The series, starring Riley Keough (Magic Mike, Mad Max: Fury Road), is a reimagining of Steven Soderbergh's 2009 critically-acclaimed movie of the same name. Soderbergh executive produces, along with Philip Fleishman, Lodge Kerrigan, Amy Seimetz, Gary Marcus and Jeff Cuban.

CEO of Starz Chris Albrecht said "We believe the provocative world created by Steven, Lodge and Amy, coupled with an absolutely mesmerizing performance by Riley Keough in the lead role will make 'The Girlfriend Experience' difficult to turn off.

"The Girlfriend Experience" follows Christine Reade, a second year student at Chicago-Burnham Law School and a new intern at the prestigious firm of Kirkland & Allen. Working hard to establish herself at the firm, her focus quickly shifts when a classmate introduces her to the world of transactional relationships. Known as GFEs, they are women who provide "The Girlfriend Experience" - emotional and sexual relationships at a very high price. Juggling two very different lives, Christine quickly finds herself drawn into the GFE world, attracted to the rush of control and intimacy. Lodge Kerrigan and Amy Seimetz are the co-creators, writing and directing all 13 episodes. It also stars Mary Lynn Rajskub, Paul Sparks and Kate Lyn Sheil.
