Guest stars include Beau Bridges, Sarah Silverman, Niecy Nash, Betty Gilpin, Andre Royo, David Walton, Alysia Reiner, Jeremy Strong and Ashley Zukerman. MASTERS OF SEX was developed for television by Michelle Ashford (The Pacific), who also serves as an executive producer. In addition, the series is executive produced by Sarah Timberman, Carl Beverly, Amy Lippman and Judith Verno. Michael Sheen, Lizzy Caplan, Tammy Rosen and Thomas Maier serve as producers. Produced by Sony Pictures Television, MASTERS OF SEX is an adaptation of Thomas Maier’s book Masters of Sex: The Life and Times of William Masters and Virginia Johnson, The Couple Who Taught America How To Love.
