Starz has released the first trailer for “The Girlfriend Experience,” a TV series inspired by Steven Soderbergh’s 2009 film. Lodge Kerrigan and Amy Seimetz will pen and direct thirteen half-hour episodes which are slated to premiere in 2016.
“Magic Mike” and “Mad Max: Fury Road” actress Riley Keough stars in the series which explores the relationships between the exclusive courtesans and their clients in relationships that go beyond just sex. Soderbergh and Philip Fleishman are serving as executive producers on the series.
Keough plays a law student at the University of Chicago and an intern at a prestigious law firm, who is intrigued when a friend introduces her to the world of transactional relationships. Offering emotional and sexual relationships at a very high price, Christine is forced to juggle two very different lives as she finds herself drawn into this world.
