Showtime is about to have some major holes in its schedule created by the respective finales of both 'Dexter's seventh season and 'Homeland's sophomore run, and even with the returning Sunday lineup of 'Shameless,' 'House of Lies' and 'Californication' plenty of new dramas are waiting in the wings. Enter 'Masters of Sex' and 'Ray Donovan' putting together an impressive mix of stars that includes Michael Sheen, Lizzay Caplan, Liev Schrieber and even John Voight! Are you ready for a first look at Showtime's new dramas?
Looks like ol' 'Dexter' and Carrie Matheson of 'Homeland' are going to have some major company on Showtime next year, as the network has just picked up to series two high-profile new dramas.
