WATCH: Matt Bomer & Jonathan Bailey’s steamy affair is a dangerous secret in first trailer for ‘Fellow Travelers’.

Ever since the decade-spanning historical drama Fellow Travelers was first announced, we’ve pored over every detail, every crumb, every leaked set photo we could get our eyes on.

But it’s only just now—with less than a month ’til release—that Showtime has shared the first, full trailer for highly anticipated miniseries, giving us our most robust look at its epic scope and ambition yet.

Based on the 2007 novel by Thomas Mallon, Fellow Travelers is, at its core, a romance, albeit one that plays against the backdrop of a rapidly changing social and political landscape.

The story starts in Washington, D.C. in the 1950s, at a time when Senator Joseph McCarthy stoked Cold War fears and paranoia, attempting to sniff out and blacklist anyone assumed to be sympathetic to communism—which very much included queer folks.

It’s here that we meet Hawkins “Hawk” Fuller (The Normal Heart‘s Matt Bomer), a charismatic war hero and respected government official who, unbeknownst to anyone, enjoys activities such as public bathroom cruising, anonymous one-night-stands, and rough foreplay. The man is a total dom.
