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.

    I wanted to hate this show because the theme is such a ****** thing, but to my surprise they haven’t glamoured up cheating instead show how painful and confusing it is for everyone involved. And hey throw in a mobster father in law and a DA soon to be ex husband and you just know this is going to get even more complex.

    I like this show a lot! Despite the heated scenes, the first few weeks were a bit slow, but each week it gets better. I would hate to see it cancelled.

    I love this show! Please don’t cancel it. It has a great cast and a great story-line. I can’t believe it has not picked up a following.
    I already feel invested in the characters. Two people in good marriages,suddenly drawn to each other. I think it’s a story a lot of people can relate to. Give it a chance!!
