Showtime’s New ‘Masters of Sex’ Teaser Does Exactly That
Thought we’ve got the entire summer to go before Showtime’s ‘Masters of Sex‘ debuts behind season 3 of ‘Homeland‘ on September 29, the new series featuring Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan continues to offer tantalizing teases of its sexy subject. The latest look at Showtime’s new drama offers little in the way of new footage, but plenty of eye candy to turn heads in the months before the premiere.
Though we do see snippets of footage first revealed with the ‘Ray Donovan‘ summer previews, much of the new ‘Masters of Sex’ spot devotes itself to the taboo nature of the series, with men and women disrobing left and right for their overseers William Masters and Virginia Johnson. And how about that extra-dirty series logo?
Starring Michael Sheen (‘Twilight‘) and Lizzy Caplan (‘Party Down’), ‘Masters of Sex’ follows two famous, real-life human sexuality research pioneers of the 1960s, the aforementioned William Masters and Virginia Johnson, chronicling the duo’s unconventional lives moving from a St. Louis teaching hospital to Johnny Carson and the cover of Time Magazine. The series is adapted from Thomas Maier’s book ‘Masters of Sex: The Life and Times of William Masters and Virginia Johnson, The Couple Who Taught America How To Love.’
Among the recurring cast are ‘Bridesmaids’ star Wendi McLendon-Covey, Allison Janney, Beau Bridges and ‘Justified‘ Emmy-winner Margo Martindale, the latter two of whom can also be seen in CBS fall comedy ‘The Millers.’ You can check out the new teaser as well as the original ‘Ray Donovan’ split trailer below, and tell us if you’ll check out the sexy new series in the comments!
