Starz’ The Girlfriend Experience takes a new turn this season by following two parallel stories set miles apart in Washington D.C. and New Mexico.
Starring Anna Friel and Louisa Krause, the story in D.C. is set as the 2018 midterm elections loom. It focuses on a relationship between Erica Myles, a strong-willed finance director of a Republican super PAC, and Anna Garner, a girlfriend provider who helps Anna in a blackmailing scheme that leads to a complicated sexual relationship.
In New Mexico, Carmen Ejogo stars as Bria Jones, a high-end escort who enters the Witness Protection Program with her estranged step-daughter to escape an abusive relationship, and are overseen by a U.S. Marshal. As she restarts her life as a sex worker, she must protect herself from not just her ex, but those who have been charged with protecting her.
The Girlfriend Experience is inspired by Steven Soderbergh’s movie of the same name. Season two premieres November 5 at 9 p.m.
