In the eight-part series, out actor

According to Deadline, the show
follows Michael, “who thought his life was perfect until his

Overnight, Michael has to confront two nightmares – losing what he
thought was his soulmate and suddenly finding himself a single gay
man in his mid-40s in New York City.”

and being offered a “pity” threesome.
