The series is inspired by Soderbergh's 2009 film, which starred porn star Sasha Grey as a high-end Manhattan call girl dealing with the day-to-day troubles of that profession. The series expands on that idea, following a new woman in a different city from for the 13-episode arc.
FOR THE RECORD
An earlier version of this post misspelled Sasha Grey's last name as Gray. Also, the series was originally described as having a new woman in a different city for each episode. The series will follow a single woman for the first 13 episode arc.
In a statement Fleishman said of the fictional subjects of the series, "Many of these women are extremely accomplished. They range from musicians in major orchestras to PhD candidates in the sciences and often feel empowered by the control and economic freedom their work as GFE's affords them. The question is whether they define a new genus of contemporary relationship, or have relationships always been transactionally based in one form or another?"
Either way, this series will probably have a lot of naked people.
