Showtime is giving viewers a tease of new drama “Masters of Sex,” premiering this fall with the return of “Homeland” Season 3.

The historical drama stars Michael Sheen (“The Twilight Saga”) and Lizzy Caplan (“New Girl,” “True Blood”) as famed sex research pioneers Masters and Johnson and promises a detailed look at their personal and professional lives. It sounds like the perfect mix of classy drama with a “premium cable” twist (i.e. no need to shy away from the racy stuff).

From the looks of this teaser the show seems to have a light touch. How will that play paired with the intensity of “Homeland”? Showtimes seems confident enough to give it the coveted slot.
