Sylvia Hoeks (Blade Runner 2049) stars as a photographer having a passionate affair with a defense attorney who’s currently representing an accused murderer. The prosecuting attorney assigned to the case turns out to be…you guessed it…her husband! Things get sticky.
In the Netherlands, the series was titled Overspel and ran for 32 episodes over three seasons from 2011 to 2015. Here’s a trailer, in Dutch with English subtitles, which is how The Adulterer will be shown by Walter Presents..
