When trafficking in premium cable series about the exploration of escort culture, “NSFW” feels like a given. Still, with a name and pedigree like Steven Soderbergh or Starz’s The Girlfriend Experience TV adaptation, the series is expected to draw plenty of eyes. Before its big Sundance premiere, take a look at Riley Keough in The Girlfriend Experience with a brand-new trailer.

Last we heard of period favorite The Knick, director Steven Soderbergh seemed ready to step down if Cinemax opted to press forward with a third and fourth season. There’s still no official word if The Knick will return, or in what capacity just yet, but now Soderbergh might return behind the camera after all, promising a “pretty extreme” third season.
It’s been a few weeks since the Season 2 finale of Cinemax-Soderbergh medical period drama The Knick, which itself … well, it didn’t leave prospects for the series (or star Clive Owen) in a great place. We’ve heard that Steven Soderbergh might step back for a possible third, even fourth season, but now the revered director envisions it to run as long as six.
Those following Steven Soderbergh’s fantastically auteur medical drama The Knick understandably found themselves aghast at the Season 2 finale, a stark reminder that Soderbergh and series star Clive Owen only signed on for two years. Now, the director confirms that he himself will exit the series, though Cinemax may well move forward with a Season 3 (and 4) that looks markedly different.
For all the critical steam Steven Soderbergh and Clive Owen’s Cinemax period drama The Knick picked up over two seasons (the second of which ended just last night), the series has long been conceived and contracted to run only two years. At least one major character’s fate was left in doubt by the Season 2 finale, though Cinemax has officially begun consideration of a third, ordering an initial script.
Seriously, does Steven Soderbergh ever sleep? In between directing episodes of Cinemax’s The Knick, the Magic Mike director apparently had time to re-envision The Girlfriend Experience as a new Starz series debuting in 2016. Anyway, here’s the first sexy trailer, chock full of … you know. Sexy things. Girlfriend things.
Riding the crest of this new wave of female-led studio vehicles comes a reboot/remake/reimagining/rework/revision of Ocean’s 11 with an all-lady cast of charismatic robbers.
Director interviews are often quite interesting, but as it turns out, it takes a director to really get his (or her) fellow directors to open up. Spectre director Sam Mendes chatted with Steven Spielberg, David Fincher, Edgar Wright and more of your favorites, asking some of the best questions — and getting some of the most revealing and delightful answers.
Steven Soderbergh is the busiest retired person on the planet. He may have quit (movie) directing in 2013, but he’s still hard at work. He was the cinematographer and editor on this summer’s Magic Mike XXL, and he’s already pumped out two seasons of the Cinemax series The Knick.
Steven Soderbergh is no stranger to playing with format, but the Magic Mike director’s latest might require a new Emmy category, by his own admission. Soderbergh has reportedly begun work on a new HBO movie titled Mosaic, featuring Sharon Stone and a unique option that lets audiences choose the ending.
