"About "The Girlfriend Experience" Season 2

STARZ Limited series "The Girlfriend Experience" is a reimagining of Steven Soderbergh's 2009 critically acclaimed movie of the same name and explores the relationships between exclusive escorts and their clients, for whom they provide far more than just sex. Known as GFEs, they are women who provide "The Girlfriend Experience" - emotional and sexual relationships at a very high price. Season two will focus on entirely new characters and take on a new format by following two parallel storylines each written, directed and executive produced by Lodge Kerrigan and Amy Seimetz.

Kerrigan's storyline is set against the backdrop of the corrupting influence of dark money in the upcoming 2018 U.S. midterm elections, where everything and everyone has a price. The second season tracks an unexpected and complex relationship between Erica Myles (Anna Friel), a commanding and strong-willed finance director of a Republican super PAC, and Anna Garner (Louisa Krause), a confident and intelligent GFE provider at the top of her game. Under intense pressure to deliver on her super PAC fundraising goals, Erica meets Anna and enlists her help in attempting to blackmail a high-powered dark money fundraiser, in order to gain access to his secret donor network. After their initial exchange, Erica and Anna fall into a complicated sexual relationship, marked by an exploration of vulnerability, dominance and submission. A relationship that changes the trajectory of Erica's personal and professional lives and takes Anna into new emotional territory.

Seimetz's storyline follows Bria Jones (Carmen Ejogo), a former high-end escort who enters the Witness Protection Program in order to escape her abusive relationship. After being torn from her upscale lifestyle, Bria and her estranged step-daughter are relocated to New Mexico where they are overseen by a commanding US Marshal, Ian Olsen (Tunde Adebimpe). Despite orders to stay low, Bria begins to revive her career as a sex worker, still enraptured by the allure of precarious relationships and lavish gifts. Bria's moonlighting only becomes more complicated when it threatens to ensnare her new identity, her step-daughter, and the government official put in charge of her well-being. Bria quickly realizes she not only has to protect herself from her domineering ex but the very people who are supposed to be protecting her. Bria is forced to take matters into her own hands as she gambles not only her own safety but the people around her in a bid to regain the life she once had.?

Oscar(R) and Emmy(R)-winner Steven Soderbergh (Ocean's Eleven, Magic Mike, "The Knick") and Philip Fleishman serve as executive producers alongside Lodge Kerrigan (Clean, Shaven; "The Killing") and Amy Seimetz (Sun Don't Shine, Alien: Covenant), who are the co-creators, writers and directors on the series. Jeff Cuban, Andrew Fierberg (Secretary, My Art) and Academy(R) and Golden Globe(R)-winning producer Adele Romanski (Moonlight) also executive produce. Senior Vice President of Original Programing Ken Segna is the Starz executive in charge of "The Girlfriend Experience."
