Riley Keough brings ‘The Girlfriend Experience’ to television
LOS ANGELES – Filmmaker Steven Soderbergh shines a light on the world of transactional relationships in “The Girlfriend Experience,” a limited TV series premiering on US cable network Starz on April 10.
The show follows law student Christine Reade, played by Riley Keough, as she juggles school and life as a high priced escort, providing clients with emotional and sexual relationships.
“I thought it was going to be a lot more taxing emotionally and difficult. But it was actually like very easy because Christine is a very strong, happy – she’s fine with all the things she is doing,” said Keough, who is the daughter of Lisa Marie Presley and granddaughter of the late singer Elvis Presley. -Reuters
