HERE SHE COMES
There is a lot of bad sex on television.
There is a lot of bad sex in real life.
Here She Comes will change all that.
Here She Comes tells the story of two experiential sex coaches who lead America into the next sexual revolution – one mind-blowing orgasm at a time – and the army of scamming pickup artists, terrified spouses, religious fundamentalists, and angry misogynist loners who rise up to try and stop them.
Here She Comes is a workplace drama.
The office is a sex-coaching practice and the couches see a lot of action. At the helm are two female sex coaches whose personal lives are as colorful and complex as the clients they serve.
Their mission: to liberate the nation from shame.
But as they spread their cutting-edge teachings, forces emerge to take them down.
Our protagonists are complex superheroes, that redefine bravery.
One maintains myriad lovers but is challenged when she meets a man who only wants monogamy. The other precariously holds together a family, home, and growing business until the day it all threatens to unravel.
Here She Comes is a feminist, character-driven drama.
Think Sex and the City, Jane the Virgin, Orange Is the New Black. Women front and center, but instead of complaining about men over Cosmopolitans, they transform the erotic worlds of those around them.
Here She Comes is a procedural.
Think your favorite case-of-the-week show — The Good Wife, The X-Files, Law & Order—but the case of the week is a client struggling with sexual challenges and our two detectives are iconoclastic women with an erotic touch and an exquisite knowledge of the sexual psyche.
Think you’ve seen this before?...
Current sex shows on TV are tepid at best: sex is a joke, a fetish, a titillation.
Here She Comes is dirty, intimate, playful, profound, messy, and erotic.
And the women who bring us these stories — their sex drives are surpassed only by their IQs.
Here She Comes is a battle for our hearts, from the halls of Congress to our bedrooms.
Will we follow the same old repressive scripts that have led to miserable relationships and violation?
Or will we imagine sexual revolution together and move the culture forward?
Our ambition is to dramatize the collective sexual unconscious of a nation and the battle between liberation and oppression. We want to change the way sexuality is represented on television, and deliver sexy and educational fiction that leads to increasing heights of pleasure and discovery for everyone who watches.
Here She Comes is here to change the world... one mind-blowing orgasm at a time.
Here She Comes is inspired by the Somatica Method – a revolutionary approach to sex and relationship coaching — developed over the past 15 years by co-producers Danielle Harel and Celeste Hirschman. Through the Somatica Method, thousands of people have transformed their sexual and relationship lives. The show also builds on the creator and director Jessica Habie’s personal experience as a Somatica coach-in-training.
Here She Comes is a Developing Dialogue
Beyond the fiction, the Here She Comes team is working with real thought leaders, artists, and activists in the fields sex and intimacy to create images that move the sex positive conversation forward. Already we have tapped into community intelligence, through a combination of in-person events, interviews, and collaborative social media campaigns.
We want to make the world a safer and sexier place for everyone, and use the momentum of the show to highlight and support the incredible work being done in the world.
We cannot imagine the next sexual revolution alone...
