November 10, 2015
Showtime has ordered a new drama project from award-winning playwright and writer/producer Sarah Treem (House Of Cards, In Treatment) and co-creator Hagai Levi (In Treatment). THE AFFAIR is an intimate exploration of two marriages and an affair that disrupts them -- with all of the complexities and consequences that result.
Written by Sarah Treem, this provocative, one-hour relationship drama will be told separately from the male and female perspective. THE AFFAIR is an original concept by creators Sarah Treem and Hagai Levi, who will serve as executive producers alongside director Mark Mylod (SHAMELESS, Once Upon A Time).
