HBO shooting new series partially in the Mission

The Untitled Michael Lannan Comedy, as it’s currently known, centers around “three thirty-something friends living in San Francisco who grapple with all the options in contemporary life and the complexities of the modern gay experience”, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The show’s adapted from a comedic feature script by Lannan called Lorimer. It will star Jonothan Groff, from Glee, who also is apparently dating Zachary Quinto. So . . . there’s your Hollywood gossip.

Anyway, it sounds like they’ll be shooting sometime soon around the neighborhood, possibly at bars like El Rio and Esta Noche. So far HBO has only greenlit the pilot, but just in case it gets picked up I’m thinking about taglines for them.

Going off of the little info I have:

Sex and the City by the Bay

A Story of the Modern Millennial Milieu

Out and About some Boys

Gay Bay Today, Bab-ay

Anyone else?

UPDATE: Casting info includes a “Dancing Bear” stripper and a good looking gay couple with a mixed-race child to hang out in “the park”, which could be Dolores, but I guess people still hang out in other parks . . . ?

    Can’t it just be called GAYS?

  13. Whose Urban Now? says:

    God we have gone to all this trouble to get rid of our SF gay image and now this and least its about about that .5% of queens that have kids – Can’t Scott Wiener ban this …maybe we could have a show about up-tight white parents who buy 14 peanut butter drive Audis and pretend to be liberal and call it like The New Frisco, OK?

    • MrEricSir says:

      Why would we want to get rid of the gay image? Whether you’re gay or not, it helps you by keeping the wrong people away.

    • Tenara says:

      Punctuation should be your friend. Otherwise, you’re talking about peanut butter drive Audis. It’s a great idea to have a car that is fueled by peanut butter, but we aren’t there yet.

    Maybe Lou Seal could play the “Dancing Bear” stripper?
