Sex Education trailer: X-Files actor Gillian Anderson plays larger-than-life sex therapist in British comedy show
Sex Education, starring Gillian Anderson and Asa Butterfield will premiere on Netflix on 11 January.
Netflix released the trailer for its upcoming British dramedy Sex Education on 3 January. The clip opens with Jean (played by Gillian Anderson), a larger-than-life sex therapist with no filter, initiating a rather uncomfortable conversation with her teenage son Otis Milburn (played by Asa Butterfield). "I noticed you’re pretending to masturbate. And I was wondering if you wanted to talk about it." Another instance is shown where Jean asks a client to "start by telling me the earliest memory of your scrotum."
Otis is a socially awkward teenager, who in order to gain status in high school and after his home life is revealed to his peers, reluctantly takes up the job of being their sex therapist. As he is always surrounded by manuals, videos and his mother's insistence on having open conversations about sex, he is almost an expert.
Otis teams up with Maeve (played by Emma Mackey) and his best friend Eric (Ncuti Gatwa) to set up an underground sex therapy clinic to deal with their fellow students' problems, which occasionally border on bizarre - from a "wanking addiction" to "out of control" pubic hair.
Connor Swindells will be seen as Adam Groff, Aimee Louwood as Aimee Gibbs and Kedar Williams-Stirling will portray Jackson Monroe in the show..
The eight-episode show has been created and written by Laurie Hunn. Ben Taylor and Kate Herron have helmed the series.
Sex Education will premiere on 11 January.
