The show is billed as "the exploration of two marriages and the emotional and psychological effects of the affair that disrupts them."

"The Affair will be told separately from the male and female perspectives -- using the distinct memory biases to both misdirect and intrigue," the cable network said in a news release.

The poster for the Hamptons-set saga features West and Wilson looking serious with only their heads and shoulders above water.

A teaser for the sexy new drama can be viewed here.
