Netflix Sets Premiere Date for New Drama 'Sex/Life' Starring Sarah Shahi and Mike Vogel

Netflix has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming original drama series Sex/Life starring Sarah Shahi (Person of Interest).

All 8 episodes of the first season will be available on Friday, June 25.

The series depicts a love triangle between a woman, her husband, and her past that takes a provocative new look at female identity and desire. Billie Connelly (Shahi) wasn't always a stay-at-home wife and mother living in the suburbs. Before she married loving and reliable Cooper (Mike Vogel) and moved to Connecticut, Billie was a free-spirited wild child living in New York City with her best friend Sasha (Margaret Odette), working hard and playing even harder. Exhausted from taking care of her two young kids and feeling nostalgic for her past, Billie starts journaling and fantasizing about her passionate exploits with sexy ex-boyfriend Brad (Adam Demos), the big heartbreak she never got over. But the more Billie remembers, the more she wonders how she got here - and then her husband finds her journal. Will the truth about Billie's past start a sexual revolution in her marriage, or lead her down a path back to the life she thought she left behind with the man who broke her heart?

Stacy Rukeyser developed the drama inspired by the book 44 Chapters About 4 Men by BB Easton. She executive produces with J. Miles Dale, Jordan Hawley and director Jessica Borsiczky.
