“Masters of Sex”
Premieres Sunday, July 12 at 10 PM ET/PT on Showtime®

          Emmy®-winning comedian and actress Sarah Silverman will reprise her role as “Helen” on the third season of MASTERS OF SEX premiering July 12 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Showtime. Starring Emmy and Golden Globe® nominee Michael Sheen and Emmy nominee Lizzy Caplan as real-life pioneers of human sexuality, William Masters and Virginia Johnson, MASTERS OF SEX chronicles their unusual lives, romance and pop-culture trajectory.  Masters and Johnson’s research touched off the sexual revolution and took them from a mid-western teaching hospital in St. Louis to the cover of Time magazine. In the third season, the reunited Helen and Betty (Tony® Award winner Annaleigh Ashford) are trying to have a baby, which unquestionably proves quite a challenge for a lesbian couple in 1966.

          Season three of the series is set when the famed duo Masters and Johnson are dealing with the glare of the national spotlight as their sex study is finally unveiled.  Masters and Johnson’s work will have a profound impact on contemporary relationships, especially their own evolving three-way “marriage” with Masters’ wife Libby (Caitlin FitzGerald).   The series 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
