Airdate: The Affair

2015-01-11_1716Critically-acclaimed US drama The Affair will have its Australian premiere next month on Showcase.

The series, starring Dominic West and Ruth Wilson, and is up for Golden Globe Awards.

It premiered in the US in October.

At once deeply observed and intriguingly elusive, The Affair explores the emotional effects of an extramarital relationship. 

Welcome to “The End of the World.” Noah Solloway has escaped the city with his family to his in-laws’ estate in eastern Long Island. He’s joined by his loving wife, Helen, and their four precocious children. At the same time, local Montauk waitress Alison Lockhart struggles with her husband, Cole, to move past a recent tragedy. In a chance encounter, Noah and Alison meet and connect. But in this bucolic beach town, it’s impossible to avoid someone you yearn to see again.

Tuesdays from February 10 at 7:30pm on Showcase.

    Commercial TV can’t show M rated stuff at 7:30pm.
    No problem for Foxtel, so they exploit the fact that there is no decent scripted content on at that time.

  2. Yay x2. Been waiting for this ever since it premiered in the U.S.

    One thing I have noted lately with premiering shows on Foxtel is that they seem to have targeted the 7:30pm timeslot. I’m unsure this & even ‘The 100’ is appropriate for that timeslot, but anyway.

    I just wonder if Foxtel believe they will get more viewers for these shows a 7:30 rather than 8:30.

  3. Yay! That the last of the interesting fall shows scheduled.

    Showcase seemed like the mostly place for it to end up. No need to fast track it and it will benefit from the GG nominations.
