Is it Girls 2.0? Is it Sex and the City for men?  Jonathan Groff (Boss, Glee) is set to star in HBO’s upcoming dramedy centering on a group of gay men living in San Francisco.

The premium cable network issued an eight-episode order for Andrew Haigh’s (Weekend) series, which is based on Michael Lannan’s original script for Lorimer. The untitled series revolved around three friends in San Francisco who explore the fun and sometimes overwhelming options available to a new generation of gay men. In addition to Jonathan Groff, Guiding Light alum Murray Bartlett (ex-Cyrus) and Frankie J. Alvarez (Smash) also star.

Haigh and Lannan will executive produce the series along with Sarah Condon and David Marshall Grant. Production for the series will begin this fall and will premiere in 2014.

The untitled project is the latest in a line of half-hour comedies picked up by HBO, which recently ordered Getting On and Hello Ladies to series. The network also ordered the James Gandolfini drama Criminal Justice for a seven episode limited-run series.
