Director Steven Soderbergh once shook things up in the film world by working with adult film star Sasha Grey for his experimental drama The Girlfriend Experience. The film followed the life of a call girl moving from client to client in New York City during the days leading up the 2008 presidential election. Now Soderbergh is taking the story of a high end sex worker to Starz with the new limited series going by the same title.
Riley Keough stars in the show as Christine Reade, a second year student at Chicago-Burnham Law School and a new intern at the prestigious firm of Kirkland & Allen. Her future is promising in her field, but then she takes interest in getting paid for sexual relationships for a very high price. And as the trailer illustrates, it might even prove to be more lucrative and rewarding than her work in the law.
