Showtime is flipping the script on its summer schedule.
The cable net will pair the second seasons of “Ray Donovan” and “Masters of Sex” this summer, beginning on Sunday July 13.
The Liev Schreiber-starring “Ray Donovan,” which bowed last summer before the final season of “Dexter,” will now lead off the night at 9pm.
Meanwhile, Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan's critical hit “Masters,” which premiered last fall after “Homeland,” will air at 10pm.
Still to come on the network’s docket of hourlong series is new drama “The Affair,” an infidelity-themed series starring Maura Tierney, Joshua Jackson, Dominic West (“The Wire”) and Ruth Wilson (“Luther”).
Now that “Masters” has been moved to summer, perhaps Showtime is looking to pair “The Affair” with “Homeland” – a show that knows a thing or two about extramarital trysts.
Before then, “Nurse Jackie” and the final season of David Duchovny’s “Californication” will hit Showtime on Sunday, April 13, while the horror TV series “Penny Dreadful” will debut in May.
