Looking Season 1 Episode 7 “Looking for a Plus-One” airs Sunday March 2 (9:30-10:00 p.m.) on HBO.

Episode Synopsis: Looking Season 1 Episode 7 “Looking for a Plus-One” – Already stressed that his parents will judge his choice of a partner in Richie (Raul Castillo), Patrick (Jonathan Groff) reaches new levels of anxiety before his sister’s wedding, and runs into an unexpected guest when he arrives. Still unsure whether to pursue a business or personal relationship, Dom (Murray Bartlett) rebuffs Lynn’s (Scott Bakula) advice while in the throes of preparing for his restaurant popup. Unhappy with his photos of Frank (O-T Fagbenle) and CJ (TJ Linnard), Agustín (Frankie J. Alvarez) drops out of the art show, leaving Frank fuming.

Show Summary: ‘Looking’ offers up the unfiltered experiences of three close friends living — and loving — in modern-day San Francisco. Friendship may bind them, but each is at a markedly different point in his journey: Patrick (Jonathan Groff) is the 29-year-old video game designer getting back into the dating world in the wake of his ex’s engagement; aspiring artist Agustín (Frankie J. Alvarez), 31, is questioning the idea of monogamy amid a move to domesticate with his boyfriend; and the group’s oldest member — longtime waiter Dom (Murray Bartlett), 39 — is facing middle age with romantic and professional dreams still unfulfilled.

The trio’s stories intertwine and unspool dramatically as they search for happiness and intimacy in an age of unparalleled choices — and rights — for gay men. Also important to the ‘Looking’ mix is the progressive, unpredictable, sexually open culture of the Bay Area, with real San Francisco locations serving as a backdrop for the group’s lives. Rounding out the ‘Looking’ world are a bevy of dynamic gay men including Kevin (Russell Tovey), Lynn (Scott Bakula), and Richie (Raul Castillo), as well as a wide-range of supporting characters like Dom’s roommate Doris (Lauren Weedman), Agustín’s boyfriend Frank (O.T. Fagbenle), and Patrick’s co-worker Owen (Andrew Law).

‘Looking’ was created by Michael Lannan and is executive produced by Sarah Condon (‘Bored to Death’) and Andrew Haigh, who wrote and directed the critically-lauded ‘Weekend.’
