"The Girlfriend Experience" (TV show) is a scripted anthology series on Starz that is inspired by the 2009 Magnolia Pictures film of the same title.

The series explores the relationships of the most exclusive courtesans who provide their clients with far more than just sex. These purveyors — or GFEs (Girlfriend Experience) — share intimacies more common to romantic partners or husbands and wives, becoming quasi-lovers and confidants who are richly paid for their time.

Riley Keough ("Magic Mike," "Mad Max: Fury Road") stars as Christine Reade, a law student at the University of Chicago and an intern at a prestigious law firm, who is intrigued when a friend introduces her to the world of transactional relationships. Attracted to the rush of control and easy money, Christine has to confront her own conflicting identities. She learns to navigate and manipulate the big personalities in both worlds to get what she wants, in the process becoming a quasi-lover and confidant to men who are willing to pay richly for her time, offering a service known as a GFE (Girlfriend Experience).

The cast also includes Mary Lynn Rajskub, Paul Sparks and Kate Lyn Sheil.

"The Girlfriend Experience" is produced by Transactional Pictures, which licensed the rights from the owner of the original feature film, Magnolia Pictures. Steven Soderberg, Philip Fleishman, Gary Marcus and Jeff Cuban serve as executive producers along with independent filmmakers Lodge Kerrigan and Amy Seimetz, who also write and direct on the series.

The original feature, directed by Steven Soderbergh and written by Brian Koppelman and David Levien, screened at the Sundance Film Festival in 2009.
