Sarah Shahi’s suburban housewife has a complicated, fantasy-filled Sex/Life in the first trailer for Netflix’s steamy new drama (premiering Friday, June 25).
Created by Stacy Rukeyser (UnREAL), the series takes “a provocative new look at female identity and desire” through the lens of “a love triangle between a woman, her husband and her past,” per the official synopsis.
Person of Interest vet Shahi stars as Billie Connelly, a stay-at-home wife and mother living in the Connecticut suburbs who used to be a free-spirited New York City wild child before she married the loving and reliable Cooper (Under the Dome‘s Mike Vogel). “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 (UnREAL‘s 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.”
