“Riley Keough astonishes” (US Weekly) in “Spring’s most compelling series” (Adam Rathe, Dujour), “The Girlfriend Experience” alongside Paul Sparks (“House of Cards,” “Boardwalk Empire,” Mud) and Mary Lynn Rajskub (“24: Live Another Day,” “2 Broke Girls,” Little Miss Sunshine). Having previously worked together on Magic Mike, Steven Soderbergh and Riley Keough (Mad Max: Fury Road) continue their working partnership with this “sharp” (Nick Schager, The Daily Beast) and “intelligent” (US Weekly) drama “The Girlfriend Experience.” The STARZ Limited series, which was written and directed by Lodge Kerrigan and Amy Seimetz, is suggested by Soderbergh’s original film by the same name, and will be available on Blu-ray™ and DVD on August 2, 2016 from Anchor Bay Entertainment and on Digital HD today from Starz Digital.
Christine Reade (Riley Keough) is a second year student at Chicago-Burnham Law School and a new intern at a prestigious firm. Working hard to establish herself at the firm, her focus quickly shifts when a classmate introduces her to the world of transactional relationships. Known as GFEs, they are women who provide “The Girlfriend Experience” — emotional and sexual relationships at a very high price. Juggling two very different lives, Christine quickly finds herself drawn into the GFE world, attracted to the rush of control and intimacy.
“The Girlfriend Experience” premiered to critical acclaim on Starz on April 10, 2016 and was co-created by Lodge Kerrigan (Claire Dolan) and Amy Seimetz (Sun Don’t Shine). Executive Produced by Steven Soderbergh (Magic Mike, Ocean’s Eleven Franchise, Erin Brockovich), Philip Fleishman, Lodge Kerrigan, Amy Seimetz, Jeff Cuban and Gary Marcus, “The Girlfriend Experience” will be available on Blu-ray and DVD from Anchor Bay Entertainment on August 2, 2016 for the suggested retail price of $39.98 and $49.99, respectively.
