DESCRIPTION: (from ABC's press release, May 2013) A chance meeting between photographer Sara Hadley (Hannah Ware) and Attorney Jack McAllister (Stuart Townsend) leads to an instant and undeniable attraction. Sarah's husband, Drew (Chris Johnson), is a successful prosecutor with political aspirations, while Jack is married to Elaine (Wendy Moniz), the daughter of his boss, Thacher Karsten (James Cromwell). When Karsten's brother-in-law Lou is murdered, all evidence points to Karsten's son, T.J. (Henry Thomas). Jack, the company's lead counsel, will have to defend him, but for Sara's prosecutor husband, Drew, this is the kind of high-profile murder case that can secure his political future. Just as Sara and Jack's affair is starting, the lovers find themselves in an impossible situation -- on opposite sides of a murder investigation. "Betrayal" stars Hannah Ware ("Shame," "Boss") as Sara, Stuart Townsend ("The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen") as Jack, James Cromwell ("Babe," "American Horror Story") as Thacher Karsten, Henry Thomas ("E.T.," "Gangs of New York") as T.J. Karsten, Chris Johnson ("The Vampire Diaries") as Drew, Wendy Moniz ("Guiding Light," "The Guardian") as Elaine, Elizabeth McLaughlin ("The Clique") as Val and Braeden Lamasters ("Men of a Certain Age") as Vic. "Betrayal" was written by David Zabel ("ER") and directed by Patty Jenkins ("The Killing," "Monster") and is executive-produced by David Zabel, Rob Golenberg ("Red Widow") and Alon Aranya. "Betrayal" is produced by ABC Studios.
