Well, at least HBO is about to dive into black relationships — through the eyes of three brothers.

‘Bros’, a new comedy in development from the cable television company is set to focus on the lives of three brothers, two straight, one gay and all very different. As the description on YouTube puts it, ‘Bros’ is “A semi-autobiographical comedy about three brothers, each dealing with modern-day issues in Los Angeles while trying to find love but screwing shit up along the way.”

With everything modern going on in dating (one brother is divorced and back on the dating scene), the Los Angeles based dramedy which (thankfully) dropped its original ‘Bros Before Hoes’ title doesn’t have a release date but does carry some pretty good names behind it. Cory Jones (Hand of God) and Hemingway Taylor Productions will help steer the project along with Lena Waithe (Dear White People).

“Bros Before Hos isn’t a black story or a gay story — it’s a family story about three brothers, who happen to be black, and one who happens to be gay,” Jones said in an online interview during the filming of the presentation. “There seem to be more stories that deal with the interior lives of black women, but it’s hard to find stories that deal with the interior lives of black men. We’re either thugs or athletes, but there’s so much more to who we are that falls in between that spectrum. It’s ironic that in 2014, and even with a black president, one of the hardest things to be in this country right now is a young black man.”
