Showtime’s The Affair sure looks like a steamy thriller. The new drama explores the emotional and psychological effects of an extramarital affair – told from both the male and female points of view.
The cast is amazing – Dominic West (The Wire), Maura Tierny (ER), Joshua Jackson (Fringe) and Ruth Wilson (Luther) – and the the concept is fascinating. The trailer is, as advertised, steamy. Check it out after the jump. The Affair premieres on Sunday, October 10th.
Quite possibly the most glamorous, tempestuous relationship in film history was that of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. In Burton and Taylor, Dominic West and Helena Bonham Carter portray the legendary stars as they reunite for the 1983 stage revival of Noel Coward’s play, Private Lives – about a divorced couple who unexpectedly reunite while honeymooning with their respective spouses – and discover that performing it puts their personal lives in front of a live audience every night.
Burton and Taylor premieres on BBC America on October 16 at 9/8C. For the full press release, follow the jump.
