TV show description:      
Based on the Dutch drama series Overspel, this dramatic series revolves around a beautiful photographer who begins an affair with the lawyer for a powerful family.

Following a chance meeting between professional photographer Sara Hanley (Hannah Ware) and top attorney Jack McAllister (Stuart Townsend), the two discover they have an instant and undeniable attraction. Unfortunately, they’re both already married. Sara and Jack realize something is missing in their marriages, and fight against the realization that they’ve met their soulmates in one another.

Sara is married to Drew Stafford (Chris Johnson), a successful prosecutor with political aspirations, and they have a seven-year-old son, Oliver, together.

Unbeknownst to Sara, Jack is the in-house counsel to a powerful and shady entrepreneur, Thatcher Karsten (James Cromwell). Jack is married to Thatcher’s daughter, Elaine (Wendy Moniz). She’s is a smart and determined woman who’s trying to make her Chicago café a success on her own terms — while still being a good mother to their 16-year-old twins, Valerie (Elizabeth McLaughlin) and Victor (Braeden Lemasters).

As Sara and Jack struggle with their feelings and their guilt, Thatcher’s brother-in-law is murdered, and all evidence points to Thatcher’s mentally-challenged son, T.J. Karsten (Henry Thomas).

Things become even more complicated when Sara’s husband becomes the prosecuting attorney in the high-profile murder case, a case that could secure his political future. Jack will be the lawyer for the defense.

The lovers quickly find themselves in an impossible situation -– on opposite sides of a murder investigation.

    PLEASE DO NOT CANEL THIS SHOW AS IT HAS BECOME MY FAVORITE SHOW ON TV. PLEASE GIVE IT ANOTHER SEASON – THEY DID KIND OF LEAVE IT OPEN AND JUST WONDERING WHO SARAH ORDERED A DRINK FOR. MY HUSBAND WAS @ INGALLS HOSPITAL WHEN THEY FILMED THE HOSPITAL SCENES WHEN SARAH WAS SHOT. IT WAS ON HIS FLOOR CCU. JUST DISAPPOINTED THATCHER COMMIT SUICIDE AND POOR VIC IS IN JAIL. IF IT WAS THE FINALE I GUESS IT ALL ENDED WELL. IT WILL JUST IT YOUR IMAGINATION WHO SARAH ENDS UP WITH.

    The finale was a great show, and a little sad in many ways. Please, ABC, do not cancel
    this show. Loved it from the beginning, and couldn’t wait to watch it after “Revenge”!
    We need more drama TV these days; shows that leave you “hanging” when it is over.
    Just like “24” did a few years back. Can’t wait to find out who Sara was waiting for
    with her glass of wine!

  7. Vicki says
