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.”
The other brand new drama from is “Ray Donovan” and Showtime has been generous enough to allow us to watch the entire first episode online right now. The show stars Liev Schreiber as the title character and Jon Voight as the character’s father, Mickey Donovan. Ray Donovan’s a fixer in Los Angeles, cleaning up after the rich and famous. Ray starts having problems of his own, however, when his father gets released from prison after a twenty-year stint. Paula Malcomson (“Deadwood”), Eddie Marsan (“Happy-Go-Lucky”), and Katherine Moennig (“The L Word”) rounds out the cast. “Ray Donovan” premieres on June 30th after the eighth and final season premiere of “Dexter.” [Indiewire]
