It's an idea so obvious that it's shocking it hasn't been done before--a gay version of "Sex and The City" set in, of course, San Francisco.

The comedic pilot was penned for HBO by Michael Lannan, who previously served as a producer on James Franco's controversial documentary Interior. Leather Bar. and stars Jonathan Groff, best known for playing Jesse St. James in Glee.

According to Mission Local, the show tells the story of three gay friends--an artist, a restaurateur and a web game developer--navigating the perils and pitfalls of life and love in San Francisco's trendy Mission District.

Out.com reports:

Just like its Girls and Sex and the City predecessors, this untitled project features a group of friends as they try to find footing in a concrete jungle. But these boys are a bit older than their Girls counterparts, so here’s to hoping for less woe-is-me angst and more adult-driven trivialities.

Considering the fourth character name from the top of the cast list on the production's IMDB page is "Upscale Hipster," we have a feeling the show might have a good idea of what the life of San Francisco thirty-somethings is basically about.

A crew filming the pilot for the yet untitled HBO show been has been spotted filming in locations across San Francisco, including trendy restaurants like Zuni and Flour + Water, as well as near the Beach Chalet Soccer Fields in Golden Gate Park.
