At the Television Critics Association (TCA) press day, Starz announced The Girlfriend Experience season 2 premiere date. They also released new pics, which you can see in the gallery below. The show will return to the cable network on Sunday, November 5 at 9pm ET/PT. They also announced that the show will have a different format this season, following two parallel stories focusing on new characters, relationships and plot lines. One storyline for Steven Soderbergh-produced The Girlfriend Experience will be set in Washington, D.C. and one will be set in New Mexico. Anna Friel, (Pushing Daisies) will play Erica Myles and Louisa Krause (Billions) will play Anna Garner. Each of the two parallel storylines is written, directed and executive produced by Lodge Kerrigan and Amy Seimetz.
Kerrigan’s storyline is set against the backdrop of the corrupting influence of dark money in the upcoming 2018 U.S. mid-term elections, where everything and everyone has a price, the second season tracks an unexpected and complex relationship between Erica Myles, a commanding and strong-willed finance director of a Republican super PAC, and Anna Garner, a confident and intelligent GFE provider at the top of her game. Under intense pressure to deliver on her super PAC fundraising goals, Erica meets Anna and enlists her help in blackmailing a high-powered dark money fundraiser, in order to gain access to his secret donor network. After their initial exchange, Erica and Anna fall into a complicated sexual relationship, marked by an exploration of vulnerability, dominance and submission. A relationship that changes the trajectory of Erica’s personal and professional lives and takes Anna into new emotional territory.
Seimetz’s storyline follows Bria Jones, a former high-end escort who enters the Witness Protection Program in order to escape her abusive relationship. After being torn from her upscale lifestyle, Bria and her estranged step-daughter are relocated to New Mexico where they are overseen by a commanding US Marshal, Ian Olsen. Despite orders to stay low, Bria begins to revive her career as a sex worker, still enraptured by the allure of precarious relationships and lavish gifts. Bria’s moonlighting only becomes more complicated when it threatens to ensnare her new identity, her step-daughter, and the government official put in charge of her well-being. Bria quickly realizes she not only has to protect herself from her domineering ex but the very people who are supposed to be protecting her. Bria is forced to take matters into her own hands as she gambles not only her own safety but the people around her in a bid to regain the life she once had.
The cast of The Girlfriend Experience also includes Narges Rashidi (Under the Shadow), Michael Cram (Shadowhunters) and Emily Piggford (Hemlock Grove).
