Jackson is set to play a cowboy named Cole, who runs a family ranch in Long Island. He is married to Allison (Ruth Wilson), who works at a pancake house after suffering a tragedy, and is working toward getting her life back together.
Staying true to the show’s name, Allison will have an affair with Noah (Dominic West), who is a New Yorker spending his summer on Long Island. Noah has a wife of his own, Helen (Maura Tierney), who doesn’t take well to her husband’s infidelity.
If picked up, “The Affair” is likely to begin airing on Showtime.
