It's got sexy surgeons, sizzling South Beach, and the ultimate search for perfection. You have never seen the world of plastic surgery quite like this before.
"Extra" got a skin-deep look behind the scenes of "Nip/Tuck", FX's new cutting edge adult drama about two partners in the sometimes-ugly business of beauty.
Former soap hunk Julian McMahon stars as playboy Dr. Christian Troy, whose "sexploits" always seem to get in the way of his medical ethics. Julian says, "Don't just get me wrong, it's not just all about sex scenes. They're integral to the characters and the storyline."
While Dr. Troy's partner, played by Dylan Walsh, prefers saving his own marriage.
So there's no question the show is provocative, and very, very life-like. Did we mention "Nip/Tuck" isn't for the squeamish? Dylan says, "Even though we're faking it, it's so realistic."
"Nip/Tuck" creator Ryan Murphy, a former journalist, got the idea for the show after interviewing a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon for a story.
So get out your scrubs, it looks like "Nip/Tuck" is ready to carve a real slice out of primetime.
