Frank Griffin, a menacing outlaw, is terrorizing the west as he hunts down his son-like partner – turned mortal enemy – Roy Goode, who is hiding at Alice Fletcher’s ranch near the quiet town of La Belle, NM, which is made up entirely of women.
Godless is a seven-part epic western series from Steven Soderbergh, Casey Silver and Scott Frank. It stars Jeff Daniels, Michelle Dockery and Jack O’Connell – and will premiere on Netflix on November 22nd.
Starz has announced the premiere date and the basic premise for season two of Steven Soderberg’s The Girlfriend Experience.
TGE will have two separate arcs in season two – set in Washington DC as 2018 mid-term elections approach, and in New Mexico where a woman who has entered the Witness Protection Program finds herself unable to maintain the low profile required by the WPP and… consequences.
The girlfriend Experience: Season Two will premiere on Sunday, November 5th (9/8C).
Watching the first season of The Girlfriend Experience is a bit unnerving. It’s an intimate experience – verging on voyeurism – because the ten episodes flow by so smoothly that it feels far too real when something jagged breaks the surface. Then, and only then, do we realize that there’s been all kinds of roiling, bubbling undercurrents that have to one explosive moment or another.
2012’s Magic Mike was a left field smash loosely based on Channing Tatum’s experiences as a ‘male entertainer.’ It was smart, witty and filled with intriguing characters – not to mention some amazing dancing.
Magic Mike XXL has all of the above except for the smart and the witty. The guys are still kinda fun, but the script really seems rushed and thin. Of course, most of the target demo will only be there for the dancing and stripping, but if they want anything more, they will be disappointed.
Steven Soderbergh’s The Girlfriend Experience introduced the concept of ultra-exclusive courtesans who provided a great deal more than sex – a ‘girlfriend experience.’
Starz has greenlit an anthology series based on the concept. It will run as 13 half-hour episodes. Soderbergh and Philip Fleishman will be executive producers along with indie filmmakers Lodge Kerrigan and Amy Seimetz – who will also write and direct on the series. Details follow the jump.
