Created by Michael Lannan, directed by Andrew Haigh (“Weekend”) and starring Jonathan Groff, Frankie J. Alvarez and Murray Bartlett as a trio of friends, the San Francisco-set comedy drama "Looking" seems poised to be a gay, West Coast-centric answer to "Girls." HBO's even pairing the new series, which premieres Sunday, January 19th at 10:30pm, with the returning Lena Dunham hit. The network's just released its first teaser for "Looking," and what's most noteworthy about the short promo is how much it deliberately recalls the trailer for Travis Mathews' 2012 festival favorite "I Want Your Love," which was also about a group of gay male friends in San Francisco, and which included real sex with its scripted drama. It's likely not a coincidence -- Lannan was an assistant director on "I Want Your Love." Take a look at both videos below:
