I think that's probably all the details you need to ensure your viewership. In fact, anything beyond that, and you'll probably lose interest. Take, for instance, this image from the show:

Now you know it's a period piece and they're wearing clothes. Sorry. From TV Guide:

"Masters of Sex" follows the relationship of 1960s human sexuality pioneers William Masters (Michael Sheen) and Virginia Johnson (Lizzy Caplan).The cast also includes Beau Bridges, Caitlin Fitzgerald (It's Complicated) and Margo Martindale ("Justified"). Based on Thomas Maier's acclaimed 2009 book about the couple, the project is written by Michelle Ashford (The Pacific) and directed by John Madden (Shakespeare in Love).

Cool cast, so at least there's still that, although it sounds kind of like a television series version of Kinsey. Let's just hope that Caplan and Sheen do a lot of scientific experiments. Together. And Sheen should probably go full beard because the Underworld version of Sheen is better than the Tony Blair version.
