KeKe Palmer Discusses New Role On ‘Masters Of Sex’
Most people wouldn’t think to put KeKe Palmer and the show “Masters Of Sex” in the same sentence. But it turns out that the former child star landed a role for the new season of the series. On the Showtime series, KeKe will be playing the role of Cora.
“As far as ‘Masters Of Sex,’ I did six episodes of that. My character is that I’m pretty much a domestic,” she told HipHollywood. “I’m a nanny for Dr. Masters’ wife. I take care of their baby, but also, this season goes into a little bit of the civil rights movement. So without giving away too much, my character sort of invites Dr. Masters’ wife into an understanding that maybe she didn’t have before.”
If you are unfamiliar, “Masters Of Sex” is a scripted series based on the stories of “real-life pioneers in human sexuality, William Masters and Virginia Johnson.
“The series chronicles the unusual lives, romance, and pop culture trajectory of Masters and Johnson,” the cable network describes the show.
“The real world is starting to seep in and the more we get into the 60s, the more you can’t ignore the fact that the world is changing radically, “Masters Of Sex” Executive Producer Michelle Ashford told Yahoo TV. “In fact, Masters and Johnson were part of that. There is an African American community and KeKe has a really interesting character because she starts off as one thing and becomes something radically different.”
