Soderbergh and Philip Fleishman return as executive producers with Jeff Cuban also serving as an EP. Anja Marquardt is writing, directing and co-exec producing the 10-episode scripted anthology series which hails from Transactional Pictures of NY LP in association with Populist Pictures and Magnolia Pictures.
The original season of “The Girlfriend Experience” was a reimagining of Steven Soderbergh’s 2009 critically acclaimed movie of the same name. Season one followed Christine Reade (Riley Keough), a second-year law student. Working hard to establish herself as an intern at a prestigious law firm, her focus quickly shifts when a classmate introduces her to the world of transactional relationships. The second season of the anthology series followed two parallel stories with new characters and relationships, exploring the price of intimacy and its emotional consequences and alternating between Washington, D.C. and New Mexico. Season 2 starred Anna Friel, Louisa Krause and Carmen Ejogo.
Starz VP of original programming Samantah Offsay is the exec in charge of season 3.
