Despite the recent cancellation of Jupiter’s Legacy, add to that the numerous questionable cancellations, Netflix has managed to maintain a large share of its subscriber base. Luckily for TV and film fanatics, Netflix is bringing out many new shows, including Sex/Life, a series created by Stacy Rukeyser.
A provocative new look at female identity and desire, Sex/Life is the story of a love triangle between a woman, her husband, and her past. Billie Connelly (Sarah Shahi) wasn’t always a stay-at-home mother and wife. 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. Then, 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?
