VIDEO: Showtime Debuts New Teaser, Key Art for THE AFFAIR

VIDEO: Showtime Debuts New Teaser, Key Art for THE AFFAIRToday, Showtime debuted the poster for its provocative new drama series THE AFFAIR, which premieres on Sunday, October 12th at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The highly-anticipated series stars Golden Globe® nominees Dominic West (The Wire) and Ruth Wilson (Luther), as well as Emmy® nominee Maura Tierney (ER) and SAG Award® nominee Joshua Jackson (Fringe). Currently in production on ten episodes in and around Long Island, New York, The Affair is the exploration of two marriages and the emotional and psychological effects of The Affair that disrupts them. Check out a new teaser, in addition to the key art, below!

THE AFFAIR will be told separately from the male and female perspectives - using the 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 Cole (Joshua Jackson), struggles to keep it all together, both with his wife and 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 Noah (Dominic West), 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. Award-winning playwright and writer/producer Sarah Treem (House of Cards, In Treatment) wrote the original script from a story created with Hagai Levi. They first worked together on the American adaption of Levi's show In Treatment. Treem and Levi will both serve as executive producers, along with executive producer and director Jeffrey Reiner (FridayNight Lights) and executive producer Eric Overmyer (The Wire).
