UK and Ireland pay channel Sky Atlantic has acquired The Affair, the Golden Globe-winning drama in which Dominic West (The Wire) and Ruth Wilson (Luther) play people engaged in an illicit relationship.
The deal with CBS Studios International covers the first season of the Showtime series, which will begin broadcasting in May, plus the recently-announce second.
The series explores the emotional and psychological effects of an extramarital affair played out from the differing male and female perspectives.
Sky Atlantic’s director, Zai Bennett, said the show’s “intricate storytelling and phenomenal acting sit perfectly on the channel, further cementing our channel’s position as the home of quality drama in the UK”.
