About Fellow Travelers TV Show
Based on Thomas Mallon's novel, FELLOW TRAVELERS, created by acclaimed filmmaker Ron Nyswaner, takes us on an extraordinary journey through an epic love story and political thriller. Set during the McCarthy era in Washington, the series explores the clandestine romance between two contrasting men. Matt Bomer portrays the charismatic Hawkins Fuller, an influential political player, while Jonathan Bailey embodies Tim Laughlin, a young man driven by idealism and faith. As Joseph McCarthy and Roy Cohn intensify their crusade against perceived threats, the characters navigate the challenges of a dark period in American history. Spanning four decades, the series delves into the lives of our main characters, including Marcus, Lucy, and Frankie, as they encounter the Vietnam War protests, the hedonism of the disco era, and the devastating AIDS crisis. FELLOW TRAVELERS not only captures their personal struggles but also reflects the broader obstacles they face in an ever-changing world.Keep track of the cancel/renew status of all your favorite shows.
