Those big wigs over at Showtime, they know what they’re doing. They picked up Homeland two years ago, and ever since, it’s become THE show that other networks are trying to emulate. (See FX’s The Americans.) Next year, Showtime will also air Masters of Sex, which is a show with “sex” in the title that stars Lizzy Caplan. Yes.
Masters of Sex, starring Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan, focuses on the real-life pioneers of the science of human sexuality, William Masters and Virginia Johnson. The series will chronicle the unusual lives, romance, and pop culture trajectory of Masters and Johnson. According to Showtime, their research touched off the sexual revolution and took them from a mid-western teaching hospital in St. Louis to the cover of Time magazine and nearly a dozen appearances on Johnny Carson’s couch. Caitlin Fitzgerald, Nicholas D’Agosto, and Teddy Sears also star, along with Beau Bridges and Margo Martindale. (Via)
Include at least one Mags Bennett nude scene every episode, and you’ve got the biggest hit on TV. The trailer for Masters, as well as Ray Donovan, about a fixer (Liev Schreiber) for the rich and famous whose criminal father (Jon Voight) is unexpectedly released from prison, can be seen below.
