Newly minted Paramount + with Showtime has released first images from their period set mini series FELLOW TRAVELERS which will arrive to the small screens this Autumn starring Matt Bomer and Jonathan Bailey as a gay couple.

Bailey is Tim Laughlin, a young and optimistic graduate looking for a job in Washington DC’s elite, and Matt is Hawkins Fuller, a political staffer in the adaptation of Thomas Mallon’s novel of the same name.
IN THE EIGHT PART SERIES
They forge a decades-spanning relationship against a backdrop of McCarthyism, the Vietnam War and the AIDS crisis, from the 1950s all the way to the 80s. The series sees Hawkins get Laughlin a job working for Senator Joe McCarthy. The Senator led the Lavender (and Red) Scare, which saw people ejected from government positions for even the slightest hint of being homosexual. Hawkins asks Laughlin to spy on McCarthy (Chris Bauer) which adds a transactional quality to the pair’s relationship.
