Are we going to love “Looking,” HBO’s upcoming gay-focused series? It’s still too early to tell, but the cable network is doing what they can to drum up some early buzz by inviting gay bloggers to check out the set.
Our pal Mike from Accidental Bear dropped by recently to snap some shots and schmooze with the cast and crew. What did he discover? Well, apparently the place is crawling with homosexuals.
Other than that, we’re pretty light on spoilers. The show features Frankie J. Alvarez, Murray Bartlett, Russell Tovey and Jonathan Groff. Scott Bakula has a recurring role, presumably as a visitor from the future.
Additional cast members all have names that look like anagrams, and include O.T. Fagbenle (elegant fob), Lauren Weedman (anal weened rum), and Ptolemy Slocum (comely slut mop).
We do not know who any of these people are, but we look forward to saying “we were talking about Ptolemy Slocum before he was a household name.”
The marketing department’s also revving up the social media engine, with a genuinely adorable Instagram account, Facebooks and Twitters, Storify, and it’s only a matter of time before they’re on Keeblet.
“Looking” will premiere January 19, and can be watched on any of the major torrenting sites, and probably also on television, whatever that is. See a few photos below and click over to Accidental Bear for the full report.
