Synopsis:

In the second season, Looking continues to offer up the unfiltered experiences of three close friends – Patrick, Agustín and Dom – living, and loving, in modern-day San Francisco. Patrick (Jonathan Groff) finds himself getting what he thinks he wants only to realize it’s not actually what he needs. He and his boss Kevin (Russell Tovey), begin a messy affair, while Patrick also tries to figure out if he and Richie (Raúl Castillo) can still be friends. Agustín (Frankie J. Alvarez), floundering after his breakup at the end of last season, decides to leave his art aspirations behind while striking up a friendship with a charming “bear” named Eddie (guest star Daniel Franzese). Dom (Murray Bartlett) continues his dream to open a restaurant, but faces many ups and downs in securing financing – and in his relationship with Lynn (guest star Scott Bakula).

With naturalism and humor, Looking continues to explore the search for happiness and intimacy in an age of unparalleled choices – and rights – for gay men, with the progressive, sexually open culture of San Francisco serving as a backdrop for the trio’s lives.

Starring Jonathan Groff (The Normal Heart, Frozen), Frankie J. Alvarez (Smash), and Murray Bartlett (August) and returning as series regulars are Lauren Weedman (Date Night), and Russell Tovey (The History Boys).

Guest stars include Daniel Franzese (Mean Girls) and Scott Bakula (Quantum Leap)

Saugatuck Cures is a family comedy set in picturesque Saugatuck, Michigan. There we meet Maggie Callaghan (Judith Chapman, The Young and the Restless), a widowed bed-and-breakfast owner, who’s secretly dealing with a second round of cancer. Maggie’s well-meaning, meddlesome friends let the truth slip when her rivaling children visit for Thanksgiving. Maggie’s openly gay son, Drew (Max Adler of GLEE), and affluent, religious daughter, Penelope, have yet another falling out over their mother’s inability to pay for a new, experimental treatment.

Determined, but with no idea how to raise the money his mother needs, Drew follows the harebrained advice of his loyal, screwball best friend Brett (Danny Mooney, The Ides of March). The two embark on a road trip, traveling from town to town and church to church posing as ex-gay ministers “curing” homosexuals of their “affliction” and dodging trouble along the way. Will this duo’s hilariously misguided plan be able to save Maggie?
