Netflix have announced that they will be starting production on a new coming of age dramedy “Sex Education” in Spring 2018. The series will tell the story of Otis a high school virgin who lives with his Mother, a sex therapist. “Sex Education”, produced by Eleven (“The Enfield Haunting”, “Cast Offs”), will start production in the UK in 2018 and debut globally on Netflix in 2019.
Meet 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. Through his analysis of teenage sexuality, Otis realises he may need some therapy of his own.
