‘The Girlfriend Experience’ Trailer Takes You Into Escorting’s Dark Side
The new Starz drama The Girlfriend Experience might bear the same DNA as Steven Soderbergh's 2009 movie of the same name (and list him as an executive producer), but it's a markedly different product. While the 2009 version was an experimental art film that peered into the insular world of high-priced escorting, this new trailer for the TV version promises a soap-y narrative that plunges in and goes deep. Riley Keough stars as Christine Reade, a law student who gets seduced by a classmate (Kate Lyn Sheil) into providing her company to rich clientele, which causes her to lead a double life. Naturally, her newfound career leads to more money, but also more, well, you know the rest.
The Girlfriend Experience premieres on April 10.
