Masters of Sex
Starring Michael Sheen as Dr. William Masters and Lizzy Caplan as Virginia Johnson, “Masters of Sex” explores the research and the relationship of two pioneering researchers of human sexuality working at Washington University in St. Louis in the 1950s and early 1960s. Spearheaded by Executive Producers Sarah Timberman (along with her partner, Carl Beverly) and Michelle Ashford, who assembled a majority-female writing staff, the series was honored, along with five others, with the 2013 Critics’ Choice Television Award for Most Exciting New Series. The show will air its third season this summer.
