Showtime’s ‘Masters of Sex’: Lizzy Caplan Previews Behind the Scenes
Showtime will keep its hungry fans satisfied this summer with ‘Dexter”s eighth and final season as well as the premiere of Liev Schreiber fixer drama ‘Ray Donovan,’ but it’s the buzzworthy period drama ‘Masters of Sex‘ we can’t wait to get a look at. Premiering September 29 alongside ‘Homeland‘ season 3, the series has debuted a new video that sees Lizzy Caplan go behind the scenes, but is it as revealing as the show itself?
Like the attitude of ‘Masters of Sex’ itself, the latest look behind the scenes keeps pretty well covered, but Caplan herself promises fans that they’re “probably going to like it.” We’ve seen the pilot episode and can definitely say that ‘Masters of Sex’ will turn heads between its high-profile cast and risque content.
Starring Michael Sheen (‘Twilight‘) and Lizzy Caplan (‘Party Down’), ‘Masters of Sex’ follows two famous, real-life human sexuality research pioneers of the 1960s, 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 clip as well as the original trailer below, and tell us if you’ll check out the sexy new series in the comments!
