Inspired by Steven Soderbergh’s same-named 2009 film, the mini-series further develops the original premise of a young attorney in training who leads a double life as a high-end sex worker. Christine Reade is a law student in Chicago and an intern at one of the city’s top firms. A friend introduces her to the world of “transactional relationships,” in which a greater level of intimacy and control sets it apart from traditional escort arrangements. Captivated by its varied benefits, Christine must learn to manipulate her conflicting identities in order to get what she wants.
