Showtime just moved up the premiere of its new drama series by a week, and now we get a new look at it. The Affair stars Dominic West and Ruth Wilson in the story of an illicit Hamptons romance and its fallout told separately from the male and female perspectives – complete with distinct memory biases. Joshua Jackson and Maura Tierney co-star as the respective wronged spouses. Sarah Treem scripted from a story she created with Hagai Levi, and Jeffrey Reiner directs. The tale of two cracked marriages bows October 12 on the premium channel, which also released the key art today.
