Showtime announced on Thursday (February 2) that [Michael] Sheen will play William Masters and [Lizzy] Caplan will be Virginia Johnson in “Masters of Sex,” which focuses on the “human sexuality pioneers.”
Masters and Johnson began their research at Washington University in 1957, culminating in the publication of the seminal — pun horribly intended — texts “Human Sexual Response” and “Human Sexual Inadequacy,” published in 1966 and 1970. The Showtime series is an adaptation of Thomas Maier’s “Masters of Sex: The Life and Times of William Masters and Virginia Johnson, The Couple Who Taught America How To Love.” [HitFix]
