HBO has picked up a new gay-themed dramedy starring Glee's Jonathan Groff, the cable network confirmed Tuesday.
The still-untitled series follows three friends in San Francisco exploring the fun and sometimes overwhelming options available to a new generation of gay men. The first season, consisting of eight episodes, will premiere sometime next year. Bored to Death's Sarah Condon, Brothers & Sisters' David Marshall Grant, and pilot director Andrew Haigh will serve as executive producers. Writer Michael Lannan (Remember Me) will co-executive-produce.
