Showtime has released a teaser trailer for their new series The Affair which stars Dominic West (300, The Wire) and Ruth Wilson (Saving Mr. Banks, The Prisoner) in a story about an extramarital affair in the Hamptons but shown from both the male and female perspectives, “using the distinct memory biases of both to tell the story.” Sounds like a cool way to tell such a story. Joshua Jackson (Fringe, Dawson’s Creek) and Maura Tierney (ER, News Radio) co-star as the wronged spouses. Hit the jump now to watch The Affair teaser trailer.
