What happens when you get married and you leave behind the wild life you lived in your younger years in favor of raising a family and having the white picket fence, suburban lifestyle? Well, in “Sex/Life,” it leads to a lot of fantasizing.
As seen in the trailer for Netflix’s new drama series, “Sex/Life,” the series stars Sarah Shahi as, Billie, a stay-at-home wife and mother that has a seemingly great life in the suburbs. However, she craves the excitement and desire she felt in her younger years when she was seeing her bad boy ex-boyfriend, Brad. But after her fantasy journal is found by her husband, Billie has to figure out how to have that sex-filled fantasy while still being a mom and wife.
Joining Shahi in the cast are Mike Vogel, Adam Demos, and Margaret Odette. The series comes from creator Stacy Rukeyser. She’s probably best known for her work on series such as “Unreal,” “Twisted,” and “The Lying Game.”
“Sex/Life” debuts on Netflix on June 25. You can watch the new trailer below.
Here’s the synopsis:
Sex/Life is the story of a love triangle between a woman, her husband, and her past that takes a provocative new look at female identity and desire. Billie Connelly (Sarah 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?
