BROS. I can hear it now. “First, a gay Christmas movie, now a rom-com?” Yes, Karen. An LGBTQIA Rom-Com that not only looks hilarious, but is also full of heart, and truths. 

Emmy Nominated comedian, Billy Eichner (The Lion King – Billy on the Street) is the first openly gay man to co-write and star in the first romantic comedy from a major studio about two gay men. The Universal Pictures film Bros, tells a story that seems pretty close to home for Eichner. He plays Bobby Leiber, a podcast host who talks about whatever he feels like talking about.

Two big movie producers ask Bobby to write a rom-com about a gay couple. “Something a straight guy might even like and watch with his girlfriend”. The trailer then goes on to discuss how ridiculous the idea is while showing the juxtaposition of Bobby meeting someone and falling in love. 

BROS comes to theaters on September 30th, 2020!


Here’s the official Logline

This fall, Universal Pictures proudly presents the first romantic comedy from a major studio about two gay men maybe, possibly, probably, stumbling towards love. Maybe. They’re both very busy. 

Alongside Billy Eichner stars an entirely LGBTQ+ principal cast, including Luke Macfarlane (Single All The Way), Ts Madison (The Ts Madison Experience – Zola), Monica Raymund (Chicago Fire), Guillermo Díaz (Scandal), Guy Branum (The Other Two), Amanda Bearse (Married …with Children), as well as Dot-Marie Jones (Glee) and Bowen Yang (SNL).

BROS is written by both Eichner and Nicholas Stoller (Neighbors – Forgetting Sarah Marshall). Stoller is also directing. Producing the film are Judd Apatow, Stoller, and Joshua Church (co-producer Trainwreck – Step Brothers). Eichner also serves as executive producer.
