Steven Soderbergh previously delved into the world of high-end escorts for his 2009 indie experimental film, The Girlfriend Experience. The 52-year-old acclaimed director revisits the topic for his new Starz series with the same name.
While his film starred then-active adult film actress Sasha Grey, his new leading lady is none other than Elvis Presley’s granddaughter, Riley Keough. She portrays a University of Chicago law student named Christine Reade who’s also an intern at a prestigious law firm. When a friend introduces her to the world of transactional relationships, she’s intrigued and attracted to the easy money. Naturally, of course.
The 13-episode drama will premiere on the network in 2016. Since Soderbergh is involved, I expect quality. His previous forays dealing with sex have yielded positive results. Sex, Lies, and Videotape and Magic Mike anyone? Check out the trailer below.
