William Masters and Virginia Johnson are known as pioneers of the science of human sexuality. Their research shoots them to fame on a trajectory that takes them from humble beginnings in the Midwest to the cover of Time magazine.
Masters (Michael Sheen) is a brilliant scientist who is out of touch with his own feelings. Johnson (Lizzy Caplan) is a divorced mother who is ahead of her time on many fronts, including her determination to have a meaningful career. The pair’s relationship isn’t just professional, as it evolves into a three-way “marriage” with Masters’ wife, Libby (Caitlin FitzGerald).
“Masters of Sex” is based on Thomas Maier’s book of the same name, which profiled the pair. First time at retail as a COMPLETE SERIES! Originally aired on SHOWTIME (2013-16). Emmy-winning series (Allison Janney – Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series). Received 11 additional nominations throughout its 4-year fun.
Popular guest stars include Annaleigh Ashford, Beau Bridges, Julianne Nicholson, Teddy Sears, Camryn Manheim, Rich Sommer, Barry Watson, Tate Donovan, Barry Bostwick, Betty Gilpin, Peri Gilpin, Greg Grunberg, Josh Charles, Sterling K. Brown, Judy Greer, Mae Whitman, Sara Silverman, Rose McIver, Ann Dowd, Betsy Brandt, Niecy Nash, Emily Kinney, and more!
After Showtime aired the series for 4 seasons beginning in 2013, the studio (along with Paramount) released the first two seasons on DVD and Blu-ray back in 2014 and 2015. The remaining two seasons have never come out on disc, but now Mill Creek Entertainment is correcting that oversight!
Masters of Sex – The Complete Series brings you all four seasons of the cable TV masterpiece on DVD ($54.98 SRP) and high-def Blu-ray ($69.98 SRP) this August 7th. Both versions are going to be 8-disc sets, filled with each episode in all of their (naked) glory.
Special features are still to-be-determined, so stay tuned for updates about extras that might be included. Below we’ve got an Amazon.com pre-order button link, followed by the package art (may still be subject to change). This was an incredibly well-done show, touching on many themes that were taboo in their time (and some of which are still touchy subjects today). Highly recommended!
