and Sex and the City predecessors, this untitled project features a group of friends as they try to find footing in a concrete jungle. But these boys are a bit older than their Girls counterparts, so here’s to hoping for less woe-is-me angst and more adult-driven trivialities. Grant’s resume also includes the beloved landmark series thirysomething and he has most recently worked on NBC’s Smash and ABC’s Nashville—all signs point to the project being in good hands.
