July needs to get here fast!

July 13th is when the new season of Showtime’s Masters Of Sexbegins and after talking to cast members and creator Michelle Ashford earlier this week at the Leonard H. Goldenson Theater  in North Hollywood, I’m ready to dive in NOW.

Of course, a lot of the buzz of the evening was the recent announcement that Sarah Silverman, typically known for comedy, will be joining the cast in an arc that has something to do with Annaleigh Ashford’s lesbian character, Betty. I asked Ashford and creator Ashford (no relation between the two, by the way) about Silverman’s addition as well as Beau Bridges and Allison Janney, who shared the compelling storyline last season of Bridges’ character trying to deny his homosexual feelings from his wife.

Masters Of Sex returns for season 2 on July 13th on Showtime.
