The Affair Series Premiere Preview [VIDEO and PHOTOS] 


Warning: Spoilers Ahead

Everything about this series intrigues us. It’s got a great cast in Dominic West, Ruth Wilson, Maura Tierney and Joshua Jackson. The title is a pretty good indicator of what the show is about, but there’s more to it.

Series synopsis, from Showtime:

The Affair explores the emotional and psychological effects of an extramarital affair. The provocative drama, told separately from the male and female perspectives, uses distinct memory biases to both misdirect and intrigue. Ruth Wilson plays Alison, a young woman waiting tables at a popular Hamptons diner, trying to piece her life back together in the wake of a tragedy. Her husband, Joshua Jackson’s Cole, struggles to keep it all together, with his wife and with the financially-strained ranch that has been in his family for generations. Their emotionally-charged marriage becomes even more complicated when Alison begins an affair with Dominic West’s Noah, a New York City public school teacher and aspiring novelist who is spending the summer at his in-laws’ estate out on the island. Maura Tierney plays Helen, Noah’s college sweetheart, best friend, mother of his children, lover and wife of 17 years.

The Affair premieres Sunday, October 12 at 10/9c on Showtime.
