MASTERS OF SEX stars Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan as real-life pioneers of the science of human sexuality, William Masters and Virginia Johnson. Their research touched off the sexual revolution and took them from a midwestern teaching hospital to the cover of Time magazine and multiple appearances on Johnny Carson's couch. He is a brilliant scientist out of touch with his own feelings, and she is a single working mother ahead of her time. The Showtime-aired series chronicles their unusual lives, romance, and unlikely pop culture trajectory.
A couple of weeks ago the hot new show finished up its rookie season on Showtime, starring Michael Sheen (The Queen, Frost/Nixon
) and Lizzy Caplan (True Blood, Cloverfield
) as sex research pioneers Masters & Johnson. The show's cast also included Beau Bridges (The Millers
), Allison Janney (The West Wing
), Teddy Sears (Torchwood: Miracle Day
), Julianne Nicholson (Boardwalk Empire
)...and now Amazon has begun taking pre-orders for a release of Masters of Sex - The Complete 1st Season
on both DVD
and on high-def Blu-ray Disc
. These listings are prior to the official Sony Pictures Home Entertainment announcement for the title, though, so instead of a street date Amazon merely says "This title has not yet been released. You may pre-order it now and we will deliver it to you when it arrives.
" Pricing is available, however, currently showing $55.99 SRP for the standard DVD and $65.99 SRP for the Blu-ray (you can, of course, guarantee your copy right away at a discounted price, if you order it using either of the above links). There are no other details available so far at Amazon's entry, although there is an early image of possible box cover art (below; might not be final and could be subject to change). We'll update you further on this title, of course, just as soon as we find out anything more! Our thanks to reader Steven Goffstein for the heads-up!
