What I Did On My Summer Vacation: Visiting "Masters of Sex" in Hollywood


Hollywood is grand this time of year. The Emmy nominations are out, and "Masters of Sex" has five of them, including best actress for Lizzy Caplan. Last week, I spent five days in Los Angeles on the set of "Masters of Set", attending parties, and chatting with Michael Sheen on location. One of these days I'm going to get my photo taken with Michelle Ashford and Sarah Timberman, the two executive producers, who were so busy I couldn't stop them. Everyone was in good spirits, though tired, as the last days of shooting Season 2 were winding up. Here some of the photos from my trip.
