Masters Of Sex
If you're like me, you're probably way behind on way too many shows already. I was a big fan of the first season of "Masters Of Sex," a terrifically entertaining drama that's smarter than the title suggests, and genuinely moving at times too, led by the pretty great pair of Lizzy Caplan and Michael Sheen (not to mention the show has earned three Emmy nominations, a nice surprise). But summer is here, I'm way too busy with a million other things, and last night I just couldn't catch up with the start of season two. But thankfully Showtime is making it easier for me (and everyone else) to get caught up.

We're sure the upcoming "Masters Of Sex" has the noblest of intentions, but we're also pretty sure the suits at Showtime were happy to have a program that will undoubtedly be a nudity fest (because, ratings), and have it all be in the name of telling the story. Putting the smuttier aspects aside, this 3-minute trailer for the upcoming show actually positions itself as a pretty intriguing looking drama about the intersection of love, sex and science.

Big-screen success has been elusive for the comedic duo, but that hasn’t kept Danny McBride and Jody Hill from creating one of the most iconic comedic characters in Kenny Powers on the HBO series “Eastbound & Down.” Though that show is winding down with its final season airing later this year, McBride and Hill are sticking around on the famed cable network. Deadline reports that the two creative partners are developing another comedy series for the network, described as their “look at high school.” The final season of “Eastbound & Down” arrives in September, just in time for the MLB playoffs.

Showtime has two new television dramas premiering this year. The first is “Masters of Sex,” which stars Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan, and a new teaser trailer has recently dropped. “Masters of Sex” is based on the real-life stories of William Masters and Virginia Johnson, played by Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan, who were researchers in the nature of human sexual response. The trailer showcases a playful, provocative tone, it should be fun watching Caplan and Sheen play off each other. “Masters of Sex” will premiere on September 29th, after the third season premiere of “Homeland.”

Time for a TV news round-up now.....“Masters of Sex,” the upcoming Showtime series starring Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan, looks to have bagged itself a new recurring cast-member. Wendi McLendon-Covey (“Bridesmaids”) already has established a recurring role in “Rules of Engagement” and more recently “Modern Family,” but she’s now set to do the same in "Masters of Sex" in which she’ll play the only female doctor in a male-dominated hospital, who will also serve as both a competitor and mentor for Lizzy Caplan’s character. Showtime have already given the show a 12-episode order, with it due to debut later this year on September 29th.

Just a quick glance at the names of the two leads of Showtime’s new show “Masters of Sex” is enough to get us a little bit excited. Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan are those two names, and being that it’s generally a delight any time either of them show up on the big or small screen our interest was immediately piqued when we saw they were starring alongside each other. Well, now we’ve got our first look at the show thanks to a trailer that presents it alongside another one of their new dramas, “Ray Donovan” which boasts a similarly great lead in Liev Schreiber but tonally seems extremely different to "Masters of Sex."

After losing Paul Bettany to his flighty scheduling before replacing him with the equally incredible Michael Sheen, there was little to be heard about Showtime's latest pilot, “The Masters of Sex,” which also starred Lizzy Caplan in a lead role. However, just as one was beginning to believe a “The Corrections”-esque denial had taken place, news comes today that the network has picked the hour-long show up for a full season run, in addition to another family drama with Liev Schreiber, “Ray Donovan.”

Is this going to be another case of Paul Bettany missing the boat? The actor famously passed on "The King's Speech" (to spend time with his family), and of course, the movie won a bunch of Oscars and became a box office hit. At the beginning of the year, Bettany exited from the developing Showtime series "Masters Of Sex"-- could this be another decision that will bite him in the ass?
