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 love this show. But I hate how they show this show a few months and then don’t show it for several months. Just like Dallas and Revenge. It is kind of like reading a book half way and then not reading the other half for 6 months. I hate this.

    I am very impressed by this show, it leaves me in anticipation of what is going to happen next. The cast are incredibly talented and I give to them their due. Please renew this show for further episodes and Season 2. I am a lifetime watcher but switch to ABC for this show alone. Good Luck and thank you to the cast members, you have me riveted.

    Actors aren’t needed for reality and talk shows so they cost less to produce. They don’t need writers and wardrobe people etc. When there is a good show, good actors and good plot, right away the network wants to cancel the show.

    I love this show! Please don’t cancel. It’s so different from other shows on TV. Its awesome that there are so many new shows out this season that AREN’T reality shows. Reality TV is getting old, boring, and looking as cheap as they are to produce! There are way too many!

    I think it is really good – would like it if there was season 2 I am enjoying it immensely it is well written and the cast is brilliant.

  9. Johnnie Hardy says

    I think Betrayal should be renewed. I wonder if the television networks are considering the people who watch online…due to a very busy schedule…I love being able to watch my favorite shows…I would love to not have to watch the commercials but I do understand that some have to be endured.
