Sheen portrays Dr. Masters, based on the real life sex researcher who helped to usher in the sexual revolution. While researching for the sake of science, Masters had a sexual revolution of his own with the cooperation of his sultry assistant Virginia Johnson (Lizzy Caplan).

"Masters of Sex" is based on the real life sex researchers Masters & Johnson, but it is a dramatization and not a bio-pic. The Showtime series tells the story with fictional characters and events.

As the finale approaches, Masters' wife Libby (Caitlin Fitzgerald) is pregnant with the scientific help of Dr.Ethan Haas (Nicholas D'Agosto), who was fired for keeping Libby's secret from Masters, a rather cold man who shows no enthusiasm for impending fatherhood.

Dr. Haas is madly in love with Virginia and seems like he would make a loving husband, as well as a great father for her two children. Virginia still has feelings for Masters, so the relationship with Haas is not destined to last.

Meanwhile, Virginia Johnson has found an unexpected ally in Dr. Lillian DePaul (Julianne Nicholson), who has revealed that she is dying of cervical cancer. At first Dr. DePaul seemed to look down on Johnson, but she is actually a woman's advocate ahead of her time who wants Virginia to get credit for her work. DePaul is a fictional character who serves to illustrate attitudes towards Johnson's lack of credentials.

Provost Dr. Scully (Beau Bridges) is a closeted gay, conflicted by his homosexuality while trying to save his longtime marriage to Margaret Scully (Allison Janey), who has turned to a younger lover to compensate for lack of affection from her husband. Dr. Scully is not just conflicted about his own sexuality, he is also concerned about the groundbreaking research being done by Dr. Masters and the effect the research might have on the reputation of the hospital.

"Masters and Johnson" stars Martin Sheen as Dr. Masters, Lizzy Caplan as Virginia Johnson, Beau Bridges as Dr. Scully, Caitlin Fitzgerald as Libby Masters, Nicholas D'Agosto as Dr. Ethan Haas, Allison Janey as Margaret Scully, Teddy Sears and Margo Martindale.

"Masters of Sex" was created and executive produced by Michelle Ashford ("The Pacific"). The series is executive produced by Timberman Beverly Productions' Carl Beverly and Sarah Timberman, and Judith Verno. Michael Sheen and Tammy Rosen serve as producers. The drama is is produced by Sony Pictures Television.
