Exciting news! We have added two new original series to our incredible slate of acclaimed and award-winning programming. THE AFFAIR, a one-hour drama series starring Golden Globenominees Dominic West and Ruth Wilson, as well as Emmy nominee Maura Tierney and SAG Award nominee Joshua Jackson and HAPPYISH, a comedy starring Academy Award winner Philip Seymour Hoffman, Kathryn Hahn and Rhys Ifans.
THE AFFAIR explores the emotional and psychological effects of an extramarital affair. The provocative, intense drama will be told separately from the male and female perspectives. Wilson plays Alison, a young woman waiting tables at a popular Hamptons diner, trying to piece her life back together in the wake of a tragedy. Her husband, Cole (Jackson), struggles to keep it all together, with his wife and with the financially-strained ranch that has been in his family for generations. Their emotionally-charged marriage becomes even more complicated when Alison begins an affair with Noah (West), a New York City public school teacher and aspiring novelist who is spending the summer at his in-laws’ estate out on the island. Tierney plays Helen, Noah’s college sweetheart, best friend, mother of his children, lover and wife of 17 years.
HAPPYISH is a dark examination of our pursuit of happiness, a pursuit that might just be the very thing causing our unhappiness in the first place. Thom Payne (Hoffman) is 42, his new bosses at work are half his age and they say the words ‘digital’ and ‘social’ far too often. His mentor and boss, Jonathan (Ifans) tells him to “rebrand” himself, his corporate headhunter tells him happiness is a myth. Acclaimed actress Kathryn Hahn stars as Lee Payne, Thom’s wife, who is looking for a larger goal, a purpose, a meaning.
