The Affair

"The Affair" takes a look at the causes and consequences of an extramarital affair, more specifically two couples and their families. On one side are the rancher Cole (Joshua Jackson) and his wife Allison (Ruth Wilson), who works as a waitress. The loss of her child casts a long shadow over her marriage. The Showtime series is by author Sarah Treem and producer Hagai Levi. Both worked together on the now discontinued HBO drama In Treatment, whose Israeli original was created and produced by Levi, while Treem co-produced and authored. So Allison gets involved in an affair with Noah (Dominic West). He has been married to his high school sweetheart Helen (Maura Tierney) for 17 years. The two are "best friends" and have four children.
