"Masters of Sex" (TV show) is a drama series on Showtime that stars Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan, who portray the real-life pioneers of the science of human sexuality, William Masters and Virginia Johnson. The series chronicles the unusual lives, romance and pop culture trajectory of Masters and Johnson. Their research touched off the sexual revolution and took them from a mid-western teaching hospital in St. Louis to the cover of Time magazine and nearly a dozen appearances on Johnny Carson's couch.

The cast also includes Caitlin Fitzgerald ("It's Complicated") as Masters' wife, as well as Nicholas D'Agosto ("Heroes") and Teddy Sears ("American Horror Story"). Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning actor Beau Bridges and Margo Martindale also appear in the pilot.

Season 3

Season 3 brings big changes to "Masters of Sex" as the series is now set in 1966. As the season opens, the famed duo Masters and Johnson find themselves in the glare of the national spotlight as their controversial sex study is finally unveiled. Masters and Johnson's work will have a profound impact on contemporary relationships, especially their own evolving three-way "marriage" with Masters' wife Libby.

"Masters of Sex" is produced by Sony Pictures Television. The series is an adaptation of Thomas Maier's book "Masters of Sex: The Life and Times of William Masters and Virginia Johnson, The Couple Who Taught America How to Love." The pilot episode was directed by Academy Award nominee John Madden ("Shakespeare in Love," "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel"), who also serves as executive producer. The series was created and executive produced by Michelle Ashford ("The Pacific"). The series is executive produced by Timberman Beverly Productions' Carl Beverly and Sarah Timberman, and Judith Verno. Michael Sheen and Tammy Rosen serve as producers.
