'Masters of Sex' Trailer: Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan Star in New Must-See Showtime Series

Share

Wait — Lizzy Caplan and Michael Sheen in a Showtime Original Series about sex science? You had me at... any of those words. Masters of Sex is an original drama slated to premiere on Showtime Sept. 29. Caplan and Sheen star as Virginia E. Johnson (could you think of a more innuendoy name) and William H. Masters, two pioneers in the research of human sexual behavior, sexual disorders and disfunction. Sexperts, if you will.

I've never seen Caplan and Sheen together but I love them seperately. Caplan, probably most notorious as Mean Girls' Janis Ian, has also been amazing on Freaks and Geeks, Party Down, and True Blood. Sheen is a million-time nominated and award-winning Welsh dude who is fantastic in everything he does. Maybe you remember him as Liz Lemon's laughing-gas induced hate soulmate on 30 Rock. (Or any of his serious roles in Frost/Nixon, The Queen, and more.)
