FIRST LOOK AT RILEY KEOUGH IN TRAILER FOR STEVEN SODERBERGH’S NEW STARZ ORIGINAL SERIES “THE GIRLFRIEND EXPERIENCE”
Today, STARZ released the first trailer for the upcoming anthology series “The Girlfriend Experience.” The series is executive produced by Steven Soderbergh, Philip Fleishman, Lodge Kerrigan, Amy Seimetz, Gary Marcus and Jeff Cuban and stars Riley Keough (Magic Mike, Mad Max: Fury Road).
“The Girlfriend Experience” follows Christine Reade, a second year student at Chicago-Burnham Law School and a new intern at the prestigious firm of Kirkland & Allen. Working hard to establish herself at the firm, her focus quickly shifts when a classmate introduces her to the world of transactional relationships. Known as GFEs, they are women who provide “The Girlfriend Experience”—emotional and sexual relationships at a very high price. Juggling two very different lives, Christine quickly finds herself drawn into the GFE world, attracted to the rush of control and intimacy.
Lodge Kerrigan and Amy Seimetz are the co-creators, and wrote and directed all 13 episodes. It also stars Mary Lynn Rajskub, Paul Sparks and Kate Lyn Sheil, and will premiere in 2016.
