Netflix has added three to the cast of its upcoming dramedy series “Sex/Life.”
Mike Vogel, Adam Demos and Margaret Odette will join previously announced star Sarah Shahi in the series based on the BB Easton book “44Chapters About 4 Men.”
The series tells the story of “a love triangle between a woman, her husband, and her past, which takes a deliciously steamy new look at female identity and desire,” according to Netflix.
Vogel (“Fantasy Island,” “Bates Motel”) will play Cooper Connelly, Demos (“UnREAL,” “Falling Inn Love”) will play Brad Simon, and Odette (“Boogie,” “How To Make Love To A Black Woman”) will play Sasha Snow.
Shahi plays Billie Connelly, described as “a woman with everything to lose, a suburban mother of two who goes in search of that sexy, single girl in the city she used to be ten years ago. She takes a fantasy-charged trip down memory lane that sets her very married present on a collision course with her wild-child past.”
Here are the character descriptions for the new additions, from Netflix:
Cooper Connelly (Vogel) “is Billie’s Husband. A family man – the All-American guy with a heart of gold and a skyrocketing career who’s given Billie the life she’s always dreamed of. But when Billie flirts with her wild, sex-filled past, he goes on his own journey to explore himself, his marriage and his fantasies. And for the first time in his life, he has more questions than answers.”
Brad Simon (Demos) “is the heartbreak Billie never got over that rises from her past and turns her marriage and suburban life upside down. He’s a cool indie music mogul with a smile that can melt any woman and a heart that’s hard to hold. His biggest regret ever was letting Billie go, and after realizing she may feel the same, he’ll do whatever it takes to win back the love of his life.”
Sasha Snow (Odette) “is Billie’s ride-or-die and together, they unleashed their wildest, sexiest selves all over lower Manhattan – and all of its handsomest men. Unlike Billie, Sasha actually finished her PhD at Columbia, and is now a celebrated author and psychology professor at her alma mater. She’s still single, still fabulous, still queen of the Lower East Side — and still Billie’s go-to bestie.”
The first two episodes of the series are directed by Patricia Rozema (“Mozart in the Jungle,” “Into the Forest”). Jessika Borsiczky (“What/If,” “UnREAL”) Samira Radsi (“Knightfall,” “Holiday Secrets”) and Sheree Folkson (“American Horror Story,” “Claws,” “UnREAL”) also direct.
Stacy Rukeyser (“UnREAL”) serves as showrunner and writer. J. Miles Dale (“Shape of Water,” “The Vow”), Jordan Hawley (“A Million Little Things,” “UnREAL,” “Smallville”), and Borsiczky (“What/If,” “UnREAL”) executive produce along with and Larry Robins.
