The sex-and-relationship-based series - written by Murphy and Dexter co-executive producer Lauren Gussis - centers on five individuals.

Speedman's character is among them, as if Wes Bentley's arrogant Evan. They join: a married couple with both halves in their 30s; the husband’s male co-worker; and a female yoga professional in her 40s.
