Fellow Travelers is a series created by American writer Ron Nyswaner, based on the novel by Thomas Mallon. It 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…
