Do you have any idea what it’s like to be single again for a gay man at my age?
Gay, middle-aged, and in the middle of a breakup. How do you find a new love when all you’ve ever known was your love for 17 years?
In Uncoupled (2022, Jeffrey Richman and Darren Star), forty-something Michael Lawson (played by actor Neil Patrick Harris) seemed to have it all: a stable relationship with his boyfriend of 17 years, not to mention a successful career as a New York real estate agent. But then, on the eve of his boyfriend Colin’s (played by actor Tuc Watkins) birthday, he got dumped unceremoniously without so much as a goodbye. Colin simply told him, “I took my clothes and some things and I moved out.”
After being in a relationship with someone for too long, Michael is at a loss now that he’s single again, he didn’t know what to do. But thank goodness for friends who got Michael’s back. He’s suddenly back to the dating game in no time. He goes out with friends, whether to eat or go clubbing, sleeps with other guys, goes skiing with them, gets an offer for a threesome, and even takes dick pics?
I loved the trailer of this series and I’m looking forward to watching it. It’s reportedly created by Darren Starr (Sex and the City, Younger) and Jeffrey Richmond (Modern Family, Frasier). And of course, there’s Neil Patrick Harris whom I adore. He’s best known for his roles in Doogie Howser, M.D. (TV Series, 1989-1993), How I Met Your Mother (2005-2014), Gone Girl (2014), and The Matrix Resurrections (2021) to name a few.
Uncoupled also stars Emerson Brooks, Tisha Campbell, and Marcia Gay Harden among many others. You can watch the series on Netflix starting July 29, 2022. Meanwhile, you can check out its trailer below:
