World Awaits "Masters of Sex" Pilot; Casting Begins as Shooting in NYC Nears Early March Date
Knock, knock: What's well-dressed, clean-shaven, and attending a formal affair in no larger than a 44Regular suit? Haha, that sure sounds like the set-up for a joke with a number of funny replies. But actually, it's the casting ad for a scene from "Masters from Sex", the Showtime pilot starring Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan. It looks like Showtime will be shooting March 7 and/or 8th here in New York. Early on, there's a scene in the pilot with a formal affair involving Dr. Masters that comes right out of the book. Hopefully, everyone will run out and buy the book to read before they air it on Showtime!
Here's the casting ad description:
