Groff, who plays a video game designer searching for love via OkCupid, recently told the San Francisco Gate: "The show hopefully will express all facets of gay life. We're all different types of people. There's lots of people who have anonymous sex. There's also people looking for love. There's people looking for an open relationship. There are also the queens. There are those you wouldn't know were gay. It's the gay experience."
