Today, Showtime released the first look at its two new dramas “Ray Donovan,” starring Emmy and Golden Globe® Award nominee Liev Schreiber and Oscar winner Jon Voight, and “Masters of Sex,” starring Emmy and BAFTA Award nominee Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan.
“Ray Donovan” and “Masters of Sex” mark Liev Schreiber and Michael Sheen’s first lead television roles. As the newest additions to the network’s critically-acclaimed and award-winning slate of original series, both dramas will premiere in 2013. You can check out the first look trailer below.
Set in the sprawling mecca of the rich and famous, “Ray Donovan” does the dirty work for LA’s top power players. The one-hour drama series stars Liev Schreiber as the go-to guy who makes the problems of the city’s celebrities, superstar athletes, and business moguls disappear. This powerful family drama unfolds when his father, played by Jon Voight, is unexpectedly released from prison, setting off a chain of events that shakes the Donovan family to its core.
“Masters of Sex” is a one-hour drama starring acclaimed actors Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan, who will 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.
