Steven Soderbergh limited series “The Girlfriend Experience” has been greenlit for a second season, with a focus on entirely new characters and plotlines. Soderbergh will return as executive producer, along with Philip Fleishman, Lodge Kerrigan, Amy Seimetz, and Jeff Cuban. Andrew Fierberg and Adele Romanski will also executive produce. Lodge Kerrigan and Amy Seimetz will serve as showrunners, writers and directors for the 14-episode scripted anthology series.
“The Girlfriend Experience” is a reimagining of Soderbergh’s 2009 critically acclaimed movie of the same name. Season one, starring Riley Keough “(Magic Mike”), followed Christine Reade (Keough), a second year student at Chicago-Burnham Law School and a new intern at a prestigious law firm. Working hard to establish herself at the firm, her focus shifted when a classmate introduced her to the world of transactional relationships. Juggling two very different lives, Christine quickly finds herself drawn into the GFE world, attracted to the rush of control and intimacy.
All 13 half-hour episodes of the first season were made available for Starz subscribers on April 10 on Starz on Demand.
