Deadline Hollywood on Monday reported that premium cable network HBO is developing a comedy about three African-American brothers, one of whom is gay.

Bros is loosely based on out writer Ben Cory Jones' (Hand of God) real life with his two straight brothers, according to Deadline Hollywood.

A short pilot presentation of the show, originally titled Bros Before Hos, stars Dijon Talton (Glee) as Kendall, Kevin Phillips (Red Tails) as Aidan, and Americo “Tuffy” Questell (How To Make It In America) as Marshall.

In the pilot, Kendall is looking for love, Aidan is trying to move on from his wife and Marshall is resisting falling in love with a white woman.

In an interview with Indiewire, Jones said, “Bros Before Hos isn't a black story or a gay story – it's a story about three bothers, who happen to be black, and one who happens to be gay.”

“It's ironic that in 2014, and even with a black president, one of the hardest things to be in this country right now is a young black man,” he added.
