Starz Network 'The Girlfriend Experience' Casting Call in Chicago

'The Girlfriend Experience' is now casting extras to appear in the new TV series for the Starz network.

According to Variety, “The Girlfriend Experience” will center around the world of high-end escorts who provide not only sex but also companionship experiences for their clients. The half-hour series will revolve around a woman working as a “GFE,” as these services as known, as she encounters different clients and experiences. Steven Soderbergh will executive produce 'The Girlfriend Experience'. He is best known for directing critically acclaimed commercial Hollywood films like the crime comedy Out of Sight (1998), the biographical film Erin Brockovich (2000), the crime drama film Traffic (2000), the remake of the comedy heist film Ocean's Eleven (2001), and the medical thriller Contagion (2011). From Variety:
Fleishman was intrigued by the world after meeting a woman who worked as a GFE to finance her education as she pursued her doctorage. The series aims to probe the larger question of the nature of relationships and how far removed the world of GFEs (some of whom command as much as $2,000 an hour) are from more traditional romantic relationships. “This is show is about looking at the nature of transactions and relationships and how we define the boundaries in our relationships,” Fleishman told Variety. When Fleishman pitched Soderbergh the idea, “I saw the potential for expansion of the world immediately,” Soderbergh told Variety. “We didn’t want to just remake the film. We were intrigued with the idea of going to a new location with a new character on a new trajectory.” He emphasized that the show aims to counter the myth that all women who work as escorts, even when sex is part are the deal, are coerced into it or have suffered emotional damage. “We’re hoping to up-end the traditional assumptions about these kind of relationships and the women who work as GFEs,” Soderbergh said. In researching the possibility of doing the TV series, “we realized how varied (the women’s) experiences really were,” Fleishman added. “There’s no stereotypical experience here.” Nor is it a job that is exclusively done by women, which is something the show may wind up tackling, Fleishman noted.
