Nearly half of all adults have cheated — and those are just the ones that admit it! What goes through their minds before, during and after the act? Why do they do it? And how does it impact their relationships with spouses, lovers, friends, and family?


Unfaithful tells true stories of real couples dealing with infidelity. In each hour-long episode, we follow two stories of infidelity from beginning to end and learn what happened from the perspective of the people involved – the cheater, the victim, the “other” and the friends and family affected by the betrayal.


Through first-person storytelling and cinematic recreations, we see the unfaithful relationship evolve and we follow the twists and turns, the lies and revelations that make every act of cheating an emotional game of cat and mouse.  Each story builds to a surprising conclusion when all the deceptions are laid bare and the truth is revealed.
