Deep down, aren't we all just a bunch of fools looking to connect with someone? This is the type of question HBO's upcoming gay drama/comedy 'Looking' attempts to...well...look into.
The network has debuted a brand new 30-second trailer, which features Patrick (Jonathan Groff) questioning why it's so wrong for young people to have a life outside of work. "This is San Francisco; that's why I live here. If I didn't want to have a life, I'd move to L.A," Patrick remarks candidly. Touche!
Figuring out how to balance work and a social life is something practically every young adult struggles to understand. So where does one even begin? Well, for Patrick, it involves finding a new roommate (OkCupid is where you go to search for roommates, right?) as he attempts to make his mark in the Bay area.
The clip also introduces other interesting storylines and conflicts, including a man going through somewhat of a mid-life crisis at 40, the ups and downs of open relationships, and just the general premise of wanting to find "someone who understands you." But as we (and Patrick) both know, sometimes life just isn't that simple.
Groff is best known for his time on 'Glee' as Jesse St. James as well as his starring role in 'C.O.G.' The cast also includes Frankie Alvarez and Murray Bartlett.
Check out the trailer below and see if 'Looking' is a show you'll want to start looking into. (Sorry, I couldn't resist.) Enjoy!
'Looking' premieres Jan. 19 at 10:30/9:30c on HBO.
