Hunting Season

Current Status

It was bound to happen sooner or later: An update of Sex and the City that delves into the sexual exploits of gay New Yorkers. The new web series Hunting Season features a group of friends, many of whom are gay, as they navigate their love and sex lives in New York City. It’s based on the blog “The Great Cock Hunt,” which from 2005 to 2008 chronicled the love life of hot gay stud “Alex.” The site was followed up with a novel in 2008 about Alex’s college days. In Hunting Season, Alex is played by actor Ben Baur, who has appeared on Nip/Tuck and Happily Divorced.

Check out the EW exclusive clip below. It’s the opening two minutes of the first episode — a rare mostly-SFW segment of the show, which otherwise promises the same level of skin-bearing as its HBO-series inspiration (yes, that means full-frontal nudity).

Hunting Season premieres Wednesday, Sept. 12, with an edited, SFW version playing at, and the full version available for paid download at, and free streaming a week later. New 10- to 12-minute episodes will be available every Wednesday through Oct. 17.
