Sex Education: watch the trailer for Netflix’s British comedy series

Posted Filed under

Sex Education is a new teen comedy, set in a British school, starring Asa Butterfield, Emma Mackey and Gillian Anderson. It remains to be seen whether anyone will put a condom on a banana, but you can watch the trailer right here.

The series comes from creator Laurie Nunn, who has previously worked on a handful of short films. The trailer looks both funny and heart-warming, with Butterfield’s character using his sex therapist mum’s knowledge to become a key player at his school. You can watch the teaser below…

Also, here’s the official synopsis, which offers a bit more detail on the story side of things…

“Meet Otis Milburn – an inexperienced, socially awkward high school student who lives with his mother, a sex therapist. Surrounded by manuals, videos and tediously open conversations about sex, Otis is a reluctant expert on the subject. When his home life is revealed at school, Otis realizes that he can use his specialist knowledge to gain status. He teams up with Maeve, a whip-smart bad-girl, and together they set up an underground sex therapy clinic to deal with their fellow students’ weird and wonderful problems. Through his analysis of teenage sexuality, Otis realises he may need some therapy of his own.”

Sex Education will premiere on Netflix on January 11th.
