"We should be careful… everybody lies about something." Showtime has debuted their full official trailer for the LGBTQ series titled Fellow Travelers, adapted from the book of the same name by Thomas Mallon. It's arriving for streaming at the end of October. The mini-series is a decades-long chronicle of the risky, volatile and steamy relationship between the charismatic and ambitious Hawk and the pious and idealistic Tim, two political staffers who fall in love at the height of the 1950s Lavender Scare. This is only the start. After a chance encounter in Washington D.C., Hawkins Fuller & Timothy Laughlin start a volatile romance that spans "the Vietnam War protests of the 1960s, the drug-fueled disco hedonism of the 1970s and the AIDS crisis of the 1980s, while facing obstacles in the world and in themselves." Matt Bomer & Jonathan Bailey co-stars as Hawkins & Timothy, respectively, along with Allison Williams, Jelani Alladin, Noah J. Ricketts, Linus Roache, Will Brill, Chris Bauer, Erin Neufer, and Matt Visser. This looks like a vividly passionate series, with plenty of love and despair on display as it follows them through the decades.

Created by Oscar nominee Ron Nyswaner, based on the novel by Thomas Mallon, Fellow Travelers is an epic love story and political thriller, chronicling the volatile romance of two very different men who meet in McCarthy-era Washington. Matt Bomer plays handsome, charismatic Hawkins Fuller, who maintains a financially rewarding, behind-the scenes career in politics. He avoids emotional entanglements – until he meets Tim Laughlin (Jonathan Bailey), a young man brimming with idealism and religious faith. They begin a romance just as Joseph McCarthy & Roy Cohn declare war on "subversives & sexual deviants," initiating one of the darkest periods in 20th-century American history. Over the course of four decades, we follow our five main characters -- Hawk, Tim, Marcus (Jelani Alladin), Lucy (Allison Williams), Frankie (Noah J. Ricketts) – as they cross paths through the Vietnam War protests of the 1960s, the drug-fueled disco hedonism of the 1970s, and the AIDS crisis of the 1980s, while facing many obstacles in the world…
