Assembled for a TV Academy panel, the cast and creators of the Showtime series revealed how they do sex scenes and gender equality right, and why most other TV shows do not.
Allison Janney was on board to join Showtime's period drama Masters of Sex, that is until the creators told her she may actually have to have sex.
"Do you know I old I am?" she recalled of her response at a Television Academy panel Tuesday night.
