Showtime Debuts ‘Masters Of Sex’ Trailer

It’s true, 2013 will bring us a reality show about drunk 19-year-olds riding ATVs in the mud. But click over to Showtime and there’s a new drama about sexuality researchers, Masters Of Sex, starring Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan.

Sheen plays Dr. William Masters, an OB-GYN teaching at a Midwestern college, and Caplan is his research assisant, Virginia Johnson. The series will be based on the nonfiction book Masters Of Sex, by Thomas Maier, and explains how these two became the foremost sexuality experts in a time before Dr. Ruth, Loveline, and Dan Savage. In addition to researching the sex lives of others, Masters and Johnson became romantically entangled with each other.

Showtime hasn’t yet announced when Masters Of Sex will begin its 12-episode run. The network will also debut Ray Donovan, a drama starring Liev Shrieber about a "fixer" in Los Angeles (which is also seen in the trailer below).
