Starz released the first official trailer for The Girlfriend Experience, a new anthology series co-created by Lodge Kerrigan and Amy Seimetz. Kerrigan and Seimetz wrote and directed season one’s 13 episodes and executive produce with Steven Soderbergh, Philip Fleishman, Gary Marcus and Jeff Cuban. If the title sounds familiar that’s because the series is inspired by Soderbergh’s 2009 film of the same name.
Starz is aiming for a 2016 premiere.
The Girlfriend Experience Plot:
The Girlfriend Experience follows Christine Reade, a second year student at Chicago-Burnham Law School and a new intern at the prestigious firm of Kirkland & Allen. Working hard to establish herself at the firm, her focus quickly shifts when a classmate introduces her to the world of transactional relationships. Known as GFEs, they are women who provide “The Girlfriend Experience” – emotional and sexual relationships at a very high price. Juggling two very different lives, Christine quickly finds herself drawn into the GFE world, attracted to the rush of control and intimacy.
