First Third Books and HBO Global Licensing are delighted
to announce the publication of a limited edition photo biography
of the acclaimed HBO® series Looking.
Looking revolves around three 30-something friends living
in San Francisco, who explore the exciting, sometimes overwhelming
options available to a new generation of gay men. Working with
the show’s producers, directors and cast First Third has produced
a beautifully bound book documenting certain aspects of the show
over its two seasons, including exclusive behind-the-scenes photos,
interviews, biographies, set drawings and many other unique
insights into the series.
The book also documents the filming of the upcoming finale movie,
which will debut July 23rd. First Third was granted unique access
to the San Francisco set of the finale and chatted with cast and
crew about their thoughts and feelings on a show that has resonated
with people around the world and is surely set to become a classic
portrayal of gay life in the 21st century.
Jonathan Groff « Everyone involved in the show feels so
personally connected to our characters and their relationships
– they are a real extension of ourselves. »
Michael Lannan « We wanted to show emotional
landscapes in great relief, and explore intimate relationships
through all these characters. »
Andrew Haigh « It doesn’t matter if you are gay or straight
– we are all struggling to understand who we are and how
we fit into the world. »
Armistead Maupin « My own delight in Looking was
enhanced by the fact that I live in San Francisco, deep in
the heart of the Castro, so I could recognize the authenticity
in every setting.”
