HBO: New dramedy series starring Jonathan Groff

HBO has just picked up its new San Francisco based gay dramedy pilot starring GLEE and Broadway hottie Jonathan Groff for a complete season!

Deadline has the details:

HBO has picked up to series the Michael Lannan dramedy pilot executive produced by Andrew Haigh, Sarah Condon and David Marshall Grant,Sarah Condon.

The network has given an eight-episode order to the untitled project, which revolves around three friends in San Francisco (Frankie J. Alvarez, Murray Bartlett, Jonathan Groff), who explore the fun and sometimes overwhelming options available to a new generation of gay men.

Production is expected to start in the fall in San Francisco for a 2014 premiere.

The pickup of the untitled San Francisco project comes as HBO’s latest comedy series,Family Tree, opened to soft numbers on Sunday. HBO also has new comedy Hello Ladies coming up and recently renewed Veep and Girls.

One of the few networks that we faithfully watch in my house, I have great expectations for a gay-centered series from HBO. And I’m betting I won’t be disappointed.

Looking forward to it.
