Ricketts (American Gods).
“The series is an epic love story and political thriller that follows the secret romance of two very different men who meet in McCarthy-era Washington,” reads the synopsis. “They begin a romance just as Joseph McCarthy and Roy Cohn are declaring war on ‘subversives and sexual deviants,’ ushering in one of the darkest periods in 20th-century American history. Over the course of four decades, we follow our five main characters – Hawk, Tim, Marcus (Alladin), Lucy (Williams) and Frankie (Ricketts) – as their paths cross through the 1960s Vietnam War protests, drugs and drug-related crimes. fueled the disco hedonism of the 1970s and the AIDS crisis of the 1980s, all while confronting obstacles in the world and within themselves.”
Fellow Travelers are executive produced by Bomer, Nyswaner, Robbie Rogers, Dee Johnson and Daniel Minahan, with the latter also directing the first two episodes. It comes from Fremantle and Showtime.
