The full-length Masters of Sex trailer has arrived, and while the new Showtime series looks as risque as advertised, it also appears to be a truly smart period drama about the two unconventional scientists who dared to study the nature of sex.
Be warned, that doesn’t mean the trailer isn’t NSFW–it is–but it also gives us a closer look at Michael Sheen’s curious William Masters and Lizzy Caplan’s daring Virginia Johnson. Together the duo pioneered the study of human sexuality and sparked a revolution in the process. Here we see how: through a series of experiments that are not fit for those who embarrass easily. Check out the trailer below. Will you be tuning in this fall?
Masters of Sex premieres Sunday, September 26th at 10PM ET/PT on Showtime.
