Netflix has dropped the first images and teaser trailer of Neil Patrick Harris in his new, gay-themed comedy series.

As previously reported on Queerty, the Netflix show is about a gay man who thought he had a near-perfect life … until he gets dumped by his long-term partner and finds himself having to navigate single life in New York in his mid-40s.
