Jonathan Groff, Frankie J. Alvarez and
Murray Bartlett, the stars of the upcoming HBO drama 'Looking,'
discuss the show from its set in a just released clip.
“Looking is about a group of
gay friends living in modern day San Francisco, looking to connect,
looking for love and living their lives,” Groff (Glee, Boss)
says in the 90-second video.
“And not only are we exploring issues
with love, but also within our careers and self motivation issues,”
Frankie J. Alvarez (Smash) says.
“It sets up the three of us as
friends, but then we each have our individual story lines,” adds
Murray Bartlett (Guiding Light).
Creator and co-executive producer
Michael Lannan says he wanted the show to “feel like we're just
dropping in on the lives of these characters in progress.”
Looking director and
co-executive producer Andrew Haigh (Weekend) adds: “It's
about their friendships, their relationships, their work life. It's
kind of embracing all the elements of their life.” (The video is

Looking premieres on HBO January 19.
Groff says Looking
sex scenes “display reality of gay sex.”)
