Netflix orders Sex Education, filming latest

Posted Filed under

It’s clickbait gold a headline like that, isn’t it? But, in this instance, it’s a headline that’s also entirely true.

Netflix has opted to invest in a new British comedy drama by the name of Sex Education, that it’s going to have before the cameras soon, with an eye on releasing it in 2019.

Created and written by Laurie Nunn, it’ll be directed by Ben Taylor.

We’ve got an update on our earlier story too, as it’s now been revealed that pre-production work has begun for the show. It’s set to film in South Wales. Filming is expected to begin shortly.

As per The Hollywood Reporter, the overview of the series reads as follows:

Sex Education follows Otis Thompson, a socially awkward high school virgin 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.

Full casting has yet to be announced.
