Series Summary
Three best friends living in San Francisco share the nuances and complexities of contemporary gay relationships as they explore a variety of options, both in love and in life. They are unified by their close bond, but their search for happiness and intimacy has taken them on separate paths. Patrick is a 29-year-old video game designer who is dating again after his ex's engagement; Agustin, 31, is apprehensive about choosing monogamy and domesticity instead of the excitement of city life; and longtime waiter Dom is at a crossroads, as middle age approaches and his romantic and professional goals remain unfulfilled. The trio's lives unfold against the backdrop of San Francisco's progressive, unpredictable, almost-anything-goes culture, and "Looking" makes full use of the city's unique character -- with filming taking place in more than 40 locations and in various neighborhoods throughout the Bay Area.
