LOS ANGELES, Aug. 2 (UPI) -- British actress Ruth Wilson is to play the female lead in the drama pilot "The Affair," Showtime announced.
The "Luther" and "The Lone Ranger" actress will play the role of Alison, a "young married woman, working in a pancake house, trying to piece her life back together in the wake of a tragedy," a synopsis said.
Dominic West will play Noah, "a father of four, who makes Alison question the choices she's made, and wonder whether there's a way to start all over again."
Playwright, screenwriter and producer Sarah Treem wrote the original script for the pilot with Hagai Levi. The pair previously collaborated on the U.S. adaptation of Levi's Israeli show "In Treatment."
