Remember "Nip/Tuck," the best F/X series of all time? Well the producer of that, Sean Jablonski, has an awesome new creation on USA that is my new must-watch TV show.
It's called "Satisfaction," and here's why you should watch. (The new series airs: July 17th, Thursdays at 10/9c).
Neil Truman has what should be a perfect life with all the material possessions you could ever want, along with a beautiful wife and a seemingly fairytale happy marriage.
Except all is not as it seems.
One day, Neil comes home and discovers that his wife Grace is carrying on an affair with a male escort. Neil is of course shocked and goes to confront him. After the tussle, the male escort throws him his jacket.
That's when -- RING RING. Unwittingly, the escort has left his phone with the cuckolded husband!
Neil answers, and it's one of the male escort's clients! In a spur of the moment decision Neil accepts the appointment with the woman on the other end of the line, probably to get back at his wife.
"I've never done anything like this before," the female client tells Neil when he meets her at a bar.
"Neither have I," Neil replies.
And boom -- so starts this post-modern love story where husband and wife make some very unconventional choices in order to try to save their marriage and keep each other, er, satisfied.
I kind of love that a TV show is finally asking modern questions that few shows ever ask, like: Is monogamy realistic? Is love enough? Plus it stars the phenomenal actor Matt Passmore ("The Glades") as Neil Truman and one of my favorite actresses Stephanie Szostak ("The Devil Wears Prada," "Dinner for Schmucks") as Grace Truman.
The question this show seeks to ask is pretty much summed up by the series' tagline: "Would you risk your marriage to save it?"
Here, check out the trailer, and you'll get as excited as I am:
