Masters of Sex Trailer: Sort of Not What It Sounds Like!
Showtime's new series Masters of Sex isn't quite what its title might make you think (or hope for). There will be strong sexual content - it's still Showtime - but in a context that is both different and based on a true story.
Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan star as the real-life pioneers of the science of human sexuality, William Masters and Virginia Johnson. The series and its clever play-on-words title will chronicles their unusual lives.
In a made-for-TV tale of science, pop culture and romance, Masters and Johnson's career paths took many twists and turns as their research sparked a sexual revolution and made them celebrities in their own right.
Masters of Sex premieres in 2013. Watch the network's first promo for it below:
