Sex Education is a British coming-of-age series that follows Otis Thompson (Butterfield), a socially awkward high school virgin who lives with his mother, a sex therapist (Anderson). Surrounded by manuals, videos and tediously open conversations about sex, Otis is a reluctant expert on the subject who sets up an underground sex therapy clinic at his high school.
Sex Education is made by UK production company Eleven, the producers behind E4’s Bafta-nominated teen series Glue and Channel 4 docudrama True Horror.
“We are delighted to bring Laurie Nunn’s brilliant creation to life with such a gifted team,” said exec producer Jamie Campbell when the series was first announced in November last year. “Netflix is an exceptional partner and we are thrilled to go on this journey together.”
