Showtime’s new drama The Affair is becoming more and more intriguing.
The provocative series stars Dominic West as Noah, a New Yorker who begins to have an affair with local waitress Allison (Ruth Wilson) while vacationing for the summer in Long Island. However, both of them are married: Allison to a tough cowboy (Joshua Jackson), and Noah to his college sweetheart (Maura Tierney), whose lives are turned upside down by the affair.
Fringe and Dawson’s Creek alum Joshua Jackson is making the jump to Showtime for the cable channel’s pilot The Affair. Jackson will play a Long Island cowboy (that’s not a metaphor, his character actually manages a ranch) in the drama that deals with spouses, wandering eyes, and the effects of an affair on two families.

Watch the duo debate if their attraction is an addiction while they navigate super-stardom and a keen public interest in their personal lives — all the while attempting to be taken seriously as stage actors in a failing Broadway play.

The Wire and The Hour star Dominic West has been cast as the male lead of Showtime’s pilot The Affair.
West’s character, Noah, is a married high school teacher with four children whose life is rocked when he meets a woman “he thinks is his soul mate.”
Written and executive produced by Sarah Treem, a producer and writer for House of Cards and In Treatment, the show will explore how an affair rattles two marriages, telling the story separately from the male and female perspective. In Treatment‘s Hagai Levi will also executive produce.
