We already shared trailers and teasers
for Showtime’s upcoming Masters of Sex
, now we’re back with the first poster with Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan. In case you forgot, they started a conversation that ignited a revolution. Or, if you prefer this cool duo plays the pioneers into the science of human sexuality, whose research touched off the sexual revolution. Check them out in the rest of this report.
As we previously reported, the pilot is an adaptation of the book “Masters of Sex: The Life and Times of William Masters and Virginia Johnson, The Couple Who Taught America How To Love” written by Thomas Maier.
Oscar nominee director John Madden (“Shakespeare in Love”) stands behind the pilot which stars Sheen and Caplan as the title characters, two pioneering researchers of human sexuality. Not hard to guess that the this one-hour drama will chronicle the unusual lives, romance, and pop culture trajectory of Masters and Johnson.
Their research touched off the sexual revolution and took them from a midwestern teaching hospital in St. Louis to the cover of Time magazine and nearly a dozen appearances on Johnny Carson’s couch.
Let us know what you think about the project which is set to premiere on September 29th, 2013, and stay tuned for more updates!
