Sex, relationships and insecurity are intertwined in Netflix’s upcoming “Sex Education” in 2019, which is described as a coming-of-awkward-age dramedy. The logline: Meet Otis Thompson – a socially awkward high school virgin who lives with his mother, a sex therapist. Surrounded by manuals, videos and tediously open conversations about sex, Otis is a reluctant expert on the subject. When his home life is revealed at school, Otis realizes that he can use his specialist knowledge to gain status. He teams up with Maeve, a whip-smart bad-girl, and together they set up an underground sex therapy clinic to deal with their fellow students’ weird and wonderful problems. Through his analysis of teenage sexuality, Otis realizes he may need some therapy of his own.
”Sex Education” is set to begin production in the U.K. in spring 2018. It is produced by Eleven, with executive producers Jamie Campbell and Joel Wilson. Laurie Nunn is creator and writer. Ben Taylor (Catastrophe) will direct and executive produce.
