Preview images for Paramount+’s upcoming gay romantic series with Showtime titled ‘Fellow Travelers’ have arrived!
Showtime posted the first look of Matt Bomer and Jonathan Bailey in their autumn series. “A secret romance spanning decades that could unravel everything,” Showtime described. In the photos, Bomer and Bailey share some intimate (and even sexy) moments together.
‘Fellow Travelers’ is based on the 2007 novel of the same name by Thomas Mallon. It tells the story of Hawkins Fuller (to be played by Bomer) who for the longest time has avoided romance until he meets Tim Laughlin (to be played by Bailey). They fall in love and begin an affair just as Joseph McCarthy and Roy Cohn declare war on “subversives and sexual deviants.” Their story will span decades, from the Vietnam War protests to the hedonistic culture of the 1970s and the AIDS crisis of the 1980s.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, Bailey said that it’s a story he has wanted to do a “sweeping gay love story, but my experience actually was that I’d never really seen them. Or if I had, I hadn’t seen actors like me and Matt play those roles.”
Now, the question is: How intimate will Bailey and Bomer be in the show? Well, pretty intimate. In fact, they have sex scenes!
